If you have a baby, toddler or child with toys, you are probably really aware of the need to stay apprised of recalls. Sometimes, it's just a matter of getting a replacement part or some other quick fix for the problem that's been found with the product. Sometimes, though, the product needs to be replaced or retired.
When recalls occur, there have been hazards reported about the specific product; often the problem is just a concern for possible incidences, but often there have been serious injuries reported that are concerning enough for the CPSC and the product manufacturer to take action for consumer safety.
With all this said, if you're a busy parent like I am, it is difficult to stay current on recalls that actually might affect a member of your family.
To make it simple, I've got two pages on my site that enable you to make quick checks of products and/or just read through a list of the most recent recalls. Click here to check out all of your infants' items, and click here for a current list from the CPSC of recalls in general.
Aside from recalls, it's important to know what's going on in parenting circles. Knowing what others are going through, current topics of interest, and just news that might affect you and your family is a good thing! Join us on our "Parenting Resource" page for the news on what's happening with new treatments for various conditions, psychology research, neonatal studies, and other general parenting news.
