Carseat Safety Labels

It something no one wants to think about: what happens to your baby if something happens to you. A friend was recently in a car accident that rendered her unconscious - with her little one in the backseat! Luckily, everyone was fine. Thanks to some prior planning, the paramedics were able to get in contact with friends that were able to come take care of the baby.

Since we are away from family, I've been lining up Emergency Contacts in the area and making sure all our base forms have the right information. (If you have your child in any sort of daycare program, you will want to make sure you have names besides you and your partner on the pick up list - just in case.) This is even more important given deployments and TDY's - having a plan for when your partner is out of town.

I was browsing Pinterest and found these great labels on Oops I Craft My Pants. You print the labels on label paper and stick them to your car seat. I've also put one in the diaper bag.

Please take a second and print these out. I sincerely hope you will never have to use them, but if anything ever happens, you will be glad you did.


  1. That is a wonderful idea that I had not thought of. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh, these are awesome! I'm thinking maybe adding blood type to the label would be good as well.
