Palm Desert, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2007

Baby Dagny, your destination for just cool baby stuff, introduces two revolutionary mom-invented products to the U.S. market. Both the Seat Chiller, a car seat cooler for kids and UV Summer Wrap, are designed to protect a baby’s delicate skin from scorching summer temperatures and harmful UV rays.

The Seat Chiller is designed to dramatically cool off child car seats and forever eliminate a child’s risk of burned skin from car seat buckles and the uncomfortable conditions of a hot seat. According to a study conducted by the Stanford School of Medicine, a car’s interior can heat up surprisingly fast, regardless of the outside temperature. On a typical July day in Chicago, a parked car can reach 124

Retailer WhatSheBuys Adds New Britax Frontier Car Seat


San Gabriel, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2008

WhatSheBuys, a specialty boutique retailer featuring world-class, best-of-category brands for her, him and child, announced that it has added the new innovative Britax Frontier Car Seat, a combination 5 point harness car seat and booster, to its best-of-category selection for car seats. WhatSheBuys became an authorized retailer of Britax Car Seats in 2006 and has now added the new Britax Frontier model to its offerings.

The new Frontier model is considered a combination booster youth car seat that combines a forward facing 5-point harness car seat for children up to 80 lbs and 53 inches with a belt positioning booster for children up to 100 lbs and 60 inches. This model continues an important push to keep children safe in a 5-point harness car seat as long as possible. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 1 through 14. Diligence has resulted in a higher rate of infants and toddlers in car seats and consequently lower death rates due to car accidents in the 0 to 3 age group. The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia research conducted in 2002 concluded that only 16% of 4 to 7 year olds were using a car seat or booster. Child safety advocates have been trying to educate the public on the benefits of using a seat belt, booster or car seat for the 4 to 7 year old group. The success of the 5-point harness Britax Regent Youth Car Seat and the release of the new Britax Frontier combination seat further emphasize the trend to improve child car safety for this age group by using a 5-point car seat.

“We are very pleased to offer the new Britax Frontier combination seat because it focuses on the 4 to 7 year old segment”, states Cathy Kamimura, Chief Buyer at WhatSheBuys. “Sadly, we become aware that a child was killed or seriously injured in an accident through our sales. Shortly after news hits, our sales of Britax Regent car seats spike as parents research the best 5-point car seat for bigger kids. The new Frontier offers the same 5-point harness, but also has side impact protection and converts to a booster for children up to 100 lbs and 60 inches.”

Kamimura reports that initial sales of the Britax Frontier are very strong and have beaten expectations.

Sir Alex Ferguson Signs Up to AA Child Seat Safety Campaign


Basingstoke, Hampshire (PRWEB) June 26, 2009

Sir Alex Ferguson CBE is backing an AA campaign supported by Britax and Mothercare this summer, urging parents to get their child car seats checked and to ensure that their children are properly belted up. This is all the more important as new AA research shows that the economic downturn means that 50% more people will holiday in the UK this summer1. With two thirds of child seats in the UK not fitted securely2, the summer holiday could be an accident waiting to happen.

Sir Alex is lending his support to the campaign which launches during Child Safety Week (22-26 June), to raise parents’ awareness of the importance of having the right car seat securely fitted, and the right seat for a child’s age and height. This follows his grandson’s recent experience in a road accident; 10 year old Charlie had to undergo surgery back in May, when he was injured due to not being properly protected during a car collision.

The latest research from the AA’s Road Safety team suggests that August is the worst month for death and serious injuries to children in vehicles, which is why Britax, a leading car seat manufacturer, has teamed up with the AA and Mothercare to launch a nationwide roadshow offering parents expert advice and hands on guidance on how to choose and fir the right car seat. The roadshow launches on Monday 22 June, in time for people to make sure they know how to choose and fit their children’s car seats properly, before they hit the roads during the summer holidays.

The need for the roadshow has also been highlighted by recent research that over 20 children under 11 are killed and over 600 seriously injured a year while travelling in cars3.

Sir Alex Ferguson CBE said, “I urge all parents and children to pay attention to using and fixing their seat belts properly, over the shoulder as it should be. This can save your Life.”

Edmund King, AA president said: “Sir Alex is absolutely right that it is imperative for all children to be properly belted up in the back. The AA Populus poll of 16,500 respondents showed that 83% are not aware of legislation requiring children to use the appropriate restraint or child seat. Modern seat belts are not uncomfortable so parents or drivers need to ensure that children are appropriately belted up. It can be a matter of life or death.”

