A companion dog who is trained to drag you to safety until help arrives, 3. Smoke and heat detectors through a home alarm service, who will send emergency personnel if they go off, and 4. A heat-triggered automatic sprinkler system. ...Read more

Child. Age 3.5yrs. Mass law. 41.4 lbs how much until she's out of a car seat and in a booster seat in back?

The national highway traffic safety administration is a great place to learn about car seats @ http://www.Nhtsa.Gov/safety/cps . Then you can turn to consumer reports for specific product recs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
China is: Only one source...There have been documented issues with least in the paint on toys imported from china. Do research on toys you want before you buy. In general though, there are toy scares on many levels. Small pieces, things that break easily and can be inhaled, etc. Use common sense. Children still love natures toys the best...Sticks, twigs, paper, boxes etc. Lol. They are so imaginative. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cut the risk: The use of belt positioning booster seats have been shown to cut the risk of injuries by half. Fancy aftermarket neck pads or belt adjusters may increase a passenger's risk of injury. Early use of an adult belt is better than no restraint at all because it prevents ejection from the vehicle.However, severe injuries can result when the belt jumps over the pelvis & impacts the abdomen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Varies : If you started with a rear facing only infant seat, they next go to a convertible seat & stay rear facing until at least 2 yrs (can stay that way to the rear facing weight limit, often 30-40 lb). After that they forward face up to the seat weight limit usually 50 lb. I recommend that parents start off with a convertible car seat which you get a full 4-5 years use from before it needs replacing. ...Read more

Pick your crash ??: The 5 point restraint belts are now available in safety seats up to 80+ pounds from some sources. These systems offer the broadest range of protection from rollover, side impact, front or rear impact crashes. Simple boosters offer little protection during rollover or side impact events. I go for the best possible protection, since no one can pick their crash. ...Read more
Yes: Every baby born less than 37 weeks gestation should have a car seat trial before discharge from the hospital, to ensure breathing is adequate. The hospital staff should check to see if the car seat you've selected is appropriate for the baby's size, and they should teach you how to use it safely. Baby may need a car bed if s/he fails the car seat test. Always place the car seat rear-facing. ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers

Why don't manufactures just make fire safety furniture and mattress, instead of poisioing smokers?
They do: If the only problem with smoking was that you might set your place on fire, there wouldn't be much said on this issue. Many items of furniture are treated for fire resistance but are unlikely to withstand the heat of using them to support a lit cigarette. Smoking is so bad, in so many ways that perhaps you can use this concern to quite smoking altogether. ...Read more
