There is a lot of hustle- bustle on internet about a mother who holds her baby upside down, or above her head in a car seat. But why would a mother do that? Well, this enticed us, too, and when we found out the reason behind those posts by a caring mother, we found it worth sharing with you.
- The post by Rachel McNamara were storming the Facebook, in which she has shared pics of her child, holding the baby upside down and over her head in child’s car seat.
- But if you read the post you will find out that it’s not a crazy mother, rather a very caring and concerned one.
- Rachel posted it to encourage car safety of a child. She encouraged parents to think carefully about their child’s safety in a car if they are confident that the seat will hold their baby if their car meets and accident or flipped or roll over.
- Her post has been shared on Facebook by almost 50,000 times. She got over 2,500 responses from parents. It turned out to be a grateful thing for the parents.
- In her post Rachel writes “After strapping your child into their car seat, ask yourself if you’d be comfortable flipping it upside down. Remember that the chest clip should be at armpit level and the straps should be tight enough to pass the pinch test.”
- She further updated her post to clarify her intentions “I’d like to clarify that I’m not advocating that parents should be flipping their kids upside down before every car ride. Just that they should feel confident that their child would be safe if the car seat was flipped over in an accident. I think this is a great visual and shows just how important proper car sear use is.”
- Not just that, when she received such huge responses from the parents worldwide she went on to provide other road safety tips. Such as the “pinch test”, she says once the baby is in the seat and strapped “you shouldn’t be able to pinch any if the strap between two fingers.”
- She gives a number of car safety and road safety advices and people are following them, too. As they are looking forward to her assistance in their child’s safety measurements.
