Rear-facing car seat: Never leave a child alone in a car. Use an approved infant car safety seat and follow the instructions for proper use. You are encouraged to have your car seat installation checked at a child seat safety inspection station.  you can find inspection stations in your area by visiting the national highway traffic safety administration website:  www.Nhtsa.Gov. Parents should always wear seat belts.

Proper safety seat: Use a proper rear facing, five point restraint system that is properly installed in the car. If possible, position in the middle of the back seat. If not approved (car owner manual) the passenger back is 2nd choice. If using a removable seat, never put it on the roof or hood, only the ground if entering or exiting. Remove any loose objects that might fly out in a roll over & hit you or baby.

Is it safe to take my 2 month old to watch fireworks?

Setting ???: Though it might be a fun family outing i don't think your 2 mo would get much out of it.They can see clearly about 2 feet, before everything gets blurry. As the hot summer progresses, it is easy for the infants to become overheated out doors and the mosquitoes love tender flesh. Safety is a relative judgement call.Although not dangerous, i would leave the kid indoors.

Is traveling for the holidays safe with a two month old during flu season?

Should be: As with most things, "safe" is a relative term. It certainly is a time of year when there is lots of illness around but family often trumps what is "safest.". Do ensure that the baby receives all of his/her two month vaccinations prior to travel the baby does not have to be exactly 2 months to receive these.

Don't try 2 find out: Seriously? 2 month old chili? 60 days? Hopefully in fridge! but it's difficult, no, impossible(!), for me to recommend that you try it to find out. Why take the risk? If you have nothing else to eat, there are social programs available to assist you. Just reach out. Check out http://www.Mealcall.Org/meals-on-wheels/ca/corona.Htm for a start. Good luck! but throw out that chili b4 someone else eats.

Yes: Your baby will enjoy just hearing your voice. You can read aloud your favorite mystery or spy novel while feeding or cuddling with the baby.
