Giveaway Results: A Trio of Infant/Child Safety Products


Congratulations to our winner- entry #49 (Mindy) on winning this prize pack. Thank you all so much for entering and please visit our site each Tuesday for a new giveaway!

More than 24,000 kids are hurt in a shopping cart each year. Next time you go shopping, you won’t have to worry about your child being injured in a runaway cart. The Cart Stopper attaches with a soft suction cup to any clean vehicle surface (even holds up in the rain) and the other end fits snugly through a hole in the cart, so the cart can’t move while you unload your groceries. When you’re done, simply remove using the pull tab. The Cart Stopper is a sensible way to keep your child safe and your shopping cart secure; also reduces car damage related to runaway carts. The compact design makes it easy to store in your purse, diaper bag, or glove compartment. Available at


Each year, dozens of children die because of one simple accident: an unforgotten child is left in his or her car seat and dies of hyperthermia. So far this year, 42 children have died from hyperthermia (that’s higher than last year’s total of 35). Baby Alert International is trying to prevent it from happening again with a passive monitoring system. The Smart Pad is an ultra-thin sensor pad that goes under the fabric of a child’s car seat. The alarm unit is connected to your keychain. If the driver walks away from the car without removing the child from the car seat, the alarm will sound. The Smart Clip and Toddler Alert are also available.

One of the most dangerous pieces of baby furniture is the crib. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), approximately 50 infants die each year from crib-related incidents. The all new Crib Tent II with the Inside Surround Net gives extra protection for children by helping to prevent limbs from getting caught, sprained, and broken through the crib’s rungs. Crib Tent II does not allow the child to climb out of the crib, which could lead to injury. It also prevents siblings’ toys, books, and games from being tossed into the crib and it keeps the child’s own bottles, stuffed animals, and playthings from being thrown out. It also discourages insects and unwelcome pets through the added safety of the Inside Surround Net, which helps to restrict entry from ALL sides of crib as well as the top.
