The Importance of a 5 point harness

THE IMPORTANCE OF A 5 point HARNESS: Have you moved your child to a booster seat without a 5 point harness before they are 4 years plus 40 pounds.
Please watch this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azgBhZfcqaQ

The most dangerous car seat MISTAKES:

Moving a child less than 1 year PLUS 20 pounds to forward facing. Keeping them rear facing even to 18 months is better. If you child is 9 months and 25 pounds they must still be REAR facing. If your child is 15 months and 18 pounds they must still be REAR facing

Taking a child out of 5 point harness before they are 4 years PLUS 40 pounds. And the car seat must be TOP tethered into your car. Car seat belts can fail. The tether protects your child. The BRITAX car seat has a 5 point harness that goes to 65 pounds.

Leaving a child in a regular 5 point harness after 40 pounds. Only the BRITAX car seat harness can go beyond 40 pounds. Using a regular car seat with harness after 40 pounds put your child at risk for it breaking. If you child is over 40 pounds but under age 5 get the BRITAX car seat with stronger harness.

Taking a child out of a booster seat before 6 years PLUS 60 pounds (some states say 8 years PLUS 80 pounds). Actually it is recommended that a child stay in a booster seat until they are 4 foot 8 inches in order to have a regular seat belt fit them safely.

MyPreciousKid.com turns 5 years old!

May 2006 marks the 5th year anniversary of MyPreciousKid.com! I am so excited to see where this journey has taken me.

In May 2001 I started making personalized ID cards for families that home schooled their children or those with adopted children.

In 2002 I started producing do-it-yourself ID kits for parents. These kits provided safety for children while keeping their family information private. I also started a rep program allowing other parents to buy wholesale and sell retail in home classes and online.

As the years have gone by parents have asked for more product. We added Medical Release Cards, Luggage Tags, Pet ID cards, Adult ID kits and Chore Charts. Then as our internet presence increased other companies started approaching us about selling their products.

2005 brought more products including ID Bracelets, Shoe Tag Tags, Baby Sling and ID Scopes bring us to a line of 50 products. Our Google rank of 5 brought us to the number one and number 2 spot on Google for many of our key word phrases. We also added a wholesale program.

2006 brought the introduction of safe BABY GEAR such as shopping cart covers, potty training products, baby sign language, Taggies and more to bring us to 70 products.

Today we enjoy a brisk business at MyPreciousKid.com with 75 products and more coming. We currently have a number of products on sale and are looking at several new lines for the fall season.

I am thrilled and excited to see how far MyPreciousKid.com has come in 5 years. I am thankful for the many awesome customers, reps and wholesale clients who follow our passion of keeping children safe.

I had to order all the inventory. Then I had to find places to store all that inventory. Then I had to create a web page for each products which is about an hour each. In order to do it right and make search it is search engine optimized it takes time and planning. Then because that makes our line nearly 70 products I had to redo my categories and make new categories and an overall category page. Whew!!!!
