Maryland Ban On Baby Crib Bumpers To Take Effect

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- The nation's first statewide ban on the sale of crib bumper pads is taking effect in Maryland.

The ban begins Friday.

Health officials say crib bumper pads offer no meaningful benefit and pose potentially serious risks to infants, including suffocation.

Maryland's health department notes that the American Academy of Pediatrics, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Institutes of Health all advise against their use.
