Recent research show that the number of infant deaths due to crib bumpers has tripled. These products have no benefit, only risks, such as suffocation and strangulation. It's time we make a change. Join me and pediatricians around the country and demand that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ban baby bumpers once and for all. Sign our petition and share it with ‪#‎SayNoToBumpers‬
