Pediatricians told of the mortal danger of children’s car seats for kids.
The American Academy of Pediatrics studied the statistics of child mortality in sleep for 2004-2014. It turned out, during this time, approximately 12 thousand babies died while sleeping. 3% of them died while sleeping in a sitting position. 63% of the deaths occurred while the baby was in the car seat.
Scientists have noted that often the chair was not used on purpose – not in the car. That is, the child was not transported in the vehicle and just laid there to sleep.
In 2% of cases children were killed while riding in a car. And more than 50% of cases associated with child car seats, happened at home in different situations.
– By the way, most often in toddlers death occurred when be looked out for by strangers, not parents who told the pediatrician Nicole Partic.
Second place went to a swing and sun loungers, as they die in the dream, 35% of kids. But the stroller is the safest remedy for lulling children as it recorded only 2% of cases.
The authors of the project urge people to use the car seat on purpose and not to endanger their children.
