Hidden Holiday Travel Hazards – Safety 1st Giveaway #Safety1st


safety 1st car seat

It’s the time of year that we are most likely to be on the roads. That means making sure you stay safe with baby all winter long.

During the holidays you may be traveling to family or friends homes for parties. Whether you are hosting or you’re a guest at someone’s home, make sure to keep a close eye on your little one. Children are very curious and young children will put almost anything in their mouth. Foods that may be common to your toddler, like grapes or tomatoes, are often left out on low tables during holiday parties and when not cut they can be a choking hazard for young kids.

If you have a baby in an infant car seat make sure he or she is always buckled in – even when not in the car. When surrounded by friends and family you never know who is going to pick up that car seat with a sleeping baby and you do not want to risk your child slipping out.

safety 1st car seat When you’re traveling about make sure you buckle up and keep your kiddos safe. When know our girls are safe because they have a Safety 1st car seat!

The Elite 80 Air +™ 3-in-1 Car Seat features our new Air Protect + to keep children from 5-80 pounds safer during the ride. Air Protect + combines the advanced protection of our Air Protect® cushion system with patented GCell HX™ foam designed with hexagonal shapes for superior protection around the torso. TOGETHER they provide full body side impact protection.

More than just a convertible car seat, the Elite 80 works in rear-facing mode for babies up to 40 pounds, then – like a traditional convertible car seat – converts to forward-facing with harness, but features an extended weight range to keep children safely in harness all the way to 80 pounds. In its 3rd mode, the Elite 80 goes beyond the traditional convertible car seat to convert into a belt-positioning booster for children up to 100 pounds. In short, this three-in-one car seat will carry your little one safely from infant to 100 pounds.

How are you staying safe on the roads this winter?
