June is National Safety Month and it is a great reminder to take a second look at the things in our home to be sure they are as safe as possible. After a scary experience with my toddler who was found unconscious in a hot tub, we’ve realized just how quickly accidents can happen and we want to make every effort to prevent them at home. Having safety features in place in your home, such as cordless window blinds, helps keep your children safer.

Getting kids strapped into car seats takes time, especially when you have kids that are different sizes and need to adjust straps.

With this car seat, we can use it for any child that needs to ride with us.
