Safety 1st is now owned by Dorel Juvenile Group. The Safety 1st story began in the early ’80s when founder, Michael Lerner, pursued a business idea for safety signs for car windows including the original “Baby on Board” sign. Now Saftey 1st sells a multitude of baby safety items, baby monitors, strollers, car seats and more. Included in their product line is an infant car bed for newborns with low birth weight and special needs!
The Safety 1st Dreamride LATCH Infant Car Bed is new and improved and one of the only car beds that is a FMVSS213 approved special needs transportation system for infants with low birth weight. It was designed to give babies with respiratory concerns a safe way to get home from the hospital and start their journey with their families. The Dream Ride LATCH Infant Car Bed enables an infant with special needs to be positioned safely and comfortably in the car. With its standard features, this special needs car bed is sure to provide superior positioning, protecting your precious cargo.
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends that premature infants born prior to 37 weeks gestation are closely monitored for possible apnea, bradycardia or oxygen desaturation before leaving the hospital. If any of these conditions are detected, the infant should be positioned in a supine position (lying on their back) when traveling if recommended by their licensed physician. The Dream Ride LATCH Infant Car Bed is helping hospitals send infants with special needs home with their parents earlier. Safety 1st products, including the Dreamride LATCH Infant Car Bed, are designed to keep families moving forward.
