As I sit here typing this, I’m watching the snow fall outside my window. It inspired me to share some great resources on car seat safety during the cold winter months. When I was pregnant with Olivia, I had no clue there were so many dos and don’ts to car seat safety. I had no idea that there was a right and wrong way to buckle your baby into their car seat. I had no clue that it’s not safe for your baby to wear a coat while buckled into their car seat. I just assumed that as long as the car seat is installed properly and you fasten your baby in tightly that they’d be safe.
There is nothing more important to me than my children and their well-being. I know the same is true for you. I know that no loving parent would intentionally put their child into a situation where they could get hurt. But I also know that most people are simply unaware of some of these things. Like me, most people don’t know there are so many common mistakes when it comes to car seat safety. There are even products made for car seats that are NOT safe to use and yet they’re still on the market available for purchase. This is not only insane but one of the reasons I wanted to take a little time to share these articles and photos to help bring more awareness to car seat safety for parents like me who just have no idea a coat isn’t safe to wear. So I’ve compiled some great resources on the subject to help you keep your babies safe and warm this winter! None of the following resources are mine. I am just sharing them on this page.
