- American Academy of Pediatrics New Car Seat Recommendations
- Baby Bargains Car Seat Chapter download - Best EVER buying guide is the "Baby Bargains" book but here is a link for purchasing JUST the car seat chapter of the latest edition. This is great if you are looking for the next size of car seat but not currently buying any other baby gear (so you don't need the whole book, just this chapter).
- State Laws for Car Seats - Baby Center has made a tool to see what your state requires for car seats depending on the age and size of a child. Check it out.
Sun Block Resources:
- EWG (Environmental Working Group) Sunscreen Report - Great site for finding the safest and most reliable sun screens. Everything is rated and explained.
- Safe Mama "Sunscreen Cheat Sheet" - A blog created by a mom who has done tons of research on the safety of sunscreen and other parenting safety issues.
- Here is a fun experiment to show kids why we need sunblock.
Recalls on Baby/Kid Stuff:
- Toy recalls from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission
- Non-toy item recalls from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission
- Recall search page by BabyCenter.com Product-Recall-Finder
My Favorite Unique Safety Products:
- Outlet Cover by Safety First - Better than any outlet covers I've seen. It replaces the actual outlet plate and is essentially impossible for a toddler to get off. Once our older daughter was mobile I put these on all of the outlets in her room.
- Power Strip Cover - We don't own this item but it seems like a genius idea.
- Furniture No Tip Wall Anchors - version 1, version 2, version 3 We don't use these but I've considered them, particularly for taller furniture. We try to have very stable/short furniture in our kid's rooms.
- Safety Tattoos - Temporary Tattoos with messages about food allergies, Autism, or parent contact info for lost children.
