A Car Seat for Your New Baby

Carseat

The hospital will require your newborn baby to be brought home in a car seat. This is because the number one cause of death for children in the US is car accidents. Buckling your baby in his car seat is a life-saving habit. If you do it every single time you get in the car, you won't feel right if you forget. That's what a good habit is, one that won't let you forget something that is vital. PLEASE do it — every time.
