With a new baby, we make sure their crib, furniture, toys and even baby clothes are safe. We examine their rocking horses as they grow older, and we baby proof our homes to keep them from harm. So why would we take any chances when it comes to car seats in our vehicles? Perhaps the youngest of parents don’t remember the pre-car seat days but plenty of us recall never being in a car seat when we were young.

valentinapowers 21 150x150 Baby Crib SafetyToday’s cribs are thankfully safer than their predecessors. The cribs of old are lovely to look at, but short on safety features. Children used to get their heads stuck between the bars all the time. Since mattresses didn’t adjust, bigger babies as they grew could one day stand up and flip themselves out of their cribs. Today’s cribs will let you sleep a little sounder at night, don’t worry. First, buy a new crib. It can be tempting to take on an old or used one, but there are a few problems with that. Yes, you will be saving money, but you don’t know if important screws and safety bars are missing. Even if you’re just bringing your own baby crib down from mom’s attic, remember, in just a few years, no less decades since you’ve used it, crib safety has improved greatly. There Read more
