It amazes me that my parents were even using a car seat in the very early 80s, because it was not a common baby item yet at that point. In fact, my mom tells me that I spent most of my early road trips on a small crib mattress that was laid out on the back seat of our giant Oldsmobile.

Retro Baby Walker

Tue, 20 May 2014 18:45:41 +00002014-05-20T18:45:41Z

(image) Wow! Take a look at this awesome baby walker from several decades ago! My friend Lianne notes that although this type of walker looks cool and spaceship-esque, it's now illegal in Canada (and the U.S.) because it doesn't meet current safety standards. Her brother sure seemed to enjoy it back then, though.

Recently on social media sites, I've seen images shared that show Nap Nanny recliners being used, or just sitting in a play area near a baby.

Most people don't consider their window blinds to be baby products, but if you've got window coverings in your home that have cords of any sort, you'll want to pay attention to this new round of recalls. Several styles of window blinds have been recalled recently because babies or small children can become entangled in exposed cords, which poses a strangulation hazard.

Flying Objects: Baby's Supplies Pose Danger in a Crash

Tue, 13 May 2014 08:47:59 +00002014-05-13T08:47:59Z

No hard objects in the car with the kids - it's the one rule of child passenger safety that I see consistently ignored, even among my CPST friends. I'll admit I do it, too, often opting for the convenience of leaving my over-filled diaper bag on the passenger seat instead of stashing it safely in the trunk. The issue of projectiles, anything that flies around the interior of your car during a crash, is covered in CPST training, and many techs mention it to parents at checklane events. We know it's potentially dangerous to be hit in the head with a wallet, a library book, or that really big camera you bought to capture your kids' summer activities. That information doesn't often sink in, though. At least until you read this child's story.

Reader Question: Do Car Seats Expire?

Mon, 12 May 2014 20:34:18 +00002014-05-12T20:34:18Z

Q: I have a used car seat that is in great condition. The cover even looks new. I listed this car seat on my local Freecycle group, and now I'm getting emails from people who say that the car seat is expired and is dangerous and should be destroyed. I bought the car seat 7 years ago. I wouldn't sell it if it was obviously dangerous, but I don't see how a car seat in perfectly good condition should be thrown away.

Wed, 30 Apr 2014 21:25:44 +00002014-04-30T21:25:44Z

(image) Gone are the days when baby spent a day at the pool or beach with a soggy, droopy disposable diaper weighing her down. Swim diapers give baby more freedom and flexibility, but the cost can add up quickly for parents. If you'll be hitting the water with baby a lot this summer, you may want to try re-usable swim diapers. Several manufacturers make a re-usable swim diaper, so you can find one that best fits your baby. Happy swimming!
