Joyce’s Story: How Keeping Babies Safe Began

For Joyce Davis, President of Keeping Babies Safe, inspiration was born of tragedy. Joyce lost her four month-old son, Garret, through the simple act of adding a supplemental mattress to her boy’s portable crib—a mattress advertised as suitable and safe.

Determined to spare other families this heartbreak, she founded Keeping Babies Safe to educate parents about crib and sleep safety, and to advocate for more stringent consumer product safety regulation laws.

“These dangers are completely preventable,” Joyce says. “Cribs are the most important product in your home for your baby, the only place where your child is left unattended. We supply reliable information to parents so they can be better informed to protect their babies.”
