Childproofing was so overwhelming to me and didn’t want to get what we didn’t need. I was curious to what other parents did, so I asked and built off of that.
After purchasing our first car seat (Uppa Mesa) two months before Cataleya was born, we left the huge box just sitting in our living room. Then I was 37 weeks pregnant and my midwife Renee asked if we installed it into our car yet 😳. We just thought to swing by a fire department and have them ensure we installed it right. What we didn’t know was that most aren’t technicians nor certified. Here is a good article to read from the Car Seat Blog 🤓. That’s when Renee recommended Karen Apolinario, who’s is a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST).
This past weekend my husband and I took a CPR AED course. Jezriel took one in high school and I’ve never attended one, so I had no idea what to expect. I really wanted us to take it because I want to feel more comfortable practicing baby led weaning with my daughter. She’s 7.5 months old now and I’ve been holding back on her playing and/or exploring solids. Wasn’t too worried pushing off solids, because I knew she was still getting all her nutrients from breastfeeding.
