Happy Mother’s Day Weekend from CarseatBlog!

Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all the wonderful Moms out there who are passionate about all kinds of important things – not just child passenger safety! My youngest son made this for me two years ago when he was in 1st grade. It always makes me smile when I look at it – I probably should frame it and hang it on the wall. Today I share it with all of you because we need each other – to learn from, to grow with and to help enable our next carseat or booster purchase! Lol.

Best Mother's Day Sentiment

Stay tuned to the blog because we’ll be posting a Mother’s Day giveaway in the next few hours!

Happy Holidays from CarseatBlog!

I’ve got three kids spoiled from Hanukkah gifts and who are about to be over-spoiled from Christmas gifts as well.  Plus, we’re taking a short vacation and having lots of family and friends visit as well.  I know Heather, Kecia, Jennie and Alicia all have holiday plans, too.  So, we’re taking a couple weeks off and will return to blogging (and dieting?) the week of January 7th.  At least one of us will be checking in to announce contest winners and also to start our new promotion each Monday.  Stay tuned for some great giveaways and please tell your friends about CarseatBlog.  We hope to see you back with us in January :-)

Merry Christmas and have a Safe & Happy New Year in 2013 from CarseatBlog!

Happy 2012 From CarseatBlog!

CarseatBlog is undergoing some maintenance, but if you can see this message, you’ve found us on our new server.  We’ll be back to normal next week!  Please have a safe, happy and healthy new year from Heather, Jennie, Kecia and Darren.

Happy Holidays


Happy Thanksgiving from our families to yours!  We hope everyone has a fantastic holiday and safe travels to and from your destination.  If you’re lucky enough to be staying home tomorrow – I’m jealous.  We’ll be sitting in traffic trying to get to Long Island.  Yeah… so not fun.  But I still have tons to be thankful for so I’ll try to keep that in mind while I’m creeping along on the Van Wyck Expressway.  

Of course I’m thankful for great friends, a wonderful family, our health, a roof over our heads, the food on our table and all the other important stuff that I try never to lose sight of.  But this is CarseatBlog so I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the CPS-related stuf that I’m super thankful for this year.  

I’m thankful for (in no particular order)…

  • Backless Turbo boosters that come fully assembled and with the screws already in the armrests
  • Dorel’s new dual level-to-ground lines
  • Lots of new infant seats (and even a few convertibles) that fit smaller newborns really well
  • My pre-advisory Regent installed with long belt path routing in my minivan (the perfect seat for my DS2 in my vehicle) 
  • The new AAP recommendations on carseat and booster usage
  • All the smart, passionate & dedicated techs, instructors and advocates that I learn from everyday 

So, what are you thankful for this year?
