National Heat Awareness Day is observed each year on the last Friday in May. Heat is one of the leading weather killers in the United States resulting in numerous fatalities each year. Unfortunately, many of these deaths are children. Approximately 40 children die in hot cars each year from heat-related deaths after being trapped inside motor vehicles.
Spring has definitely sprung! When there is a change of season, there is often the possibility of change in routines, from switching up who takes baby to daycare to bringing baby along for more errands. All of us recognize that a child should never be left unattended in the vehicle, but changes in routine are often the most sighted reason for accidentally leaving a child in the car.
I appreciate that it provides valuable information while keeping a light-hearted and 'fun' feel. It's a great community and way to interact with other parents. BSZ is also great about remembering us dads too in posts, blogs, etc.
