Air Bags and Kids. When combined with safety belts, air bags protect adults and teens from injury during a collision. They have saved lives and prevented many serious injuries. But infants and children can be injured or even killed if they are riding in the front passenger seat when an air bag opens. Air bags were designed with adults in mind: They must open with great force (up to 200 miles per hour) to protect an average-sized, 165-pound (75-kilogram) male from injury. While this force is appropriate for adults and bigger kids, it can be dangerous for small children, possibly resulting in head and neck injuries.
Infant-Only Seats (Birth to 22-35 Pounds). Infant-only seats fit newborns and smaller infants best, so you will have to buy another seat as your baby outgrows it. Infant-only seats are designed to protect babies from birth until they reach up to 35 pounds (about 16 kilograms), depending on the model. Infant car seats should always be installed to face the rear of the car. A small child is much less likely to die or be seriously injured when in a rear-facing seat. That's because the back of the safety seat will cradle the baby's head, neck, and torso in a crash (at this age, a child′s neck usually isn′t strong enough to support the head in a crash).
The most important basic features to look for in a high chair include a t-strap or five-point restraining seat belt (a lap tray is not enough to keep a busy baby secure), and a crotch post or passive crotch restraint, to keep baby from slipping out of the seat. You‵ll also want to be sure your high chair is durable enough to stand up to daily use, and easy to clean, with no grooves or crevices to trap spills. Always make sure baby is buckled up. Your high chair should have, at the minimum, a T-style strap that goes across baby’s lap and through her legs and connects in the middle for a snug, secure fit. Curious little ones have been known to go exploring-and that can be dangerous. And just attaching the lap table is not enough to make sure baby’s secure.
The 4-pack of OXO Tot Glass Baby Blocks is our favorite storage system for baby food. We prefer glass, as it mitigates the risk of leaching chemicals that may occur from plastic containers. The OXO`s chunky, durable body is made of borosilicate glass which reduces the risk of breakage due to sudden temperature change going from freezer storage to immediate warming. The 4-ounce portion sizes are a perfect size for an infant feeding portion of solids and there are volume measurements on the side of the container to easily keep track of how much baby has eaten. The included freezer tray makes the system store nicely and silicone sleeves and leak proof snap-on plastic lids make for easy on the go baby meals straight from the freezer to a diaper bag.
