SUGGESTIONS FOR KEEPING BABY SAFE IN THE CARS
As a parent safety is so important when driving those little ones. We all research the best cribs and car seats, why not to research our tires too. When driving, our children’s safety is literally in the palm of our hands. When you think about it, a tire’s contact patch is only about the width of our hand. That’s why picking a good set of tires is critical to being safe on the roads. DriveGuard tires from Bridgestone give parents peace of mind. These tires are designed to drive up to 50 miles to safety, after a puncture. Performing when parents need it the most, so you won’t have to worry about being stuck on the side of the road, especially when traveling with an infant or small child.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT THE BEDDING FOR BABIES
Bedding is an essential aspect in setting up a nursery because it provides comfort and safety for the child. My choice is the Respiro Crib Mattress by BabyTrend because it guarantees 100% ventilation. It has open air sides and high-tech breathable mesh that help regulate the baby’s body temperature to prevent overheating and, it’s hypoallergenic. It also has a firm side for newborns and a softer side for toddlers, both of which can be removed and machine washed. A splash mat is also included for use between the mattress and crib support and, it folds for easy storage and travel! It will be available early October at Babies “R” Us.
