Are you a new mom or mom-to-be? If so, you’re in luck! Baby safety expert to the stars, Brad Mattarocci joined me for an interview this week to dish on the must have baby products every new mom needs!
Candace Rose: Do you have any advice for first time moms, or women who find themselves pregnant after several years?
Brad Mattarocci: “Absolutely. The best advice would be when you’re getting ready to buy baby products or gear and what not that you think about your lifestyle- if it’s going to remain active, if you have two children or are going to have two children, if you’re going to be doing any traveling to see relatives. And also the climate that you’re living in right now- it’s a cold weather climate or has the seasons like out here in California.”
Candace Rose: What are some popular baby products that could be considered dangerous when used incorrectly?
Brad Mattarocci: “Well, most baby products could be considered dangerous if you’re not using them as they’re designed. You should really pay attention to the warning labels and make sure that you read and understand the products manual as well as the vehicle owners manual, if you’re talking about a car seat.”
Candace Rose: Can you tell us about the newest products on the market that have the latest technology?
Brad Mattarocci: “Well, the newest products on the market as far as car seats go is our Baby Trend Inertia Infant car seat, it has rigid latch anchors that actually snap into the 2002 or newer vehicles that have built-in latch anchors. And it has a controlled motioned base that actually moves in the event of an accident and cradles the baby, and catches them in decelerates the crash energy, keeping the baby super safe. It also has a movable head rest that actually moves so you don’t have to re-thread the harness. It’s super convenient for the family.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share with us?
Brad Mattarocci: “Well, the main thing that I’d like on safety tips as I mentioned before is always read the manuals, understand the warning labels- they’re there for a reason and never leave your children unattended.”
Candace Rose: Where can we go for more information?
