As a parent, we all know how hectic life can get. When you have a baby you’re constantly on the go and in mommy mode 24/7.
Despite how attentive you are, there are times when life gets the best of us.
I remember trying to get out of the house with a baby. Who knew someone so small could need so much stuff and take so much time to get ready? The process can make your head go in a tailspin! I remember forgetting my keys and diaper bag so many times only to have to take the baby back inside to grab them!
Whether you’re distracted or in a rush, you sometimes do or forget things you never dreamed you would.
For some parents, that means forgetting that your child is in the backseat. It may sound crazy, but it happens all too often. You may say it would never happen to you, but that’s what so many other parents have echoed, only to find themselves in a dangerous situation.
Each year, an average of 37 children die from being left in hot cars or accidentally locking themselves in. Some parents tragically forgot their children were in the backseat. That can especially be true if a baby or toddler falls asleep.
I always questioned how that could happen, but after becoming a parent I understand. I can also see how parents look for any little help they can get to avoid these situations. No one wants to become a statistic.
The only way to really make sure you don’t forget your child is in the backseat is to have a reminder you can hear loud and clear. For me, that’s my kids. They’re old enough now to let me know if I ever forgot them in the backseat. But, for parents of babies and small children you still need that reminder because your kids may not be that vocal.
That’s why there’s Ride ‘n Remind. I honestly wish this product was around when my kids were babies. I don’t think I would ever worry that I would forget they were in the car with this system in place.
Ride ‘n Remind is great because it sends an extremely loud signal you and the whole neighborhood can hear so that you don’t forget your child is in the car. Every time you turn off your car, a chime goes off to remind you to check the back seat.
In order to shut off the chime, you need to press a button that is conveniently located near the rear door (installed as part of the system). If you ignore the chime, within less than 40 seconds your car horn will activate sending a very loud SOS signal.
Sure, it will wake-up your baby if he’s sleeping but that’s far better than leaving him in the car.
Even if you don’t hear this sound (which is highly unlikely), anyone in the vicinity will hear it and pay attention to your vehicle and any child that may still be inside.
You can also use Ride ‘n Remind if you have fur babies in the car. The goal is to make sure everyone and everything that needs to be out of the car is not ever forgotten.
With Ride ‘n Remind, the sad statistic of children who die because they’re left in cars can hopefully be erased once and for all.
