When one vehicle collides with another, the damages go far beyond that of broken headlights and smashed glass.
Every car crash has three stages!
The first stage is the car crashing into something. Then comes the second when the people inside the car crash into the car’s interior. Hopefully the seat belt and air-bags!
Then comes the third and last stage, where our internal organs are banging into each other and into our ribcage, and our brain is banging around in our skull.
To minimise the damage done to us we must wear our seatbelts, and our children must be properly secured in their age appropriate car restraint!
The safest position for your child, is the rear facing position. It does not matter what age we are, rear facing will always be safer.
There are a large market for rear facing car seats. I have them all on the top menu under “Extended Rear Facing Car Seats” and you can also find the “budget seats” under “The Cheaper Car Seats”.
I hope everyone of you lovely readers had a happy mother’s day. 🙂
I got to sleep in and the kids gave me flowers and a card in bed. 😀
My 3yo wrote her name on her own and Henry (19m) had help, but it was so lovely!!

I have thrown up a reblog of the whole post (found here), but I thought since it’s such a long post, I’ll just post the actual email in a separate post. 🙂
The email is from Robert Bell who is considered an expert in this field. Robert Bell was CEO at Britax Nordiska throughout the 90s. Today he own Sakta (Sakerhetsbutikken) where he sells car seats and other safety equipment. He trains staff in car seat safety, is a member of the SIS-committee, and is involved in the development of car seats, so works closely together with the manufacturers.
Here is he’s email answering our question to the everlasting debate: IS it safe to use a filler in a bottom floor compartment, or if long enough, extend the foot-prop leg of the car seat all the way down to the bottom?
A couple of days a go I got a wonderful Email from Tots100 regarding a chance to test some products. 😀
The products are through Ruta Ett DVD AB. Ruta Ett DVD AB is a leading edge Swedish children’s media company with an international market. The products in question are from a series called: Heroes of the City
About Heroes of The City:
Heroes of the City is a television cartoon about rescue vehicles in a small town where everyone can be a hero! Follow the fantastically exciting adventures along with friends in town. Meet Paulie Police Car and Fiona Fire Engine as they help the townspeople find thieves, put out fires, and solve one of the many mysteries that happen in the otherwise quiet town. You will also get to know Calamity Crow, the most unlucky bird in town. Emphasizing friendship, Heroes of the City contains a great deal of warmth and what may be accomplished by helping each other. The cartoon is primarily targeted at children age 3 – 7.
I received a Heroes of the City -kit for my children. 😀 In it was one of the books, two cars and one of the DVDs. My children are 3 years old and 17 months old. And even though they say they cater for older children around 3 and up, my 17 month old LOVES this!!! 😀
