The Car Seat Hack All Parents Need to Know in Case of an Emergency
Car accidents are terrifying — but they're even more terrifying when your kids are in the backseat. If there ever comes a time when you can't get to your little ones in an emergency situation, here's a simple way to help them out before the situation occurs.
One mom, Alexis Copas, took to Twitter to share the safety tip after spotting it on Facebook, urging parents to write out important information about their children and stick it to their car seats. She suggests including their full name, date of birth, parents' names, emergency contacts, medications, medical conditions, and anything else first responders might need to know to come to your child's rescue if you're unable to.
“This helps EMS a ton," the post read. "And it can also help save your child’s life.”
According to the CDC, motor vehicle injuries are a leading cause of death among children in the U.S. But by using a top-rated car seat and providing as much information as possible through a simple note like Copas's, lives could be saved.
Since Copas posted her advice March 4, other parents have thanked her for sharing, adding that they'll be writing notes for their kids' car seats too.
Here's hoping every parent with a young child follows their lead.
