  • Another Car Seat Warning

    FacebookTwitterPinterest

    As I prepared breakfast this morning, I saw a report on the local news that chemicals on car seats could be harmful. Here’s the online report that the local story came from. The local news station’s report isn’t on their website, but they said that the toxins are more likely to be a problem as the car seat wears out, so it’s probably a good idea to make sure the plastic isn’t cracking or thinning (which seems like a good idea for basic safety anyway). The online report also offers a couple of recommendations to minimize risk, including keeping car seats out of the sun as much as possible – I’m going to start covering ours with a blanket when I have to park outdoors, which I need to do anyway to keep the metal part of the buckle from getting too hot in the Southern California heat.
