FROM NBC: Although babies must be strapped into their car seats when they're on the road.. A new study suggests that's the only place the seats should be used for extended periods of time.
The problem, according to experts at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center, is when caregivers lift the infant carriers out of the car, and then place them on counters or soft surfaces, where they can fall.
More than 87-hundred infants are taken to the emergency room each year because of injuries sustained when their car seats fall from high places or onto couches where they can suffocate.
I don't remember ever putting the car seat on anything but the floor. Maybe it's because I have two other kids and I don't trust them not to knock the car seat off the table, etc. What do you guys think about this? Close to 9,000 kids end up in the ER because their parents put the car seat in an unsafe spot? I am surprised.
