Baby Safety Month was established by the Baby Products Manufacturers Association in 1983. Since then, events have been held every year in September to bring parents and manufacturers and retailers of children’s products back to the topic of safety standards and recommendations for children. For example, each year the Association offers an exciting set of tools to help children learn about safety.
Initially, the Association established a day to celebrate the safety of children in 1983. Three years later, the event was expanded to a week. The importance of this event is evidenced by the fact that in 1988, Jane Kennedy became the representative of the week. Three more years later, in 1991, the events officially began to be held throughout the month in order to attract more manufacturers, sellers, and parents. Each year, the JPMA award is given to the best manufacturer of the safest baby products.
- The 15 Anniversary Baby Safety Month was dedicated to safe sleep.

- In 2009, the governments of Nevada and California joined the event. The Governor of California signed a resolution establishing Baby Safety Month, and the Governor of Nevada signed a document recognizing the JPMA certification week.
- In 2010, the event was again dedicated to children’s safe sleep. A tour of American cities was held, within the framework of which sleep-related goods were presented.
