Statement From the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Crib Bumpers

Under the current Administration, CPSC has provided parents and caregivers with a clear and simple message: Bare Is Best. A baby is safest when he/she is placed in a crib, bassinet or play yard that meets CPSC’s mandatory safety standards—which are some of the strongest in the world. The baby should be placed on his/her back and there should be no clutter in a baby’s sleep environment—no pillows, no blankets or quilts, and no large stuffed animals. CPSC staff is continuing to research the safety of crib bumpers and we are continuing to work on federal rulemaking. CPSC believes that every child, no matter where he/she lives or what their circumstances, deserves to be safe when laid down to sleep.
