Which Car Seat Is Safest For My 3 Month Old Child
Rear facing harness: The rear facing five point harness system is my choice for all infants under two and up to three if your child is still in the seats weight range. I prefer the convertable systems since you can get four or more years of use out of one seat. The model you understand how to install is your best bet. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 3 month old only sleeps in her car seat. Does that make her any more or less at risk for sids? I'm petrified
Baby is 3 months old. She started getting out of her carseat a little before she was 7 weeks old. Is this normal?Carseat is not strapped, not in car
Confusing question: No 3mo infant should have the motor skills to separate the chest clip or other straps of an infant car seat. If you mean she wiggles out of an unrestrained setting in a car seat , yes they can.Infants can wiggle & flip & have been known to become entangled in blankets & suffocate or flip the seat off a table.Best to strap them in during use as a seat. ...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?
My 18 month old is still using the same car seat that she's had since birth, rear-facing. She is still comfortable. What/when is the next step?
Check the stickers: I am encouraged that you have her rear facing as many aren't that smart. I encourage mom's to keep their kids rear facing until at least 2 (prefer 3) or the upper weight limit of a convertible seat. Newer models go rf to 40 lb and then function ff to 50.The stickers on the seat should tell you what the limits are, if no labels, get a new seat. Keep up the good work. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
23 month old throws fits when we have to get in the car seat. Can last an hr. Is it ok to turn the car seat to forward facing now? I can't force him
I wouldn't: You wouldn't ask the question unless you were ambivalent or really frustrated.You might try to locate a child passenger safety tech locally for help.Risk of neck/spine injury for forward facing kids depends on size, muscle tone and the crash involved.The European standard is rear facing to 3. Sometimes just giving small gifts for getting into the seat properly can help. ...Read more
Time to fix this!: He's just gotten used to sleeping there;it's time to retrain him to sleep in his crib. Put baby in bed sleepy but awake, & leave room. If he still cries after 5 minutes, return but only to tuck him in again without speaking or picking him up. Leave again and start gradually prolonging each interval before each return. It can take a few days, but your baby will learn! ...Read more
How can I get my 4 month old to nap in his crib? Right now he will only sleep in swing or car seat.
Does he seem: to be uncomfortable in his crib? Does he spit up a lot when lying down or cry and arch his back or awaken more often? He may have reflux even if he is not spitting up. If that is the case, an antacid will relieve his discomfort. Discuss with his pediatrician and if all is ok you can use behavioral measures. Call back after discussion.

My tailbone hurts when i move a certain way ! i lift my 8 yr old into his wheelchair and carry 6 month old in a car seat ? Could it be from lifting ?
Yes: You have a 6 month old baby, which can be a lot of lifting, clumsy postures with the car seat, and loss of sleep. You also have a child who is older and heavier, who needs lifting. It must be difficult to find the time to care for your back (walk, stretch and strengthen) if your babies were born by cesarean section, you may need a corset to protect your back. Seek physical therapy for you! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
