In honor of National Child Safety Week, we wanted to share the following post from Kate Carr, President and CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide.
Thirty-two years ago, my first daughter, Jennifer, was born. When it was time to leave the hospital, she was placed lovingly in the back seat of our car, resting comfortably in a very nice but hardly secure Moses basket.
That's right. Just a basket resting on the back seat.
I didn't put Jenny in a Moses basket because I didn't have the resources for a car seat. Like every new parent, I would have done anything to protect my baby. I just didn't know any better.
