5 Tips to Ensure You Never Forget Your Baby in the Car

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.

Car Seat Guide: Pria 85 Max by Maxi Cosi

Of all the decisions we have to make as parents, choosing a good car seat for our child is one of the most important ones we’ll make. In fact, you legally need a car seat from the moment you take your baby home from the hospital until he or she is big enough to safely fit into adult seat belts. Up until recently, this requirement would have most parents spending hundreds of dollars on infant carriers, convertible car seats, and boosters. But what if you could buy one car seat that would fit your child for as long as they needed to be in a car seat?

Today we’ll look at Maxi-Cosi’s Pria 85 Max and how it is changing the way we approach car seat safety from 5 to 85 lbs.

The Comprehensive Guide to Choosing a Car Seat

If you’re a parent to young kids, you know that car seat guidelines have changed dramatically in recent years. So much so, in fact, that what you followed for your oldest may be different from what you’re currently doing with your youngest!

Sorting through the laws and recommendations is overwhelming enough, but then there’s confusing, often conflicting, data regarding:

  • Rear-facing versus forward-facing seats
  • Infant versus convertible seats, and
  • Five-point harnesses, booster seats and seat belts.

With so much information out there, it can make you just want to clip your babe in the Ergo, and hoof it everywhere. But you don’t have to do that! Behold: your comprehensive guide to choosing a car seat.

Did you know that September 13th-19th is known across the United States as Child Passenger Safety Week? Daily Mom is a huge advocate for practicing extended rear-facing for as long as possible. Please be sure to refer to our post on Rear-Facing: Just The Facts.

Gear Guide: Doona by Simple Parenting – The Next Generation Car Seat

Your baby is naturally most comfortable in your arms. In fact, they may be so comfortable, that you find that the only way you can get anything done is by “wearing” your baby. However, doctors typically recommend that babies sleep lying flat on their back, to allow baby’s body to freely move; and encourage bone and muscle development. Furthermore, if you’re driving (or even just riding in the car), it just isn’t safe or legal to baby-wear. 

So, you buy an infant car seat to safely secure and restrain your baby while in transit. Then, you buy a stroller because who really wants to lug that car seat around whenever you get to your destination. But what if you could buy one piece of baby gear that offers a safe, practical and comfortable solution for carrying your baby inside and outside of the car? Doona was designed to do just that! 

Is it a car seat? Is it a stroller? It’s both! Doona is the world’s first infant car seat with a complete and fully integrated mobility solution designed for infants 4-34 lbs.
