Physicians in Newfoundland and Labrador, with the assistance of retailers, provide a safer ride home for newborns at hospitals around the province. The NLMA presents an infant car seat to the first baby born in the New Year in each of the province’s hospitals that perform deliveries. The intent of the program is to encourage all parents to use approved car seats for their children right from the moment they leave hospital as newborns. To date, more than 295 car seats have been presented province-wide.

The NLMA thanks the retailers who generously donated seats over the years, including the Wal-Marts in Carbonear, Clarenville, Corner Brook, Gander, Grand Falls-Windsor, Labrador City, Marystown, Mount Pearl (for Port-aux-Basques), Stephenville and St. John's (Kelsey Dr. for the Health Sciences Centre and Aberdeen Ave. for St. Anthony), and Goose Home Hardware in Happy Valley-Goose Bay, as well as Crosstown Express 2008 Ltd., Eastern Express and Day & Ross Sameday-Right-O-Way couriers, who ship the seats to St. Anthony and Port-aux-Basques. And, of course, a special thank you goes to the physicians and hospital staff across the province who assist in coordinating the presentations.
