Buckling up, even in a stroller

One young Attleboro mother apparently took the time to strap her baby boy into his stroller in such a way that when a car struck the pair last week in Attleboro, he remained snug as his seat rolled over a couple of times.

Stacy Wetherell and her baby, who is a year old, were treated at hospitals and released. Jacob, officials said, suffered cuts to his cheek.

Who knows what could have happened had Ms. Wetherell not, prior to the outing, bent over her baby, tucking and buckling, just so.The outcome sets an example for other parents. Sometimes a walk on a pretty day can be shattered by the unexpected. Attention to detail is critical.Education on child seat safety usually focuses on cars. Consumer Reports last week had to admit, red-faced, that its alerts on reliability of certain models may have been in error and re-testing is slated.

Hope they are fine now.We should always be careful when travelling.One good tip to follow is "Rear-facing infant carriers must not be used on a front-passenger seat where a passenger airbag is fitted. The close proximity of the restraint to the airbag could result in a severe injury or death to the child if the bag inflates".

I started using an umbrella stroller at 3 months but I could of started earlier. Zellers (in Canada) sells really nice 5 point harness reclining umbrella stroller for little babies.Its super light and easy to take anywhere.

There are so many considerations in choosing the baby stroller, such as the safety, the comfort, the effectiveness, and many others. Of course, the durability should also be consider. Choose the one with heavy duty wheels for it to last longer.
