✈️ Traveling is such an adventure and even more so when you travel with kids. And the prospect of traveling with your children can seem very daunting. We've all seen it — perhaps we've been it — the frazzled mom, the frustrated dad and the screaming child. Another common site at airports around the world: the mom carrying a baby in one arm with a diaper bag in the other, while dad is rushing alongside carrying a car seat over one shoulder and another child over the other with a booster seat in hand. To a lot of parents, just the thought of traveling with their children makes them want to stay home. Read some tips to Travel with Kids with Less Stress just in time for the holiday travel season...

Sunday #StateCarSeatLaw#TEXAS While the Texas Department of Public Safety often uses the language “booster seat” in their description of the law for “booster”- age children, the actual complete child seat law states as follows: • Any child younger than 8 years of age must be secured in a child passenger safety seat system according to the instructions of the manufacturer of the safety seat system. Paragraph number f1 describes “child passenger safety seat system” as an infant or child passenger restraint system that meets the federal standards for crash-tested restraint systems as set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. • In such a case as a child is under 8 years of age but at least four feet and nine inches in height, the child may use the vehicle seat belt.

❤️ if you went on a baby moon before the birth of your first child or if you are planning one. Do share where you went too if you would. Many people want to take a last romantic trip during pregnancy. Pregnancy can be a good time to travel. You don't have to worry about an extra seat or bringing all the baby gear. It's just you two and the love between you that created the baby. Most recommend traveling during your second trimester to avoid any restrictions and while you are still feeling comfortable. There are some things to remember if your baby moon entails a flight.

Sunday #StateCarSeatLaw#TENNESSEE • Children under the age of 1 or weighing 20 pounds or less shall properly use a federally approved child passenger restraint system in a rear-facing position in a rear seat. • Children ages 1 to 3 and weighing more than 20 pounds shall properly use a federally approved child passenger restraint system in a forward-facing position in the rear seat. • Children ages 4 to 8 and measuring less than 4’9″ shall be properly restraint in a federally approved belt-positioning booster seat system in the rear seat. • If a child is not capable of being safely transported in a conventional child passenger restraint system a specially modified, professionally manufactured restraint (like the RideSafer) meeting the intent of this subsection can be used assuming the vehicle’s seat belt would not suffice. In such a case, a copy of a physician’s signed prescription for such a device must be available to be presented to law enforcement.

Sunday #StateCarSeatLaw#SOUTHDAKOTA • Children under 5 years of age shall be properly secured in a federally approved child restraint system according to manufacturer’s instructions. • The requirements of this section are met if the child is under 5 years of age and at least 40 pounds by securing the child in a seat belt. (SR4K notes: This is by NO means best practice. Most children should remain in some sort of child restraint until a much older age. Children typically don’t safely fit a vehicle’s seat belt until somewhere between 8 and 12 years old, most importantly when they reach 4’9″.) • Children between the ages of 5 and 18 must wear a properly adjusted seat belt.

Are your children at the age where they are carpooling with friends or teammates? 🚙 You know that your child is as safe as can be in the backseat of your car. But what about other cars. While you can choose who your child rides with and take as many other precautions as possible, like installing your child's car seat in their car yourself, there are some risks you simply cannot control. 🚒 Did you ever consider your legal rights if your child was injured while riding in someone else's car? It likely won't be your first thought if your child is injured, but who is at fault and who will take responsibility? Who's insurance will pay? These are questions that may eventually be brought up.

Topic of the Day: Seat Belt Safety The National Highway Traffic Safety Admin.(NHTSA) recommends that pregnant moms wear the lap belt of a seat belt below the belly with the shoulder belt crossing the chest. However, they also recognize that wearing the seat belt in this way does not offer optimum protection as the pregnant woman and does not shield the baby from potential injury from the seat belt itself. Luckily, the Tummy Shield redirects the seat belt completely away from the pregnancy, but it is categorized as an “unregulated product”. Seat belts do not have to pass any pregnancy-related safety standards, making the use of this product totally up to moms. If you are pregnant or looking to become pregnant, prenatal education is key.

We learned something new yesterday and research released today confirms it... 👮‍♂️ Is it Legally required to use a Car Seat when Ride Sharing with kids? Depends on the state and turns out it may not be in many states. That said taxi, ride share, grandma's car, your car all have a chance of being in a crash. Reduce the risk and use a car seat for children for ALL drives. Read more and find out what's allowed in your state.

Sunday #StateCarSeatLaw#Oregon (ORS 811.210(2)) • Children must remain in a rear-facing child restraint until they are two years of age, regardless of weight, or if a child is older than two but weighs 20 pounds or less. • Children who weigh 40 pounds or less must be properly secured with a child safety system that meets the minimum standards and specifications established by the Department of Transportation under ORS 815.055 [which simply describes child restraint systems which meet FMVSS 213 standards] for child safety systems designed for children weighing 40 pounds or less. • Children who weigh more than 40 pounds and are 4’9″ or shorter must be properly secured with a child safety system that elevates the person so that a safety belt or safety harness properly fits the person. As used in this paragraph, “properly fits” means the lap belt of the safety belt or safety harness is positioned low across the thighs and the shoulder belt is positioned over the collarbone and away from the neck. • Unless the rear seat of the vehicle is not equipped with lap-shoulder belts, then the child may be secured with a lap belt • OR if the child is properly secured with a child safety system that meets ORS 815.055 (see above) for children weighing more than 40 pounds. • Children who are taller than 4’9″ OR 8 years of age must be properly secured with a safety belt or safety harness.

