Child Home Product Safety

Child Home Product Safety

Child Home Product Safety is one of parents most top priorities. Parents and caregivers want to do everything possible to keep their children safe.

In 2005, almost 60,000 children under the age of 5 were treated in U.S. emergency rooms for injuries associated with child home products.

Every year thousands of children are severely injured or killed in accidents associated with products used in and around homes.

Many of us have misconceptions about children’s product safety. Child products are recalled, on average, twice per week.

Because of the lack of mandatory standards and testing, there is no guarantee that a new child home product is safe.

A better and basic understanding of the child home product safety system and its flaws will help parents take steps to protect their children.

Product testing and recalls

Through product testing and evaluation, the toy industry and other child product industries work to keep unsafe products off the market in the first place.

The most common reasons for recalls are the result of toys that contain impermissible levels of lead paint and toys made with powerful micro magnets.

Hazards from small magnets occurred when they were ingested and swallowed and causing intestinal injury.

A recall is when the government (The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) and the manufacturer remove a product from the market because it is dangerous and can hurt or kill a child.

Steps parents can take to insure child home product safety:

  • Take an inventory of the children's products in your house.
  • Check your list against the list of recalls.
  • Encourage friends and caregivers to take product inventory and check for recalled products also.

Keeping our kids safe starts by securing our own homes.


Child home product safety tips:

  • Mobile baby walkers may not be that good a choice where stairs, pools and other dangers are present.
  • Tiny rubber balls from packages and vending machines should be kept away from children 3 and under.
  • Babies should never be left unattended in bathtub seats or rings.
  • Infants 12 months or under should never sleep in adult or youth size beds.
  • Keep children away from water buckets. Even with a small amount of liquid a child can drown.
  • Never put anything on a child (drawstrings, necklaces,) that can catch on the corner posts of cribs.
  • Do not allow children to play around garage doors. Always be present when opening and shutting electric garage doors.
  • We should never tie pacifiers or ribbons around a child’s neck.
  • A child should never be left unattended in a stroller even while asleep.

There are many more rules and tips to add to this list. We have not yet hit the tip of the iceberg.
