Toddler car safety measures

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post but the views are my own.

follow Last month, we had been on a trip to Udaipur. This was our first ever long trip with K. We were all excited and geared up. This was going to be a complete road trip but since we had some changes in plan at the end moment we took the flight while going and retuned via road.

Surviving a car journey with a toddler isn’t easy. But, if you are family like ours who loves road trips and vacations, you got to search some way out.

No I am not writing about how we survived the road trip here. Instead I am going to write about one major mistake we did on a trip.

buy Lyrica dubai One major mistake that we made on our trip was not carrying the car seat. We didn’t carry a car seat as we travelled by flight one way and felt the car seat would be too bulky to carry. Though, I told daddy we should, but he didn’t agree.

Mistakes do happen by all of us. But the important part is learning from mistakes. I learnt from my experience and you too can learn from my experience.

Though we didn’t take the car seat and highly regret it. I would highly recommend taking the car seat for the following reasons

Safety:

No matter how safe you drive or how careful you are while driving. Accidents takes place unexpectedly and what if you have your baby in the car. A car seat is the best possible way to protect a child in an accident. The car seats are designed in such a way that it helps babies to be the safest when accidents happen.

Protection and Comfort:

The car seat is the best possible way to be in a natural position when you travel. A baby may want to nap or relax and the best place for this is the car seat. The cushions and soft paddling give them their much-needed comfort.

Keeping the toddler seated:

 

A toddler just won’t sit at one place in any way, anywhere forget cars. A car seat is of much help when we have toddler, full of energy. A car seat makes them comfortable and seated and everyone around can be at peace. Though to survive the car seat also you will need some snacks and play

Comfort to parents:

As a parent when the baby is in your lap throughout the journey, which is anyway not recommended will lead to aches. With the help of the car seat both the baby and parents are comfortable.
