I participated in a campaign on behalf of Influence Central for the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I’ve never been one to just jump into any kind of decision.  I am a true Virgo in that sense.  I always put a lot of time and research into everything I do.  I know it annoys my husband some times, but usually, he thanks me in the end for making sure we are making the best decision possible.

My friends and family know I am constantly doing research, so whenever they have a question about something, they usually ask me for my opinion.  It feels good to be able to help others out when I can.

When I found out I was pregnant with my daughter, Kayleigh, my research instincts went into overdrive.  I researched everything – from what kind of prenatal vitamins I should take, to natural birthing methods, the best place for me to give birth in my area, and the best and safest baby products on the market.  I think I was probably one of the most prepared first-time parents ever.

When researching baby products, I read product reviews, news articles, talk to other mothers in my pregnancy group, do product comparisons, and just read everything I can get my hands on. 

One great resource that I absolutely love for researching baby products is the Baby Safety Zone.  The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA), who powers the Baby Safety Zone, is an expert in the safe selection and use of baby products and has been helping parents make the best product decisions for their babies for 35 years!  Now, that’s definitely a resource I can trust.

The info-graphic below shows how a product becomes JPMA certified. 


With so many baby products on the market, it can be hard to tell which ones are the safest.  The JPMA Certification Seal on a product proves that a manufacturer has tested a product sample annually to an established standard, so you can trust that it’s safe, and be confident in your purchase. 


The Baby Safety Zone is committed to reducing the number of nursery product related injuries through education and awareness about the safe selection and use of products, as well as preventative measures parents and caregivers can adopt immediately.  I don’t think we can ever be too safe when it comes to our children, and this is such a wonderful resource for parents.

 What resources do you use when researching baby products?
