Safety Tips

jpma-iconThe first step in keeping your sleeping child safe is to provide a safe sleeping environment. The safest place for your baby to sleep is in a crib that meets all current Federal and ASTM standards. Look for the "JPMA Certified" label. All Delta Children products including cribs, bassinets, play yards and mattresses meet or exceed current safety standards. Our cribs are rigorously tested in our state-of-the-art testing facility to insure that they provide your child with the safest sleeping environment possible.

There are basic and easy steps you can take to keep your baby safe while sleeping and our goal is to help caregivers create safe sleeping environments for their newborns. We have included a print version and downloadable list of these steps for you to use in your home. The steps are easy, don't cost anything to follow and will help keep your baby safe.
