informational content and downloadable tips for caregivers on its
website, Facebook page and Twitter feed. Dr. Alan Greene, a
pediatrician, author, and father of four will provide reasons on
Summer Infant's The Dr. Is In(R) blog as to why swaddling is
considered a safe sleep best practice.
Summer Infant also is partnering with Child Passenger Safety
Instructor (CPSI) Courtney Barry, who will contribute regular content
to the Summer Infant blog to inform parents on topics such as the
proper installation of a car seat in a vehicle, tips to make sure
baby is safely strapped into a car seat, and knowing the right time
to transition out of an infant car seat. Summer Infant's Stop. Think.
Guide of safety tips for caregivers also is available on the website.
As a way to give back to the community, Summer Infant made a large
donation of baby items to Baby Buggy, an organization committed to
providing families in need with essential gear, clothing, and other
products with the goal of improving their safety, health and
well-being. The donation includes baby safety items from both the
Summer(R) and Born Free(R) brands, including bath tubs, safety gates,
car seats, swaddle blankets, bassinets, strollers, and more. The
items will be distributed through Baby Buggy's network of homeless
and women's shelters, nurse family partnership programs, and other
organizations committed to providing children in need with a safe
environment. This is the largest charitable donation to one
organization in the company's history.
"This contribution will help our organization's efforts in providing
products which are essential to improving the overall lives of
infants and families across the country," says Jessica Seinfeld,
founder of Baby Buggy.
Summer Infant distributes safety items in a number of categories,
ranging from car seats, baby monitors and safety gates to feeding,
safe sleep, and more. Some of the Company's new and existing safety
