Rail Against the Danger
Posted by Crunchy Nana on April 30, 2015.
My talented cousin Mariellen Jacobs is not only a loved family member, but we consider her a member of the Over the Moon Diapers family as well - she designed our precious logo!
In January of this year, near tragedy struck the Jacobs family when Clark, a sophomore in college, fell out of his loft bed while sleeping and fractured his skull. After several days in the hospital, his condition worsened, and he had emergency brain surgery to save his life. Thankfully, he has pulled through and is now making incredible strides in his recovery, but the road ahead is still a long one.
Most of our customers are still in that season of life where we're worried about the transition from crib to toddler bed, and of course railings are a necessity at that time! However, the idea that a teenager or young adult - or anyone, really - can sleep safely on a 6-foot or 7-foot loft bed without a railing is just plain crazy! On behalf of the safety of college students like her son, Mariellen is campaigning to make railings on high beds mandatory.
Please help spread the word!
