Dreambaby Bump Belt Review (@dreambabysafety, #dreambabysafety, #HolidayGiftGuide)
Offering superior seat belt comfortand added protection for both expectant mother and child, while driving, thisDreambaby® Bump Belt™ gives real peace of mind!
Recently selected for a TOP CHOICE award by the prestigious USA based Creative Child Magazine, the 2013 version of the Dreambaby® Bump Belt provides even more safety and comfort. A most fabulous feature is the NON-SLIP DOTS, to further prevent the Dreambaby® Bump Belt™ and seatbelt from slipping up over your bump, ensuring your seat belt stays in place, whether you’re a driver or passenger.
Car travel has its risks. All accidents and minor incidents can be a problem for anyone but if you’re pregnant it’s doubly dangerous as a seat belt can exert extreme pressure against the abdomen, potentially damaging the uterus and resulting in injury and even miscarriage. If you or the driver is forced to break suddenly or you experience a low speed impact from behind, you can be pushed forward with unforgiving force. Accident statistics confirm that unborn children can be harmed when the seat belt is positioned incorrectly over the mother’s abdomen. Internationally, it is now standard practice for obstetricians and GPs to advise pregnant women to wear seatbelts under their ‘baby bumps’ as opposed to across their abdomens. The addition of aDreambaby® Bump Belt™ with the specially designed non-slip dot surface can certainly prevent the lap strap from riding up, therefore reducing the risk of injury to the unborn child.
Furthermore tests conducted at the Qinetiq Centre for Human Sciences Impact Test Facility have demonstrated that the Bump Belt™ is effective in encouraging Mothers to position and maintain the lap portion over the hips rather than the abdomen, and effective without affecting the structural integrity of the seat belt.
The new Dreambaby® Bump Belt™ is suitable for use for expecting mothers from two months pregnant right until the baby is born.
There are so many things to think about when you are pregnant. As moms, even before we technically become moms, our first instinct is to protect our unborn child. The Dreambaby Bump Belt is something that probably never would have occurred to me, unless a horrible accident made it too late to think about!
The felt basically protects your unborn child from injury while driving by keeping the seatbelt from going directly across your belly. And as a bonus, it adds a little cushion underneath you for some much needed added comfort!
The belt was super easy to install. I actually did it without the directions (my preferred way of doing things) and then just double checked to confirm I had done it correctly!
First you just lay it on the seat and connect the straps around the back of the seat and latch them together and adjust according to size.
Once you sit in the seat, you simply attach the two velcro sides to your buckled seat belt to keep it below your beloved baby bump so that in the event of an accident, the pressure is on your lap and not your baby!
The bump belt was super easy to install and use and gave me that added peace of mind when I’m driving that I’m doing everything I can to protect my unborn child.
All moms have an ingrained instinct to protect their baby and this would make a great gift this holiday for the expectant moms out there!
