Abingdon, MD, United States, 2007/06/21 - With the travel season upon us, it's important to remember the safety of our small children. Baltimore company, Bringing Baby, provides travel and safety resources along with guaranteed safe rental baby equipment & supplies for travelers.
Bringing Baby, LLC is a company new to the region, devoted to supporting families visiting the Greater Baltimore and Harford County areas.
Bringing Baby delivers safe, clean rental baby equipment for young children to help families ensure their children’s comfort and health when away from home.
The company is owned and operated by Charmagne Wallace, a mother of three - all of whom are frequent flyers. With extensive experience traveling with her children, Ms. Wallace appreciates the struggle to get children accustomed to new and unsettling surroundings, on top of juggling their schedules while traveling. Add to this the pressure of hauling a stroller, play pen, bouncy seat and high chair to their destination, many families avoid travel altogether.
Safety while traveling is the primary concern at Bringing Baby. In February 2000, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the SAFE KIDS Campaign found that 82 percent of the hotel and motel cribs inspected had at least one safety hazard; and that 52 percent of the play yards and mesh cribs had at least one safety hazard. In addition many were not maintained properly or had been recalled. Unfortunately, the problem persists. Many news programs have conducted their own special investigations, including Dateline NBC and an NBC affiliate right here in Maryland less than a year ago. In each instance, the investigators found significant safety hazards in the overwhelming majority. The hazards in the use of second-hand, used or borrowed equipment, are too numerous to list.
To protect the children it serves, Bringing Baby (bringingbaby.com) provides equipment which is new each year and exceeds standards set by the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA). All car seats are graded as “A” in all categories by the Consumer Reports organization. All equipment meets all federal standards. Each piece of equipment is properly maintained, cleaned and sanitized, and undergoes a strict safety inspection before it is delivered. In addition, supplies, such as fresh formula, food, and diapers can be delivered along with the equipment.
For more information, the company’s website includes product rates, rental policies and procedures, as well as additional safety resources. If desired, Charmagne Wallace is available for interviews.