Mark Bennett from Britax said: “With so many families hitting the UK roads for their summer holidays this year, the correct fitting of children’s car seats is of paramount importance. We find it extremely alarming how many people are unaware that their car seats are fitted incorrectly, and are delighted to be working with Mothercare and the AA to help parents, and educate them on the solutions available before they embark on their road trips this summer.”

Liz day, parenting consultant at Mothercare said: “At Mothercare, the safety of children is our number one priority. As one of the UK’s leading retailers of car seats we strongly advise all parents to ensure their car seats are suitable for their child and fitted correctly and offer demonstrations and advice in our stores. This roadshow event brings together the specialist expertise of Mothercare, Britax and the AA to promote the safety of children in cars.”

The roadshow will take place outside Mothercare stores in 11 UK locations4 2, where Britax and AA car breakdown cover patrols will be offering demonstrations of the car seats showing ISOFIX safety systems on Britax AA ISOFIX child car seats, showing just how easy and safe the ISOFIX system is. The system eliminates misfitting problems, which are common with the use of adult belts, and improve the dynamic performance of child restraints, as the seat is rigidly attached to the car structure. The vast majority of new car models since 2006 (and several previous models) have ISOFIX installed as standard.

Travel Insured Urges Families to Exercise Options to Costly Drive Vacations with Airfare Sales, Free Child Seat Check-ins and Kids Free Trip Insurance


East Hartford, CT (PRWEB) June 15, 2011

The flying family vacation with young children is alive this summer as an alternative to high gas prices for tiring, lengthy car trips. Parents can find airfare sales extending through the high travel season in a slumbering economy. Family travel planners should visit online fare tracking sites, such as Airfarewatchdog and SmarterTravel, to find recurring summer airfare deals from competing carriers with sale names such as “Cheeps,” “Click ‘n Save” “The Sand in Your Suit Sale,” and others offering limited-time booking deals for 2011 summer and fall travel. Registering for fare alerts allows you to receive automatic email notices for your desired destination as each fare sale becomes available.

Parents planning to rent a car can save money and hassles by bringing child car seats and non-bulky strollers on flights without paying baggage fees for child items on most airlines. Some carriers allow seats to be carried on for children to use during flights. Others allow items, if not bulky, to be gate checked after being used to reach boarding gate waiting areas. Parents also skip the cost of renting a child car seat from a rental car company in their destination at prices of about $ 10 to $ 15 per seat per day.

As the ONLY child restraint device on the market specifically designed to accommodate most casts, the Hippo Special Needs Car Seat helps to ensure that these fragile children are transported securely restrained and protected from additional trauma.

The Hippo’s 5-Point restraint harness with a one-pull harness strap adjuster allows for an easy, secure fit every time, and the wedge positioning system and washable nylon cover make this car seat ideal for utilization by multiple children in loaner programs. We are proud to introduce more consumers to the BRITAX Hippo Special Needs Car Seat from Snug Seat, said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart.

Breastfeeding Clothes and Lilypads Seat Covers Help Keep Babies Healthy During Cold Season

Pickering, Ontario (PRWEB) January 9, 2006

Cold and flu season can be deadly to a baby. Concerned parents can help protect their babies against illness by breastfeeding because mothers antibodies, and their protective effects, pass through breastmilk to the baby. Canada-based Breast Is Best offers functional but stylish breastfeeding clothes for mother while she breastfeeds, keeping mom happy. Breast Is Best also sells LilyPads seat covers to keep baby healthy while running errands or dining out. Nursing wear and LilyPads seat covers are available at http://www.Breast-Is-Best.com.

With very immature immune systems, babies cant ward off or fight viruses easily, and if babies catch the flu, they have a harder time coping with it. According to the Canadian Paediatric Society, breastmilk is the optimal food for babies, providing infants with nutritional, immunological and emotional benefits for healthy growth and development. The Society recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life for healthy, term infants, with continuation of breastfeeding for up to two years and beyond. The CPS recommendation is consistent with that from the World Health Organization, Health Canada and the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Breast Is Best Co-Owner Niki Leslie designs the breastfeeding tops, offering six or more new styles every year. For winter, there are several long-sleeve shirts and blouses including microfleece V-necks available in several different colors. After the birth of our daughter eleven years ago, I looked for affordable yet fashionable breastfeeding clothes, but found a very limited selection. As a result, we created Breast Is Best Clothing for Nursing Mothers, states Leslie.

