Two thumbs up for Safe Start Baby

Filed Under:

As this month draws to a close (already - can you believe it?), I want to thank the January sponsor of the website and the monthly e-newsletter, Safe Start Baby. Kudos to them for subsidizing my work this month, which results in free info and resources for you, the reader!

In case you don't own a copy of the first edition of DC BABY: A Handbook for Parenting In (& Around) the Capitol City, here's an excerpt of my review, based on literally dozens of unqualified, first-hand recommendations from parents who have been happy customers:

"Safe Start Baby gets great reviews from DC mamas. The company does home assessment, professional installation, and safety product sales in NoVa, suburban Maryland, and the District. They also offer private and group Red Cross-authorized CPR classes. Safe Start Baby is a member of the International Association for Child Safety and is a dessignated trianign provider by the National Safety Council.

Michele Spahr at Safe Start Baby is a real pro, not a pushy salesperson, and will help you prioritze what you need and what you can afford. On the horison: Child safety seat inspection and installation by the company's child passenger safety technicians, who will travel to your home or office to do a thorough assessment.

A gift certificate to Safe Start Baby makes for a shower gift that will continue to be used long after junior outgrows those newborn onesies. It's also a nice option for grandparents who want to treat the new family to a truly helpful present they can't and won't refuse.

If you host a "Safe Start Party" in your home with friends and neighbors - a babyproofing educational seminar led by Michele - you earn a free consultation for yourself (a savings of about $75)."
