She answers common questions, including: Is it dangerous for my baby to touch, grab, and lick everything? Can I bring my infant outdoors? How do I choose safe, high-quality child care?

Episode 2: Rear-Facing Car Seats 

Sarah Tilton, Director of Consumer Advocacy at Britax, discusses and demonstrates how to properly choose and use the best rear-facing car seats. 

Episode 3: Forward-Facing Car Seats

What is Baby Safety Month?  

Each September, the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) of Mount Laurel, NJ, leads an awareness campaign to alert parents and caregivers about the importance of properly choosing and using the best products according to a child’s age and developmental stage as outlined by the manufacturer.
