Easy & Frugal Child in Carseat Reminder DIY Hack

This past weekend another story broke about a child dying after being forgotten in a hot car. This particular child was the son of a firefighter. A person who has signed up as a career to help save people. A person who goes into burning buildings to save lives.

I am one of the most forgetful persons on the planet. I have shown up to work without my badge or laptop. I have gone on vacation and forgotten my toothbrush. I forget things on a daily basis. Important things. Arguably a child is different but I still have a great fear that this could happen to me.

Because of that fear, I have spent many restless nights while I was pregnant thinking of how I could avoid this. Here is what I came up with.

What you will need: Bright Starts Lots of Links {2-3 sets}

Step 1. Make a long chain out of the links.

Step 2. Attach one end to your carseat or somewhere in the backseat where you child cannot reach it.

Step 3. When the child is in the carseat, take the other end and hook it somewhere in the front of the car . In my case I hook it to the gear shift.
