Car Seat Safety Tips

Car Seat Safety Tips


BabySupermarket’s word of the week is Car Seat.

Car seats are a must have when you have a baby.  You can not leave the hospital with a baby unless you have one.  Do you know when car seats were invented?  Car Seats actually  started being manufactured in the 1930’s, but the purpose was not for safety merely for boosting the child up so the driver could see them when riding in the car.  It wasn’t until the 1960’s that car seats were manufactured with the safety of the child in mind.

Early Car Seat Designs In 1962, two different designed car seats appeared.  One in the U.S., which was designed by  an Aurora, Colorado business owner Lenard Rivikin and the other  by Jean Ames of  Britain  who designed a rear-facing car seat.  Lenard Rivkin decided after a minor crash,  which sent  his 3 year told to the dash-board of his car that canvas sacks hanging over the  passenger  seat of the car just were no longer safe.  He derived his design from a L shaped  steel seat  that kept the child buckled in.  Ames had a little different idea with his design, which was a rear-facing seat that had a Y-shaped strapping system.

Both of these designers helped bring to life to a problem and gave birth to a solution.  Now in the U.S. there are laws dealing with child safety restraints in cars.  There are over 100 different car seats on the market today.  All offering different features to keeping your bundle of joy safe.

Things to keep in mind when shopping for one is the age and weight of your child, the safety of the seat, and which seat best fits your child.   The safest seat is not only the seat that fits your child but fits your car.  These factors are never considered when researching the purchase of your car seat.   Buying used car seats are frowned upon in the retail world.  Reasons are all child safety seats have an expiration date, car seats that have been involved in car accidents are unstable and some manufactured car seat have been recalled.  Be aware of those things when buying a used car seat.  Remember the car seat is what you are relying on to carry your precious cargo in the car make sure it is the right seat for you child and it is properly installed.  If you have questions call your nearest retail store or come by to visit their trained specialist.


We are Thankful

Today is Thanksgiving Day and we wanted to take a quick second to share what we are thankful for.  You have seen it on Facebook; the days of thankfulness where you share each day what you are thankful for, but we can sum it up with one. We are thankful for our customers.

Being a baby and toy store we share all the special moments with our customers.   We are there when our customers first walk in the doors with news that they are expecting.  We assist our customers and show them all their options in purchasing a crib, rocker, bedding and nursery decor.  We laugh with them when they come in to registering for strollers, car seats, bottles and other baby needs that they didn’t know they needed.   We are right there at the moment when baby arrives and dad is running by to get last-minute items on the way home from the hospital.

We have also shared sad times with our customers.  We have held their hands and cried with them when things didn’t work out.  Then we have shared tears of joy when that same family returns expecting again.

Our customers are special to us.  We  have seen them through from birth to when they bring their once babies in to the store to adopt their first Lee Middleton Baby or pick out their first Thomas the Train set.   We have had original BabySupermarket babies come back with their grown up babies to pick out their grandchildren’s nursery items.

Today on Thanksgiving Day, we are thankful for you our customers.  We thank you for letting us share in the most important moments of your life from coming in excited that you are expecting to coming in years later to pick out your first grandchild’s rocking chair for Christmas.  Please take today to be thankful, don’t think about all the hustle and bustle of Black Friday.  Take the full day to enjoy your family.   Then tomorrow at 9:30 come by and see us.  We will be open and ready to help you with all your baby and toy needs.

Happy Thanksgiving from our Babysupermarket Family!

Safer Bumpers created by Nurture Imagination

Bumper pads have been getting a bad rap for a few years.  The experts say don’t use them because they can causeNurture Imagination Company, Nurture Imagination Crib Bedding, Nurture Imagination Air Flow Bumper suffocation, they prevent proper air flow in the crib, and the ties are  choking hazards.  The American Academy of Pediatrics says, “Bare is Best”.   Parents who do still use  bumper pads in the crib say the reason they do is they do not want their newborn to suffer injury    to themselves.  Limbs being caught between the bars of cribs could cause them to dislocate or  break.   This group of parents fully believe in having bumper pads in their baby’s crib and so does a  company called Nurture Imaginations.
