Query by hlstream987: Does anyone know what the car seat regulations are for preemies?
My daughter may be coming home subsequent week from the hospital and I want to know what the security vehicle seat regulations are for preemies. I at present have a Graco Snugride in Jungle Adventure.

She is currently 4 lb 12 oz and 15.5 inches tall, but will be five lb by next week.

Greatest answer:

Answer by dueinoctwith#3
Carseat rules are still the exact same, infant seats and rearfacing convertable seats each operate for five lbs and up. They will most probably test your daughter first at the hospital to make positive she will be ok riding residence in the carseat. My son was nearly 8 lbs but he was 4 wks early so they still say he was premature and required the test . They took him and put him in his carseat and put it on a machine that simulates a extended car ride for an hour and they watch to make that the infant can handle it with out getting stressed or anything.

What do you believe? Answer below! What You Can Do To Be A Great Parent

Becoming a parent is one of the best gifts life has to offer. The tips in this article describe some of the most effective techniques in parenting in modern times. Raising a child is a trek that will require commitment, but the insights in this article will travel with you.

Teaching your child where things should go will teach him or her how to be organized. Toys and art supplies can end up all over the house if your child does not know where something should go. If you set a good example, and teach your children where to put things, they will learn to pick up their toys when they finish playing.

While it is important to spend time with your kids, you always need to set aside some time for yourself. This helps you keep your individuality, while also being a great parent.

When your child describes a problem to you, try to see it from his perspective. Something like not having a red crayon can seem trivial to you, but it can mean a big deal to the child.

Choose your battles wisely. You don’t want to fight with your child over everything, so chose the most crucial items that need addressing. Boundaries help to keep children secure, but they also need the freedom to make their choices and express themselves.

During potty training, take your child to the bathroom every few hours. It is hard for toddlers to remember they have to go. Escorting a child to the potty every two hours will prevent the majority of accidents. This conditions him to learn to use the bathroom before the need gets to be too urgent.

If your baby will not settle, dab a bit of lavender essential oil on your neck, and snuggle up to your child. Your baby will instantly be soothed by the aroma. Lavender oil can also be used to help a child fall to sleep when nap time arrives because the oil is very calming.

It is important to remember to bring items that bring your young children comfort when you are traveling. A vacation can be a major disruption to the routine of a child, so if you work on keeping their routines in place and having something comforting for them, it can make it a lot easier. Keeping a favorite toy or blanket handy can help your little one adjust to a different location, with a minimum of fuss.

Parenting is challenging in these times, but hopefully the information presented here has better prepared you. Your children are a gift, and applying the suggestions in this article can enable you to enjoy and care for them well. Being a parent can be one of the most satisfying life experiences, and hopefully this article has helped you to be the best parent you can be.

    BEST seat for the $$$, October 2, 2007
    Mama_C (Virginia, USA) –

    This seat is AWESOME. It is sturdy, easy to use, easy to clean, inexpensive, comfortable, long-lasting, and more. I had an older version of this same seat (about two years ago) and bought two of this version–the old one for my hubby’s car and these two for my minivan. My two-year-old LOVES the soft, cushiony seat–she always takes her shoes and socks off to rub her feet on it, and my 6-month-old loves the extra room and freedom of the bigger seat (she got too big for the Graco carrier kind.) The tilt is very easy to use and it installs fast and quickly–with LATCH–I haven’t tried any other method. They fit beautifully into both my hubby’s VW Passat and my Hyundai minivan–we’re both tall and still have plenty of room to have our seats all the way back and these seats installed in both front and rear facing positions. It also cleans easy–straight into the wash and cool-setting dryer.

    I hope this helps you with your car-seat purchase decision. I know I was a little overwhelmed by all of the choices and price differences. This seat was $90 with free shipping (from Amazon via BabyAge, I think–got here in two days!!) when I got it. I did go to a local store first to check these out (it was $160 in the store) I found the cheaper seats (Graco, Evenflo) had thinner padding. The more expensive seats (Brittax, etc.) had lots of colors and similar padding to this seat. I don’t really think the kids care that much about the colors–their butts are on them, you know? I like that this fabric seems to hide everything my two-year-old can dish out on it–and then wash easily if it gets stinky. Oh–the other thing I really like about this seat is how easily the straps adjust–I haven’t seen any that are easier–if you look at the picture you’ll see these little red handles at the top–you simply push/pull these and the straps slide up or down–other car seats you have to rethread the things–who has time for that!?! Also, the arm rests are adjustable–I have them up and out of the way for now–when we transition to the booster, I’m sure I’ll bring them down.

