This isn’t good!
A survey of 2,396 U.S. mothers with kids under the age of two found that ten percent said they were involved in a car crash while driving with their baby. That’s over three times higher than the normal rate found among the general population.
We are very disturbed by these numbers! Especially for those defenseless babes that are in the back seat!!! That’s so dangerous!
Here’s what one editor said in regards to the study:
“While we expect new moms to feel exhausted, we were shocked by their lack of focus while driving, especially when their baby or toddler is in the car. The combination of fatigue and distraction is a perfect storm where safety is concerned.”
We hope ALL of the moms out there will make sure they’re looking out for their own well being and the well being of their child!!
And if you’re tired–then take a day off and rest up! Your kid will thank you later!!
