STUDY:
MISUSED CAR
SEATS CAN
TURN DEADLY
Car seats are vital to protect children
while traveling. But a new infant death
study underlines the need to follow the
seats' instructions and to use them only
for their intended purpose.
In a review of infant deaths that
occurred while children were sleeping
in sitting devices, researchers determined
that more than 60 percent of the deaths
were in car seats, and the car seats were
used as directed in less than 10 percent
of those cases.
"While car seats are important
when you're traveling with an infant,
it's best not to have the infant sleep
in the car seat when you're at home,"
says researcher Rachel Moon, MD, a
UVA Children's pediatrician. "The safest
place for a baby to sleep is on a firm,
flat surface."

WORKOUTS
THAT WORK

HIKING

Hiking might just be the perfect workout. Like walking, it requires little
equipment and almost no skill. But it offers a more comprehensive
workout than walking and can be customized for all ages and abilities.
A 155-pound adult will burn about 210 calories during a 30-minute,
moderate-intensity hike. Hiking on uneven terrain helps strengthen core
muscles and improve your balance skills. Elevation gains and walking in
sand or snow help you build cardiovascular strength. Plus, studies have
shown being in nature reduces stress and depression.
Keep these safety tips in mind before heading out on the trail:
Take a buddy or tell someone where you'll be hiking
3
and for how long.
3 Use trekking poles if you have balance issues or knee pain.
3 Don't forget to carry a fully charged phone.
Look back periodically, especially at turns, so you can
3
recognize your way back.
3 Bring plenty of water.
3 Wear sturdy, comfortable shoes designed for hiking.
