readingThe world of child health safety issues are changing at an incredible pace. Every day we are faced with new challenges, but we also discover incredible new cures and new technologies as people work to find better ways to make this a safer world for our kids…and for the people taking care of them.

We will to do our best here to keep you up to date on what’s happening: we’ll include news stories, trade publications, expert analyses and case studies. Sometimes we’ll blog about it and sometimes we’ll just tweet…most of the time it’ll be current, but occasionally we’ll dig up older material to give you something to reference…and to think about. If you find something we’ve missed and you think it belongs here, please contact us and send us the link. The point is to keep us all informed so we can make better decisions for ourselves and the little ones in our care.
