My sister-in-law is at her seventh month of pregnancy now, so there are a couple of months left to prepare things for her baby. Since it will be her first experience to have a baby, she and her husband sometimes consult us about things they should prepare. Like a wise man say “There’s always a first time”. I remember those times when I was about to be a father. I kept asking The Man Above “let her be a normal baby”. I was inside the birth room, holding my wife while she gave birth.
Anyway, one thing I remember clearly is the day when we took our newly born baby home. We had no car, so we borrowed one from our neighbor. It was a good car but was not so comfortable in my opinion. May be it was just my feeling, but at that time I really felt the importance to have a special car seat for our baby, so I drove very carefully and a bit slower than normal and finally brought her home safe and sound.
Today when my sister-in-law came to visit us, I told her that they should get one of those convertible car seats. It will not be just for one time use because they have their own car. It can be useful for at least the next 2 or 3 years ahead until the baby grows to be a toddler. It would also be useful for the second arrival. Even probably for us, because we are planning to give Katrin a brother :). By the way, when browsing the internet for information about car seat for baby, I found this interesting shopping site. They have a different style than any other normal shopping site. There are many kinds of things there listed in a simple order but informative enough. I think it’s worth a try for shoppers.
