A newborn baby is one of the greatest joys any couple can have in their lives and no doubt you’ll want to show off your newborn to as many people as possible. But taking your baby home from the hospital, off to see the grandparents or even visits to the clinic will result in a certain amount of danger. So ensuring your newborn is safe on the road is crucial.
Ways to ensure your newborn is not another road traffic accident victim by ensuring your newborn is safe on the road
For the first few weeks of their life you’ll probably not want your new baby to leave your side. But when you are taking baby out in the car you should always make sure they are as safe as possible. Here are a few things that you can towards ensuring your newborn is safe on the road when you finally take them out in the car:
- Install a fully functional child safety seat
- If they are extremely young or small have your partner or fellow adult cradle the baby
- Use a taxi instead. Being concerned about your baby in the car could cause an accident on the road
