Every summer we hear the stories of children who are accidentally left in vehicles by their parents or caregivers, only to be found dead hours later. Every parent believes that such a tragedy will never happen to them – that they would never forget their sleeping child in the car or that exhaustion so deep will never occur to the point that they don’t realize they never stopped to drop their child off at daycare. Yet year after year we hear stories of a too-tired parent who left their little one in a vehicle on a hot summer day – something that all too frequently ends in tragedy.

If you’re pregnant or just welcomed a new addition to the family, an infant carseat is at the very top of your must-get list, and for good reason. You don’t necessarily need a closet full of baby pea coats, the latest decked out high chair, or a cupboard filled to the brim with bottles when bringing home a new baby; the only bare-bones, essential item you need to leave those hospital doors with is a carseat. While carseats are truly a dime a dozen these days, we want to be sure that the Aton Q from Cybex is on your radar when shopping around, as we are utterly obsessed with the modern design and safety features that this infant carseat boasts. Come take a look…
As summer approaches, many families begin to plan family vacations. We dream of fun at theme parks, exciting adventures around the country, or a relaxing vacation at the beach. All of those things sound wonderful – in theory – until you realize you have to actually get to the vacation spot before you can enjoy all of those things. And even when you get there, there is the headache of all the gear you have to carry, making sure everyone has snacks (we don’t want any hangry toddlers after all), and generally trying to keep everyone happy, all while making sure you catch brief moments of joy to share on social media so you can prove that you did, indeed, have a good time with your family. Experienced parents know that fun family vacations are do-able if you have the right #lifehacks up your sleeve. Below are some of the best travel tricks and tips for a headache-free family vacation.
When it’s time to shop for a new car seat for your growing baby, the options can seem endless. There are so many different brands that have so many different features, it can be hard to decipher which one is the best for you and your family. The first and foremost thing on any parent’s list is safety. They want to be ensured that their baby, toddler, or older child is safe in their seat. After that, parents often look towards other factors – comfort levels, ease of installation, and the ability to grow with your child. Britax is one company that is synonymous with safety, and their line of car seats have all those features and more, in their convertible car seats. They have several different collections, but their newest – the Advocate ClickTight ARB Convertible car seat – takes those features to a whole new level.

Venturing into your local baby store can cause a serious case of sticker shock. Whether you’re on baby number one or baking the last member of your basketball team, buying that one essential item that gets used everyday is no fun (or cheap) task. Once your baby has outgrown her infant carseat or smaller convertible seat and makes the switch to forward facing, it’s time to once again trek to the store to buy yet another carseat to add to the collection.
This time around, go easy on your wallet, but still rest assured that your child will be safe and secure while traveling in the car. The COSCO High Back Booster gives you serious bang for your buck, which all moms can appreciate!

As parents, we love watching our children progress. We eagerly cheer as they begin to crawl and walk, and sniff back tears as they head off to their first day of preschool donning their new backpack. We genuinely get excited to watch them move into newer and greater things. So many parents treat upgrading car seats with that same enthusiasm, and rush their children through the stages, such as prematurely forward-facing their toddlers or buying your preschooler a car seat that just utilizes the regular seat belt. We’re here today to discuss why you should keep your child harnessed in the car for as long as possible.