If you haven't seen or heard Taylor's story and you know anyone who is pregnant, you need to watch and share this video. Taylor lost her first baby during a moderate car crash when she was 35 weeks pregnant. She was in the passenger seat and the only injury she sustained was a bruise from the seat belt. Her baby, Bailey, on the other hand, received a fatal skull fracture. While much safer to wear a seat belt that not, it does pose some risk. Reduce that risk by using the only highly engineered and crash-tested pregnancy seat belt adjuster, the Tummy Shield. Taylor and Ryan and the team at Safe Ride 4 Kids believe it's highly probable, Baby Bailey would be here today if Taylor had used the Tummy Shield. If only she had known about it before hand. If only her doctors talked to her about the potential risks of driving during pregnancy. Studies show less than half even discuss how to wear the seat belt properly. An estimated 3,000 pregnancies are lost every year in the U.S. from car crashes. Help us prevent as many of those as possible.

"Motor-vehicle injuries are the leading cause of death and hospitalized trauma during pregnancy." (Weiss, 2007) Based on Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System, it is estimated that about 92,500 pregnant women are hurt annually in motor-vehicle crashes in the United States. You would think doctors and pregnancy books would put more emphasis on driving when they talk to pregnant women. But other studies show less than half of doctors brooch the subject.

A review of more than 25 research studies conducted in the past 10 to 20 years indicates driving during pregnancy incurs additional risks to mom and baby, one of which is miscarriage. We’re not saying this to scare you. We just want you to be aware. This particular type of miscarriage may be able to be prevented, at least some of them. The studies show that an estimated 3,000 pregnancies are lost every year due to car crashes.

Last week was CPS (Child Passenger Safety) Week where the focus was on keeping children properly restrained in the car. 🚘 What about the pivotal period of development during pregnancy and keeping those babies safe in the car? 🤰 “The major role that motor vehicle injuries have on reported traumatic fetal injury deaths was shown and a significant new challenge for child passenger safety advocates is indicated.” – Professor Hank Weiss concludes in his 2001 study about pregnancy, car crashes and fetal deaths.

We agree, why don't ALL doctors and midwives tell ALL pregnant women about this? Answer: They don't ALL know about it yet. We are doing what we can to reach out to them. (We do offer a healthcare provider report and kit, if you want to tell your provider and have them reach out to us.) 😉 #becauseitmatters #pregnantdriving #TummyShield #SafeRide4Kids #becauseitmatters #makeeveryarrivalasafearrival #seatbelt #pregnancy #pregnancylife #pregnantstyle #pregnancyandseatbelts #pregnant #maternityseatbelt #saferdrivingduringpregnancy #safetyfirst #carprotection #TummyShield

Did you know? Pregnant or new parent, everyone has an equal chance of being in a car crash. You would NEVER think about driving with your newborn without a car seat.

Sunday #StateCarSeatLaw#NewYork (SECTION 1229-C(1), NYS VEHICLE & TRAFFIC LAW [ALSO VAT ART 33 SECTION 1229-C]) • Children must remain in an appropriate child restraint system until the age of eight (8). An appropriate child restraint system is one that meets the child’s size and weight and the specifications of the manufacturer of such system. A child restraint system may be a child safety seat, harness, vest or a booster seat. SR4K note: This describes the intent of the law and indicates RideSafer is legal in New York. >> Read the specifics... Click the link in our bio, go to "blog" then choose "state laws". • Taxis and public transportation buses are exempt from occupant restraint law. However, it is recommended, especially in taxis, to use an appropriate child restraint. SR4K note: the RideSafer is a terrific, light-weight, easy-to-use choice for children who travel in taxis or car services starting at age 3. • Children under the age of four must be restrained in a federally approved car seat while riding on a school bus. We post a different state's law every Sunday to bring awareness specifically to the laws as they are written. These laws also are listed on our website. #CPSWeek2018 #SafeRide4Kids #carseatsafety #becauseitmatters #makeeveryarrivalasafearrival #carseat #childcare #childsafety #RideSafer #harness #seatbelt #seatbeltharness #ridesafe #childcarseat #safety #safetyfirst #safetyriding #carprotection #harnesses #auto #preventative #rides #ridesmart #children

Big kids need to be protected in the car too! Shocking results of a study show 7 in 10 parents don’t know when to move their child from booster seats to just the vehicle seat belt. Using a child restraint, such as a RideSafer vest or a booster seat for big kids, can reduce the risk of serious injury by 45% compared to the seat belt alone.

Unfortunately, this trend has not reversed. I know how hard it is when kids argue and whine. I understand that sometimes we, as parents, really get overwhelmed and confused by some of the information out there. I know that "you never" and "you were fine." But there are many who were not. Kids need to be in booster seats until they are AT LEAST 4'9" and about 10-12 years of age, on average. Boosters can be found for as little as $10--but their value can be priceless. #carseatsafety #boosterseatssavelives #boostersareforbigkids #backseatuntil13 #boostersftw #supercarseatgeek #saferide4kids

Tip of the week: Keep those older children buckled properly too. Seat belts in automobiles are, by design, intended for adult-sized people. After a child outgrows the forward-facing car seat by height or weight, they will move into a belt-positioning device like a booster seat or RideSafer vest. #carseatsafety #CPSWeek2018 coming up soon #becauseitmatters #SafeRide4Kids #carseatsafety #becauseitmatters #makeeveryarrivalasafearrival #carseat #childcare #childsafety #RideSafer #harness #seatbelt #seatbeltharness #ridesafe #childcarseat #safety #safetyfirst #safetyriding #carprotection #harnesses #auto #preventative #rides #ridesmart #children

People designed early car seats simply to lift the child to allow him to look out the window and to keep the child more or less in one spot in the car. Originally "child seats" started out as nothing more than burlap sacks with a drawstring that hung over the headrest on the passenger’s seat.
