Car Safety Tips for Traveling With Babies

FOX24

There are so many things to have in your car to keep your baby protected, like car seats, mirrors, and shades.

Babies”R”Us Spokesperson Adrienne O’Hara advised, “Look for items that are crash tested. So of course you don’t want to have anything that if you were, God forbid, in a crash, you want something that is shatter resistant as a mirror or something that won’t be seen as a projectile. So that’s really important to think about when you are purchasing those items.”

It’s not just crash tested. Some newer car seats are rollover tested.

O’Hara noted, “That is something that is new coming to the market are rollover tested car seats. So it’s an important feature for parents to keep an eye out for.”

Before you get these products out of the box, remember to register. Fill out the product card either online, or mail it in. If something gets recalled, the manufacturer will contact you. That way, you can make sure your product is doing its job keeping your child safe

According to O’Hara, “Baby safety month is the time to think about it, but really all year long we want to make sure that parents feel educated and confident in those purchasing decisions.”
