The Car Seat Lady on Good Morning America

Dr. Alisa Baer, aka "The Car Seat Lady," had a great segment on yesterday's Good Morning America:  "The 5 Most Important Things Parents Should Know About Car Seats."

Dr. Baer is a NICU specialist at Columbia University's Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital.  Safety is in her blood:  Her mother, Debbi Baer (a nurse), was the original Car Seat Lady and still provides child passenger safety consultation in the Baltimore, MD area. 

Check out the wonderful Car Seat Lady blog and "Like" the Car Seat Lady page on Facebook. 

When you go to her blog, ahem, notice the first picture in the Bundle Me post (looks familiar?), as well as the last picture (Blue Camouflage M/L) at the bottom!

Bidding Fond Farewell to Paisley

Paisley will not be available after Winter 2011.
For some inexplicable reason, the wonderful mill that supplies the fabric for the Car Seat Poncho has discontinued the Paisley print.  This means, so sadly, that once the current inventory of Paisley/Hot Pink ponchos are gone, there will be no more.

We are so bummed, because Paisley is such a joyful print (and a top seller).  Moms would tell me that it simply made a cold day warmer.  It was so cheerful and colorful, it made their girls smile just for the fun of wearing it -- even on the most dreary, slushy grey morning.

If you've always wanted one for your daughter, granddaughter, niece or favorite baby girl or toddler, don't wait.  As of today, there are fewer than 10 SMALL Paisley ponchos, and fewer than 20 MEDIUM/LARGE.

Great Review on

Great grade from
 The Car Seat Poncho got a/nother great review, this time on's "Baby's First Year" blog:
"When I first glanced at this product, I'll be honest and say I wasn't too sure about it. I am a New Englander, and the winters up here get beyond frigid.
Would the Car Seat Poncho really keep my baby or toddler warm? Closer inspection reveals a solid, "Yes!"
The reason being, this poncho is made out of not just one layer of fleece, but two layers of 400-weight fleece. The weight of the blanketed poncho traps warm air next to your child while you go out to the carseat.
The other features of this product that I find appealing over some of the other winter car seat accessories are:
  1. It works with both infant car seat carriers AND any 5-point harness. So if you are using a convertible car seat, this product will work for you.
  2. It prevents any layers of material from coming between your baby and the harness straps. The straps remain as close to your baby as possible at all times, unlike popular winter gear like the Bundle Me.
  3. It also can be used as warm weather wear. You get to your destination, and your child has the freedom to walk around and still keep warm."
Thanks to blogger Jennifer White, of  FYI: Unlike many other "product review" blogs, there was no "freebie" product given in exchange for a review.  Ms. White chose the Car Seat Poncho to review based on her own research and suggestions from her readers -- bona fide journalism!

Was there anything she left out of her great review?  Leave your two cents in the comment area for the article:
