SAN ANTONIO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Go Mama Go Designs is proud to announce that their award winning, scientifically safe Wonder Bumpers - Vertical Crib Guards, have been excluded from the crib bumper ban. After a year long investigation by the Maryland Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, Director Joshua Sharfstein announced the ban on the sale of traditional crib bumper pads, effective June 21, 2013. Maryland is the first state to ban the sale of crib bumper pads. The City of Chicago adopted a ban that became effective in April 2012.
Since their inception, Go Mama Go Designs has always been armed with a mission to keep babies safe and raise awareness on safe sleep environments. The Wonder Bumpers, which wrap tightly around individual crib rails, have undergone extensive 3rd party testing to scientifically and medically prove the safety of its design. The test concluded Wonder Bumpers allow for significant airflow in the crib in comparison to traditional crib bumpers and other crib bumper alternatives. Equally important, no other bumper alternative provides 24” of padded protection against head and facial injury while inherently eliminating the risk of suffocation.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recently updated their safe sleep guidelines to warn against the use of traditional crib bumper pads. “We want to assure parents that while city and state governments are taking action and enacting these bans on traditional crib bumper pads that placing your baby in a bare crib is not the only option to keep your baby safe,” said Catherine Hall, co-founder of Go Mama Go Designs. “You can give your baby a safe sleep environment that prevents limb entrapment and head injury without the risk of suffocation. The patented Wonder Bumpers are the only vertical bumper on the market and are scientifically proven to be safe alternative bedding.”
