Safety warning...

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a safety alert to warn parents and caregivers about the dangers of placing baby monitors (both audio and video) too close to sleep environments for babies, including cribs, bassinets and play yards. Since 2004, CPSC has received six reports of infants who were strangled by baby monitor cords placed too close to the crib. Most recently, an infant died of strangulation in March 2010 after being entangled in the camera monitor cord near her crib. CPSC recommends that parents use a wireless baby monitor to avoid the risk of strangulation or, if using a monitor with cords, make sure all are out of arm’s reach of the child.
