👏👏👏 Washington is FINALLY updating their car seat laws!
Please keep in mind that these new laws indicate minimums: (1) Most convertible car seats can safely secure a child rear facing much longer than 2 years of age (check the height/weight restrictions of your seat and only turn your child after they have reached one of these limits).

See: https://csftl.org/harness-or-booster/ (3) The age requirement of 8-12years old or 4’9” with the belt fitting properly has been recommended as best practice by car seat safety professionals for a long time - the law is just catching up!
We are both so close to our goal weights for Washington in September!! We’ve been working our butts off, trying to keep each other motivated even though we are 4 hours apart. Having someone to do this thing with us SO much easier for me. I’m a lucky gal to have such great friends ❤️ *lj
Active Romex wiring that is not terminated is a major safety concern and should be addressed promptly. Both of these two wires were recently found near the ground and within reach of children. It's scary that the owners selling these homes either didn't know of the active wiring or didn't understand the hazardous conditions they had left exposed.
Approximately 1 billion people, of all ages, are currently affected by neurological disorders, with an estimated 6.8 million deaths that occur every year world-wide. This staggering statistical evidence illustrates the substantial impact of neurological disorders throughout the world. New evidence presents how hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is helping individuals regain neurological activity and functionality. For neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders, in addition to neurological injuries, HBOT provides the brain with increased levels of oxygen to help recover/repair brain tissue, proliferate the creation of new brain cells and improve cognitive functioning. Clinical studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for neurological conditions with the following:
Circulatory Pathways in the Brain
Improves Oxygenation to the Brain
Enhance Memory and Mental Performancee
Improve Brain Repair & Recovery with HBOT
Recovers & Repairs Damaged Brain Tissue
Develops & Regains Cognitive/Motor Functions
Attenuate Nervous System Inflammation with HBOT
Reduces Brain Swelling
Reduces Risk of Compromised Blood Flow to the Brain
Decreases Pressure within the Skull
Minimizes Oxidative Stress
Increase Regeneration of the Nervous System with HBOT
Stimulates the Creation of New Brain Cells
Promotes the Construction of New Brain Tissue
Facilitates the Formation of New Brain Connections
