You can now forget those long naps in the car!
When both of my children were little, more often than not they would end up falling asleep in their car seats, especially if we were running errands during their nap time. I actually found it quite convenient for them to fall asleep in their car seats as it made it easier for me to carry them into their cribs at the time without all the fussing and struggling that usually came before nap time. And I’m sure a lot of parents would agree, as there’s plenty that I know who have done the same thing over and over again. In fact, I’ve even heard of parents who could only get their babies to nap unless they took a ride in their car first!
But, a new serious warning is reminding parents just how dangerous that can be and I’m shocked.
There’s new research that suggests allowing babies to sleep in their car seats might be putting them in serious risk.
