Imagine being a new parent – perhaps young, perhaps without a support system, perhaps unable to care for your newborn due to circumstances outside of your control. You’ve tried all you can, yet the stress and demands are too great and it’s just too much. You need immediate relief, but what can you do?
There are thousands of nerve-wracking things about being a new mom. You have an endless list of questions that runs through your head during any given day or hour that can be overwhelming. “Is my baby eating enough? Is he overtired? Is this smell normal?”
Perhaps one of the greatest concerns a new mom, or any parent for that matter, faces when it comes to their child is the question of vehicle safety. Since road crashes are the ninth leading cause of death in the U.S., it’s no wonder parents may feel apprehensive about keeping their children safe in the car. Following the below guidelines on child passenger safety can help to both minimize the likelihood of an accident while increasing the chances that, even if an accident occurs, your little one will remain safe.
