    this along with putting bumbo seats on tables/countertops...
    putting children into a walker, then not closing off stairs....


    i'm surprised they haven't had a warning that cribs are dangerous because older children can climb in and out of them, possibly falling and cracking their head...

    common sense people? I guess it isn't all that "common" afterall...

    All grounds for suing in the US. And then the manufacturer rolls over and pays, rather than having the bad publicity which perpetuates the cycle.

    Common sense and no-fault accidents were last seen in the US in the late 1970s, I believe.

    Yup, North America is hysterical. Canada is worse. They hop on the `ban - bandwagon` as soon as there`s even one death or injury.
    Poor babies, though:(

    We are doing our best to export the nonsense, though. Trying to level the playingfield across the world.
    So, if you think you can just sit back and laugh at the US and its lawyers (and Canada, too, I guess), beware because it is coming to a legal system near you soon enough.
