When it comes to car seats, the baby game can get a little tricky. “What kind of seat do I need?” “How much money is this going to cost me?” “How do I install it into my car?” “Is there a way for me to avoid having to carry my baby around besides in a car seat?” "When do they need to face the front?" These are all common questions that are not always easy to find the answers to. BUT, if you are like me when I first joined the "mom's club," you won’t even know that you are supposed to ask these questions,. The fact is, there is a LOT of information/knowledge that often goes unspoken when it comes to car seat safety. This week you can look forward to seeing information about car seat safety that serves to raise awareness about how to save lives. Thanks to an amazing group of CPSTs (certified passenger safety technician) and my lovely Doula friend from Rainbow Baby Birthing Service, you can look forward to getting a plethora of information as we talk about all things carseats this week. I strongly encourage you to not only read the posts but to share the information as well. Car seats are not something we talk about enough, but at the end of the day it can save a child’s life. Politely correcting a fellow parent/caregiver may not always be the easiest, most comfortable thing to do, but it can potentiallysave lives.