To complement the functional breastfeeding clothes, Breast Is Best carries LilyPads seat covers giving parents assurance that their baby or young child is in a clean environment when shopping or dining out. Designed for children ages 5 months and up to 4 years, machine washable LilyPads covers are available in several different fabrics, are easily attached or removed by elastic fittings, and fold up into their own tote bags. We take our LilyPads seat cover everywhere. It adds warmth, safety and fun to any seating arrangement, Breast Is Best Co-Owner Doug Leslie comments.

Breast Is Best Clothing for Nursing Mothers is celebrating its eleventh year in business, offering its own line of nursing wear. They also carry high-quality breast pumps, baby slings, and LilyPads seat covers. Visit them at http://www.breast-is-best.com or call toll-free 1-877-837-5439.

Inventor and InventHelp Client Develops Improved Car Seat (JMC-1206)


Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 26, 2013

“Busy parents have a lot on their minds, which is why you see news reports every summer about children dying because they’re left alone in cars,” said an inventor from Burley, Idaho. “To protect innocent children, I came up with this idea.”

He developed the CAR SEAT WITH CLIMATE CONTROL & ALARM to keep the child cool during the summer months in order to protect against hyperthermia. The unit also reminds parents that the child is in the vehicle, which prevents the child from being left in a vehicle unattended. The seat is designed to enhance the child’s safety. In addition, the device provides added peace of mind to parents and caregivers, and it is usable in any vehicle.

The original design was submitted to the Telemarketing office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers. For more information, write Dept. 12-JMC-1206, InventHelp, 217 Ninth Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, or call (412) 288-1300 ext. 1368.

Keeping Kids Safe: North Shore-LIJ Trains Nassau Police and Youth Explorers in Car Seat Safety


New Hyde Park, NY (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

The North Shore-LIJ Health System today announced that 16 Nassau County Police Department (NCPD) young adult Explorers were among the latest group of community members taught by North Shore-LIJ Health System instructors to properly install car seats.

Car crashes are the biggest killer of American children up to 12-years-old, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Using the correct car seats and restraints for kids can help save their lives and prevent injuries. The North Shore-LIJ Health Systems child passenger safety instructors have been offering child seat safety classes in the community for the past 15 years and host car-seat inspections on Long Island.

During the three-day car seat safety training, 16 NCPD Explorers, volunteers between the ages of 18 and 21, as well as four NCPD personnel, two Town of Hempstead park rangers, two Brookhaven Safety Town educators and a nurse from Nassau University Medical Center learned about the correct car seats to use for children of various ages, heights and weights, as well as how to properly install the car seats. The training took place at Hassel Auto Body in West Babylon for 30 hours over three days in June with the help of a grant from Safe Kids and the New York State Governors Traffic Safety Commission.

Debora Riccardi, DNP, Steven and Alexandra Cohen Childrens Medical Center director of community outreach, said the key to keeping kids safe in a car is not only instructing parents about the correct seat for their child now, but also how to properly restrain them in the future. Dr. Riccardi presented the training session along with two community health nurse educators — Joann Stiehl, RN, a child passenger safety instructor and special needs technician, and Daina Shaw, RN, a child passenger safety instructor. Additional child passenger safety instructors from Long Island also assisted with the training.

These newly trained people will be going out into their communities and helping to educate people about how to properly restrain and protect their children in a car, Dr. Riccardi said. This will reinforce the training that we already provide and help it to spread further. And in the case of the Nassau County Police Department Explorers, these young people may choose to become police officers in the future, so this training could help families for years to come.

Nassau County Police Officer Dan Johannessen, who leads the Explorers program, said of the car seat training, I strongly believe in the benefits this training has for the community and Im grateful to the North Shore-LIJ Health System and Debora Riccardi for making this possible.

Through a grant from Safe Kids and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Cohen Childrens Medical Center has been offering classes to the community about child seat safety for about 15 years.

There are free car seat evaluation events through the year at North Shore-LIJ facilities and other places in Nassau, Suffolk, Queens and the Bronx. Car seat checks will be done at Cohen Childrens Medical Center on Oct. 14 and Nov. 3.
