NIH STATEMENT ON THE NEW CRIB SAFETY STANDARDS

Yvonne T. Maddox, Ph.D.

On June 28th, new mandatory safety standards

for infant cribs will take effect, helping to ensure a safe sleep
environment for infants in the United States. The new standards released
by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) require manufacturers and
retailers to meet new safer crib standards, which include stopping the
manufacture and sale of dangerous, traditional, drop side cribs.
According to the CPSC, the new standards will ensure that mattress
supports are made stronger, that crib hardware is more durable, and that
crib safety testing is more rigorous.


Gaps may form between the crib mattress and the drop side rails, due to
errors in assembly or installation or to wear or malfunction from use.
Infants can become trapped in the gap and suffocate as a result. According
to the CPSC, detaching drop side rails were associated with at least 32
infant deaths since 2000.


The new standards are an important step in ensuring a safe environment for
infants as they sleep. Parents and caregivers also can take several other
steps to ensure a safe sleep environment for their infants. The American
Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that infants not share a bed with
adults or other children and should sleep in a separate but nearby place,
such as a crib that meets safety standards, to reduce the risk of Sudden
Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The risk of SIDS has been shown to be
reduced when the infant sleeps in the same room as the mother. The AAP
recommends that the infant's crib or bassinet be placed in the parents'
bedroom. Infants should never sleep on a couch or armchair.


Other important steps to ensure a safe sleep environment and to reduce the
risk of SIDS are to:


  -- Always place an infant on his or her back to sleep, for naps and at
night. Infants who sleep on their backs have a lower risk of SIDS than do
infants placed on their stomachs or sides. Infants who usually sleep on
their backs face an even greater risk of SIDS if placed on their stomachs.


  -- Place infants for sleep on a firm sleep surface, such as a safety
approved crib mattress with a fitted sheet. Infants should never be
placed on a soft surface, such as a pillow, quilt, or sheepskin.


  -- Keep pillows, cushioned crib bumpers, toys, loose bedding, and other
soft objects out of an infant's sleep area. All items should be kept away
from an infant's face.
