CAR SAFETY FOR INFANTS: EFFECTIVENESS OF PRENATAL COUNSELING

In a pediatric office setting, car safety counseling was provided to 16 primigravida women during a prenatal pediatric interview. A control group of 19 women received no counseling during a similar interview. Forty-two percent of noncounseled mothers and 69% of counseled mothers were using a safe infant restraint system at the six-week well-child visit. /HSRI/
