  • Safety 1st - Eddie Bauer Carseat Giveaway!!! Choose 1 of 3 carseats!

    *Disclaimer - Eddie Bauer is sponsoring a giveaway for 1 of 3 awesome carseats for the September carseat safety month event!! I am hosting this giveaway and am not being compensated in any way.

    Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children age 1 through 12 years old.  Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the goal of Child Passenger Safety week is to make sure all parents and caregivers are properly securing their children (ages 0-12) in the best car restraint (rear-facing, forward-facing, booster, seat belt) for their age and size. 

    The Elite 80 works in rear-facing mode for babies up to 40 pounds, then converts to forward-facing with harness, but features an extended weight range to keep children safely in harness all the way to 80 pounds.  In its 3rd mode, the Elite 80 goes beyond the traditional convertible seat to convert into a belt-positioning booster car seat for children up to 100 pounds.  Additionally Air Protect +combines the advanced protection of our Air Protect® cushion system with patented GCell HX™ foam designed with hexagonal shapes for 100% full body production.

    This convertible car seat was inspired by race car drivers. Air Protect+ combines Safety 1st Air Protect® Technology with GCell HX™ - hexagonal rebounding foam used in the body of the car seat to protect the child from the multiple hits that occur in crashes. Coupled with this is the placement of Air Protect® Technology which takes crash forces away from a child’s head.  This technology was developed in partnership with racecar engineers at Bald Spot Sports and INDY Car Driver Scott Dixon to better understand the energy dynamics a high performance driver faces in the event of a crash. 

    The BoostAPak is designed to help keep kids in boosters longer, as it’s often hard to get an older child to stay in his or her booster seat. This booster seat also doubles as a backpack!  For children 4 to 7 years old, booster seats reduce injury risk by 59% compared to seat belts alone. (Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia).  Additionally, the AAP recommends children ride in boosters until the age of 12 or 57 inches; but only 13% of children 54-56 inches tall ride on one (NHTSA)

    4. Do you research and make sure you follow the instructions. Don't settle! Never use an old carseat unless you know for sure it isn't expired. REAR FACE for at least a year hopefully 2 !

    6. Call ahead to be sure this is available in your area:
      If you are unsure whether you are installing the car seat correctly, go to your local police or fire station. In some towns they have events (on Grandparents Day, child safety day, ...) in other areas you need to make an appointment.
      Best to be sure it is done properly, and have that peace of mind.

    13. Have your seat checked by professionals! Even though you THINK you did it right and everything is good, local police, hospitals and doctor's offices offer to check the seats for free. So please, get yours checked! I've seen way too many installed incorrectly in my years as an EMT.

    28. The most important piece of information an expecting parent needs - is to contact a local CPST to help! Car seat safety can be very complicated and confusing - contacting a professional can keep your child safe, since it's our specialty!

    29. I would have to say check safety ratings, and find one that is the correct size! I know our police station will check if your carseat is installed correctly! Some can be so hard to get installed correctly! And easy install car seat is the way to go if you can!
