Wordless Wednesday: Family Safety

Family Safety, Wordless Wednesday

This week we asked: What does family safety look like?

(Please enjoy this week’s articles on the theme: car seat and tornado safety so far.)

Jack on a Bike
From Jenn: “Highly rated child’s safety seat, properly fitted helmet.
Mom just needs her helmet, and what a ride we will have!”
Jenn blogs at Monkey Butt Junction.

From Charise: “We try to keep our family safe from toxins and chemicals by using natural cleaners.
Jac knows that vinegar is even safe enough for his baby bear to play with!”
Charise blogs at I Thought I Knew Mama.

Safest seat in the house!

Baby’s First Bike Ride!
Delilah rides in style and safety in her bike trailer wearing her fancy helmet!
Joella blogs at Fine and Fair.

From Luschka: “My daughter was born in water and has loved water all her life. At the first possible opportunity we had her in the pool. For us, safety means being constantly vigilant when we’re near water, making sure she’s always in our sight, but still giving her room to explore and learn. Now when she sees a pool she will run to the side, then sit on her haunches as she waits for us to get in before leaping in herself β€” completely trusting that we will catch her.”
Luschka blogs at Diary of a First Child.

rear facing car seat
From Lauren: “When our chunkamunka outgrew rear facing in this convertible car seat,
we bought a special high-weight seat that has allowed him to continue rear facing
β€”Β still safe and cozy and facing backwards at 3.75 years old so far!”
Lauren blogs at Hobo Mama.

Tell us: What does safety look like for your family?

    Love the smiling face of Lauren’s kiddo πŸ™‚ Saftey for us means bike helments and no running on concrete and being careful around the kitchen.

    I love the cleaning products safety one! I see my son pushing our bottle of vinegar around once in awhile and makes me feel like we are doing the right thing by cleaning green.

    Those are great! I can never get enough of looking at photos of cute little ones.

    <3 We will be looking into a bigger rear facing here as well. Little miss will probably hit the height limit way before she should be turned FF.

      It’s well worth it. Once I read the statistics (and crash reports β€” eek) of RF vs. FF crashes, I was convinced. It makes me want to ride rear facing!

      I found this forum http://www.car-seat.org/ a great resource for helping to find a seat that fits our kid & our car β€” they could help you choose one with a higher shell height.

    Some of those images are too cute. I’m impressed that Lauren has managed to keep Mikko in a rear-facing car seat for all this time. My kids were desperate for front-facing by age 1.

    What an adorable group of SAFE kiddos! Off to check out your previous entries and their blogs too! (Since we’re in the market for a bike seat for our wee man!)