    Good luck!!
    p.s. I’ve read a few of the negative reviews and have some tips–
    1. For the ones who couldn’t remove the infant headrest, it is very easy to remove. Unthread the belts from the clip in the rear, thread out through the front and the headrest slides off–then rethread (the instructions are in the back of the book–look under cleaning.)
    2. For the tilt–for cars with bucket seats, you will need to use a prop to adjust the front of the seat when rear-facing. You can purchase a $10 adjuster, cut up a $1 swimmers noodle, or roll up a towel–all are safe–and you can ask you car service dept or safety official to help with the install (most local police departments have monthly safety seat checks.)
    I still love this seat–I think it is super easy to use.

    Rear facing car seat – you CAN install it rear facing!!!, April 26, 2010
    JAH (Lincoln, NE) –

    Okay….so all of these reviews make it seem impossible to install rear-facing. However, I’m here to tell you it’s not.

    First, let me tell you my little story of installation! I first tried installing the Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite car seat rear-facing in my 2004 Mazda 3 using the LATCH system. I followed the instructions to the letter and also used one regular-size towel rolled up underneath it. I thought I had it in there pretty good, but I asked my husband to take a look to see if he could get it a little tighter since it seemed to move a little side to side. We both agreed that it was a little too loose and there was still quite a bit of open space underneath the car seat, which caused additional wiggle room for the car seat to move. We also couldn’t seem to get the darn thing level AND tight at the same time.

    We took a break from my car and my husband starting working on installing the same car seat in his 2003 GMC pickup, again using the LATCH system. (We bought two identical car seats.) He used one towel underneath, but he absolutely couldn’t get it level with the ground and tight at the same time! As he pulled the seat tighter, the seat kept moving up to a sitting position rather than reclined. In fact, he pulled the straps so tight, we couldn’t get the darn thing OUT either! The locking mechanism gets jammed if you pull it too tight. Thank goodness we were able to get the towel out from underneath and we detached the base from the car seat (while it was still installed in the truck), which gave us enough room to unhook the car seat from the pickup’s LATCH hooks.

    So, after about an hour or more of messing around with the car seat and cussing up a storm, we decided to take a break and I did a little research online. I found a video on Safety 1st’s website about how to install a rear facing car seat and I also checked out several reviews to see if anyone had advice.

    After watching the video, reading the instructions several more times and reading several reviews, I decided to tackle it again. First, ***I removed the base from the car seat*** and used a rolled up bath sheet(a big oversized towel similar to the one used in the video) to put underneath the car seat. The secret is to REMOVE THE BASE!!! It doesn’t affect the safety at all and allows for a MUCH better fit when rear-facing!!! It took me all of 5 minutes to get the car seat secured rear-facing in my Mazda 3. And, the bath towel just basically fills the open space right underneath the lower section of the car seat. The car seat really doesn’t sit on the towel at all. I did it just like the video shows and it is a secure fit. Another secret I learned from another review is to put your knee down in the car seat where the child’s sits and also push straight down hard on the top of the car seat as you pull the straps tight. This will help keep it level with the ground as you’re pulling it tight.

    I strongly urge you to watch the video and be patient. It was a heck of a lot easier than I thought originally and all it took was for me to step away for a little while and come back to it. Five minutes, literally, to install this thing without the base attached. Give it a try! This car seat is worth it and is very secure for my 10-month old!

    Good luck and best wishes to you!

    I’ve had 2 premies, you just use the car seat you already have but when you put bub in adjust the harness so its quite snug.
    Good luck on getting out of hospital next week, i was in for 7 weeks with my daughter who was born at 32 weeks and 2 weeks with my newest bub who was born at 35 weeks.

    I don’t know, but have you asked your local fire department or hospital?

    Good luck and congratulations!

    The regs are the same, you only have to do something special if they are under 5 lbs then you have to get a 4lb car seat, which are chicco keyfit 30 and there is a britax one.

    They might have you do a carseat challenge where they put her in the car seat for twice the amount of time it takes you to get home to make sure she is ok sitting up.

    and for when she comes home, do everything you can before the day she comes home, it makes every thing go really smoothly and you dont have to go through a long period of wait while you are there.
