baby /toddler alarm for car seat

Sad incident at Bart Station in Bay Area last week where a Dad forgot his 4 month old was in car, having thought he dropped him off at daycare and left him in car all day when his Mum found him at 5pm after not finding him at daycare. Theres an alarm in all cars if you don't put your seatbelt on but none for letting you know your baby or toddler is still in the car. We'd all like to think we would never do that but we are all human and make mistakes

So came across this baby and toddler car alarm and I'll also be passing onto my friends with kids.


Ordering ours today and praying for those poor folks.

Hereditary Spherocytosis

"In the life of the portly, inflexible spherocyte, the spleen is the villain."

wrt molecular Pathology of Hereditary Spherocytosis[HS].

Not often you hear such poetic license about HS.
