Safety

Here we will keep you up-to-date with any important safety information and reminders.

 

WARNING: Car Seats

There is a risk that your baby may stop breathing if they are not postioned correctly in their car seat – you can reduce this risk.  Click here for more information.

PLEASE DO NOT COVER BUGGIES OR CAR SEATS WITH BLANKETS IN HOT WEATHER

The NHS advises that you keep young children SHADED from the sun using a parasol or sunshade if they are in buggies during hot weather. However completely covering a buggy or car seat with a blanket can result in warm air becoming trapped inside which may lead to overheating! Breathing the same trapped air over and over results in a build up of CO2 and a reduction in Oxygen. Good ventilation is part of the general advice issued by the NHS in relation to the prevention of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
