Vaccine Logic Applied to Car Seats.

Posted on Dec 4, 2013

Brilliant analogy… Well worth clicking the link and reading the whole post!

Does it make sense to use car safety seats only sometimes, or only when children are older?

Trusted Pediatrician: “Mrs. Johnson, Bobby is doing great! He’s growing fine, and doing all of the things a six month old baby ought to do. What questions do you have for me?”

Mrs. Johnson: “Well, now that he’s six months old, and I’m wondering if now is the time to start using his car seat.”

Trusted Pediatrician: “Now? You should have been using a car seat all along, every time. We’ve talked about that, it’s on our handouts, it’s on the sheet from the hospital, it’s recommended by every health authority in the entire world.”

Mrs. Johnson: “Oh I know that. But I did my research on Google. So I know young babies aren’t yet developed enough to use a car seat. That’s why I waited.”
