Deadly Baby Furniture Recalls

Since the nursery is your baby's most-frequented room, it's important to be aware of any baby furniture recalls that affect that little sanctuary.

Did you know Roman Blinds by IKEA were recalled after an infant death? Guess what blinds I have in Elena's room? That's right. IKEA Roman Blinds. If I've found things in my home, (and I'm a regular 'ole Joe) chances are there are some in your home as well. (Side Note: All blinds can be dangerous to your baby. See this article on how to make blinds and shades safe for your growing infant.

It is doubly important to be aware of these recalls if you have purchased second hand or received furniture as a hand-me-down.

Recalled cribs and playpens are discussed in a separate article.

All the Recall Reports are FREE...
However...

It takes a quite a bit of time for me to put all these reports together. That's time away from my precious family.

Would you consider giving a donation in return for the reports you will be using?

You receive the blessing of getting solid information and photos of any items that could be dangerous in your home. I receive the blessing of being able to help support my family through this site.

$1, $2, $5...The amount is irrelevant to me. I just appreciate your willingness to help out. Thank you!
