**CLOSED** GIVEAWAY! SnugZee Baby Car Seat Head and Neck Support pillows! 6 possible ways to enter!




If you've had a baby in the past 5 years or so, you've probably been pretty appalled by the insufficiency of the neck supporters that come standard in car seats. They allow the baby's head to slump onto his chest, which not only looks terribly uncomfortable, but it may give him difficulty breathing. A Snugzee set allows the baby to sit comfortably with an open airway, and being more comfortable in the car generally means a quieter car ride.

This is what the SnugZee Baby Company says about their product:
"SnugZee is the only effective remedy for baby head and neck instability available
on the market to date, that won't compromise the safety of the car seat.
A dual-purpose device, pillow support cushions can be removed and strap cover pads left in place prevent harness straps from irritating baby's delicate skin.
2-in-1 design is easy to affix and remove pillows support cushions as necessary. No re-threading of car seat harness straps required."


The website also explains why neck support is so important:
"Neck support is crucial for young babies during the first few months because it is during this time that their skeletal systems experience the majority of it's maturity.
Newborns do not have sufficient strength in their necks to hold their heads upright without assistance. Their heads are inclined to flop forward or sideways, particularly if their car seat is too upright. When a young baby's head flops forward she runs the risk of compromising her ability to breathe effectively, it is essential to prevent this. Additionally, in the event of a serious car accident if the infant does not have adequate neck support, the force of the accident could potentially cause considerable neck injury or in some cases brain damage."

BRAIN DAMAGE, folks. We're getting serious here.

This is how SnugZee is different:
"The rainbow shaped pillows that are currently available on the market are placed behind your baby's head. Consequently, this actually works against supporting your baby's head in an upright position by forcing her head down and forward. Any device that goes in between baby and car seat compromises the effectiveness of the harness system and could prove disasterous in the event of a crash."

That was my son, Jasper, shortly after he came home from the hospital. Do you see all that space around him? I sat in the back of the car with him and held his head in my hand because his neck was flopping down so badly. Of course, he was a very very tiny little 5 pounder when we were headed home, but that doesn't mean my almost 9 pounder one year later was any safer on his first car ride!

Now that's Jasper sporting his cute little SnugZees at almost 3 months old. He's much more comfortable here! He would settle in and fall asleep, and I had no worries about whether or not his little neck would snap. There's just no other way to ride!

Now, I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that if you have a child that weighs under 30 lbs, you want a SnugZee for him or her! And because the lovely folks at SnugZee know that you, my loyal readers, care about the safety of your baby, they are giving me one to give away to you today!

  40. Gavin fell asleep in his carseat today. His little head was cocked to the side (which looked SO uncomfortable BTW) & I thought, "Man, I need a SnugZee."
