There have been several news reports today about a massive crib recall that will be announced tomorrow. Unfortunately this little bit of information is only serving to terrify new parents because they have no idea if their crib will be one that is recalled.
This is a classic case of keeping things in perspective. I’ve had dozens of calls and e-mails today from moms asking me if I feel it’s safe for their baby to sleep in the crib tonight. What I’ve continue to stress is that, until we know more information, providing a safe sleep environment for a baby is crucial. This means a crib with a firm mattress, a tight fitting sheet and nothing else. Or a co-sleeper that attaches to a parent’s bed.
As always, I will be posting a blog and information on my website as soon as I learn more about this recall.
