Carrying a baby in your car requires that you drive safely and also warn other motorists that you have a baby on board so that they too can keep a distance. In this post, we will look at some of the safety tips you need to adhere to while carrying a baby in your vehicle
The first thing you must ensure is informing other motorists that you have a baby on board so that they do not come too close. Though even in other settings they should keep a distance so as not to cause accidents, the baby on board sticker somehow makes them aware that there is a delicate creature you are carrying at the back and as such, any small contact between their car and yours could harm the baby.
Our skins are not similar to that of a baby. While ours have been toughened by age, a baby’s kin is delicate and light. Direct UV rays could cause harm to their internal organs and as such you need to keep them away from this sunlight by having a good canopy as well as tinted car glasses.
Low music volume
Carrying a baby also means that you have to have mild music volume. Unlike the time you travel with the boys and spare no decibel of volume, with the baby, you do not want to wake them in their sleep or even destroy their ear-drums with deafening music volume.
Cold draughts and insects
Baby seat protector covers help prevent the baby from cold draughts, rain drops as well as insects that might want to come into contact with the child.
When buying the baby car seat, always make sure to see that it has some straps that keep the baby fastened into their seats and that there is minimal movement or rocking.
You also need to keep your driving speed at a reasonable limit unlike when you are carrying your friends. This is so as to hit bumps with minimal shock to the baby.
