A Different Type of Car Seat Safety

ICE Car Seat Label

If you don’t know me, I’d probably be best descried as a “Helicopter Mom.” Some might take offense to that – me? Not at all. I’d rather be safe than sorry. When I had my son, I was obsessed with reading Lucie’s List. I learned a lot about car seat safety – the do’s and don’ts of it – and that’s where my obsession with car/kid safety began. Once I moved to San Diego and had my 2nd kiddo, I started following San Diego City Moms Blog. I went to their Safety event and ended up winning this Britax convertible car seat.

I’m crazy paranoid and think of all the different things that can happen when I get in a car with my kids… Nuts… I know. So aside from the typical car seat safety of how and where a child should be positioned (definitely follow up with the Highway Patrol annually), there’s also the factor of ICE (In Case of Emergency). What would happen if you got in a bad car wreck and you weren’t able to communicate the important info regarding your child to the first responders? That’s where this comes into play.



I place a label with the Doctor Contact, Medical Record Number, Guardian Contact, Emergency Contact, Allergies, etc. on the side of each of their car seats. I figured it was a good time to share this since I just did it on the new car seat. I hope the tip was helpful, you do it, and that it never has to come into play! What are some of your car seat safety tips or hacks?
