Car Seat Clinic at Blue Cocoon Boutique on March 7th

More than 3 out of 4 infant and child car seats are installed incorrectly, according to the NHTSA. In an accident–or even a quick stop–an improperly fastened seat may not protect the child.

Parents in the Cincinnati area can be more sure that their children are safe in their cars thanks to a free car seat clinic at Blue Cocoon Boutique at 9361 Montgomery Road on Saturday, March 7.

The clinic begins at noon and will feature individual car seat checks throughout the day by a technician from Baby Bodyguards. Space is limited, and registration is required. Schedule an appointment by visiting bluecocoonbaby.com and choosing “Class Registration” or calling Blue Cocoon at 513.791.1089.

The clinic is sponsored by Blue Cocoon and Baby Bodyguards of SW Ohio. For more information, visit bluecocoonbaby.com or babybodyguards.com.

Brooklyn Baby Expo

Last Sunday Baby Bodyguards was at the first ever Brooklyn Baby Expo and it was amazing. Karen from A Child Grows in Brooklyn, put it together so we knew it would be.

Britax was kind enough to bring us a demo rig so Fred, who is a Certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, could demonstrate the proper way to install a car seat. They even gave us a Britax Boulevard 70 to raffle off! It’s an awesome seat, very safe and comfy, but BIG!

It was wonderful seeing a lot of our past clients and meeting lots of expecting couples and answering their baby safety questions.

For those of you that missed it this year, it’s a must for next!

I thought this may be of interest to you guys. FDNY is offering a free hour long CPR to  go course.

The Department will offer CPR training to the public at both Department Facilities and participating New York Sports Club locations throughout the five boroughs. Everyone who completes the training will receive a free, transferable week-long pass to NYSC for you or a friend.

The program is designed to teach you how to save your Family and Friends.  The course does not provide certification.

As part of the class, you will be asked to pledge to give back by sharing your knowledge with five other people. To help you do so, you’ll get to take home your CPR training kit, complete with an inflatable training doll and training DVD in English and Spanish.

Momasphere and Bump present a probing panel discussion & book reading that examines body image and motherhood. Whether you want to become pregnant for the first time, you’re currently pregnant, 4 months out of pregnancy or 10 years out of pregnancy, this book deals with body image and fitness issues that last a lifetime. Beauty activists Claire Mysko and Magali Amadei surveyed more than 400 women, including those who are considering starting a family, moms-to-be, and mothers. They offer a much-needed forewarning on what to expect from your changing body, exposing the myths, challenges, and insecurities you’ll face throughout pregnancy and beyond—and what to do about them. With startling confessions of women’s unspoken fears and advice on how to remedy them, this essential compendium of girl-friendly advice will help champion any woman to feel her best about her body, herself, and her role as a mom.

I will be there, and am really excited because this is such an important issue. Every woman in my life has struggles with body image, and self-esteem issues at one time or another. Please come, you won’t be disappointed, and there will be great raffles (we contributed) and goody bags.
