Nursery injuries to little kids rises.

Injuries to small children attributed to nursery products -- anything from a crib to a stroller to a car carrier -- rose sharply in 2009, a study of emergency room visits by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found.

More than 77,000 children under the age of 5 had injuries connected to products geared for them, the analysis showed. About 64,000 injuries were reported the year prior and 62,500 in 2007. On average, about 88 small children die as a result of injuries related to these products.
