After I spent hours on the last blog post on car seat safety, a few friends told me I should make a poster out if it, outlining the main points without so many details. Gosh, you just can't please anybody these days, can you!?
I'm obviously joking. They had a good point. A shorter version will catch someone's attention much easier than something that makes them feel like they are back in school.
As a mom, you will inevitably run across those types of moms that are convinced they could do no wrong when it comes to their parenting skills...or the moms that get extremely offended at the mention of any advice.
"I know what's best for my child!"
^If I had a penny for every time I have heard that...I'd have lots and lots of pennies.
Oh and don't worry if you are one of "those moms." I've been there!
This is my son when he was 2 1/2
and this is right before his 5th birthday (he's playing around in his sister's car seat-he is actually FF in a Recaro ProSport)
This is my daughter 2 months after her 4th birthday
And this is her now, 2 months shy of 7 years old
It's hard looking back and seeing just how horribly they were restrained (or not) in seats...and knowing that had I gotten into any sort of significant accident, chances are, they would not be here today.
"When you know better, you do better"
Before my 3rd child, I learned...A LOT, so I don't have any real "car seat fails" with her, just staged ones.
So for the fun of it...this is how NOT to put your child in a car seat:
and this is the right way!
So without further ado, here is a much simplified, eye catching version of the car seat safety blogpost. Maybe it is enough to interest even the most perfect of all perfect moms. Enjoy!
