I have recently discovered the world of car seat safety. A world, until now, I thought I was already a part of. I knew to rear face until two, make sure the straps are tight, chest clip on the chest. But I have learned so much more! (More to follow)
I didn’t start out knowing even those basic things. I look at some of the photos of our oldest four years ago in her car seat and cringe! It angers me that no one took the time to inform me of child passenger safety before my daughter was born. Don’t get me wrong- I’m not saying it is someone else’s job to teach new parents everything. In fact, I read every book, informational site, and watched every video I could get my hands on. But there was very little recommended or easy-to-find information on keeping kids safe in the car. That is my new mission- to inform others. If I can help save one life, it will be worth it. Here’s a link to an article on safekids.org that gives some basic, life-saving, child passenger safety tips. Be safe!
