It’s a scenario no one wants to think about, but just to be on the safe side, there’s one more feature parents should add to their car seat once it’s set up and ready to go.
Sharing on Facebook, the Homeschool Potpourri page says your child’s emergency contact details should be attached to the car seat.
“Thanks to Kaitlyn Lawson for posting this,” the post starts. “Way too often do firefighters come upon a car wreck with a child(ren) in the car who are too young to have any info and parents are unconscious.
“It takes 2 minutes of your time to write out the child’s name, DOB, parents’ names, DOB, emergency contacts and any medical conditions, any meds your child is on and even the child’s doctor, then stick it to the child’s car seat.
“This helps EMS a ton and can also help save your child’s life.”

Many commenters thanked the page for sharing a simple tip that could make a huge difference in the event of an emergency.
One parent countered with another tip that we think is a great idea too.
“I have this on mine,” they wrote, “but I covered it with a flap that says in case of emergency, this way you can’t have creeps look into your car and get all you and your child’s information.”
