Welcome! CarseatBlog.com is THE mommy blog (and daddy blog too) with expertise on all things related to transporting kids safely in cars!  Kecia, Heather, Darren, and Jennie are all highly trained in child passenger safety and produce the vast majority of original content for CarseatBlog.  Our focus is on new product announcements, product reviews, the latest news stories, plus conference and trade show reports. As both parents and educators, we can’t help but provide educational content for parents while speaking to fellow CPS technicians and advocates. You’ll also find in-depth evaluations of family vehicles, including SUVs and minivans, with a unique, expert perspective on safety and carseat installation that is important to families with children.

Because we’re parents, other parenting topics may be discussed, and may include reviews on baby gear other than carseats, or other products appropriate for families with young children.  Whether our review is of a carseat, automobile, stroller or other product, we do not hesitate to discuss its flaws and other potential issues.  Unlike other reviews on the web, we do not gloss over problems that might be important to you!  If a product doesn’t meet our standards, we simply won’t review it!  We don’t compromise our standards just to sell a few carseats or to please a manufacturer with a glowing review.

CarseatBlog first began publishing at WordPress.com in January, 2007; the first expert blog of its kind that focused specifically on child safety seat reviews, news and advice!  We celebrate our official anniversary from July, 2008 when our team of moms and dads, all child passenger safety technicians and instructors, began publishing articles regularly on traffic safety issues at our own self-hosted WordPress blog.

We strive to be objective in all our reviews, whether we received a free sample, were given a discount, or purchased it ourselves at retail price. Though most of our reviews will be positive overall, we will not hesitate to discuss flaws and problem issues. In general, we will simply not post a detailed product review that would be very negative overall, especially if a manufacturer, retailer, or distributor generously provided the product to us. We do always provide feedback (positive and negative) to manufacturers when requested.
