WATCH: THIS Is Why You Never Put A Child Wearing A Winter Coat Into A Car Seat. Did You Know?

Many of us believe that if we strap our babies in all snug and cosy that they will be safe, however, the awful reality is that the huge winter coats we put them in to keep them warm can actually be more harm than good in the space of a car.
Because winter coats are often big, they leave a dangerous space between the belt and the body of the child.

God forbid, a crash was to ever occur, the coat can often prevent the effectiveness of the belt. Should you come to a sudden stop or jolt the space will be compressed and this negates the effectiveness of the car seat straps.
Although we know it is important to keep your child warm in winter, we would suggest just using the heaters in your car to regulate the temperature.

Or if your car doesn’t have heater, instead of having your child wear the coat, remove it, and get them to use it as a blanket.

The video below will provide you with more information and reveals the dangers of strapping your child in his or her car seat while wearing a big thick winter jacket.

We think everyone needs to see this time of year, with icy and blustery conditions making it particularly dangerous on the roads, you could save someones life by SHARING this post with your friends and family on Facebook. Please pass it on.

Removing the jacket could prevent serious harm to your child, should an incident occur.

Stay safe people, and have a happy holidays! All the best.

10 photos which will convince you that penguins are totally awesome

Penguins have to be one of the cutest animals on the planet. Fluffy, plump and often clumsy, it’s all but impossible for these unique birds to evoke anything other than positive emotions — and those photographers lucky enough to see them in their natural habitat regularly reminds us of this fact.

But penguins have also shown themselves to be very caring parents, and it’s also a real pleasure to observe how they defend, teach and keep their little one’s warm

The Rock Shares First Photo Of Baby Girl With Touching Advice To Fathers

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson shared the first photo of his baby girl, Jasmine, just days after he and girlfriend Lauren Hashian welcomed her on Wednesday, December 16.

In the photo, little Jasmine is seen lying on her daddy’s chest as he stares down at her.

“Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying [sic] on daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning,” he wrote on Instagram on Sunday. “Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe… Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday.”

Johnson, who recently shared an important message for all dog owners, now had some wise advice for all future fathers. Aside from telling them to aim to be better, he also encouraged them to be there for their child’s mother.

“I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible,” Johnson wrote. “Now don’t get me wrong boys, it wasn’t like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike… but as men, it’s a miracle we should witness because it’ll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman.”

See the beautiful photo below and please SHARE his special words!

Christmas came early! Within minutes of being born she was laying on daddy’s chest. And being a grateful man takes on a whole new meaning… Thank you guys so much for the awesome congratulatory wishes and love you’ve been sending @laurenhashianofficial and myself. We’re extremely grateful. Kinda crazy but in this cool and powerful skin to skin bonding moment with my newborn baby Jasmine, I had just one wish I asked the universe… Give me the strength to be a better man today than I was yesterday. If I can accomplish that, then I’d have a good shot at being a great father. To all you young men out there who will be fathers one day, the goal of “being better” will never steer you wrong. Trust me I’ve been down this road. Something else that’ll never steer you wrong is “walking thru the fire” with your baby’s mama. I was right there during labor, helping her breathe, every highly intense contraction, every second of pain, right there watching the actual birth, cutting the cord and wiping the tears. Incredible. *(Now don’t get me wrong boys, it wasn’t like I was at the end of the table, squatting like a catcher waiting for the fastball to come down the pike..😂 but as men, it’s a miracle we should witness because it’ll give you a whole new respect for the strength and beauty of a woman). Again, THANK YOU guys so much for all the love during this blessed time. I always say I’m a lucky dude because I’ve got the greatest fans in the world – and it’s true. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your families from ours.

Celtic Thunder Has Fans In Tears When They Sing “Hallelujah”

Iwould bet you’ve heard this song 100 times in your lifetime, maybe more, but after hearing this version, you may never hear it the same again!

Leonard Cohen’s iconic and eternally beautiful song, “Hallelujah”, has been covered by everyone from this singing clown to Jon Bon Jovi and everyone in between… And for good reason. To me, it’s easily one of the most incredible songs ever written and its simple, yet powerful lyrics seem to only get better with time. This song can even be performed in another language, like when this brother surprised his sister with a performance on her wedding day, and it’s still gives me chills.

In the following video, we hear “Hallelujah” performed by the one and only Celtic Thunder. No matter if you love Irish music or not, this band from Dublin never fails to disappoint, especially when they take on this Leonard Cohen classic. If you’re not familiar with Celtic Thunder, they’re a group of about 5-6 men who are known for their theatrical stage presence and they sell out concerts worldwide.

There’s something about the following performance that just gave me chills, and as you can see from the audience members crying their eyes out, I wasn’t the only one who was moved.

This song is really something special. Please go ahead and SHARE it with someone you care about on Facebook!

3-Year-Old Interrupts Wedding For One Adorably Weird Reason

Hannah and Ben Lienert were having their wedding ceremony in Barossa Valley in Southern Australia. Naturally, their 3-year-old son, Hudson, would be there. However, something tells us that Hannah and Ben had no idea he would steal the show with a single phrase.

Just as Hannah and Ben were doing their nuptials, Hudson interrupted to say, “I need to poo!” The entire wedding party was in stitches. We’ve seen bored toddler ring bearers and flower girls fall asleep at weddings, but nothing quite like this before. Fortunately, his Aunt Gemma was there to escort the little guy to the bathroom and address his emergency.

“Everybody cracked up including the bridal party… it made us both relax a little bit, too, as it certainly broke the ice!” Hannah told BuzzFeed’s Michelle Rennex. It may not have been the speech anyone expected from the couple’s beloved son, but it sure loosened things up. Hudson’s advice to other little boys at weddings out there? “Do a poo before.” Classic!

“Children and weddings don’t always mix, but they sure know how to make them memorable,” Hannah said on YouTube. We agree, everyone is definitely going to remember that moment forever.

Please SHARE if Hudson totally made you crack a smile today!

Can You Find The Hidden Panda Bear?

Everyone loves panda bears; their cute little faces along with their intricate fur coloring make them one of the most interesting animals on the planet. And though they may be endangered, humans are doing everything to make sure that these beautiful animals survive into the next century!

Inspired by the chilly season and the overall cuteness of these adorable creatures, artist Gergely Dudás came up with a fun little “awareness test” to see just how quick your abilities are at uncovering something that is hidden.

Hidden amongst dozens and dozens of snowmen, Dudás hid just one little panda bear alongside them all!

While some people are claiming to have found the panda nearly instantly, others are having a bit more trouble. While some people online are pointing out the pieces of clothing, hats, and other small items hidden all over, they just can’t seem to uncover the cute panda!

Check out the drawing below, and let us know how long it took you to find the hidden panda! But please, don’t spoil the secret for everyone else!

Watch Grandma’s Priceless Reaction To The Ultimate Adoption Surprise

It was an ordinary day for Eva, who spent a recent Sunday afternoon in her Franklin, IN home. Suddenly, she heard a knock at the door. It was her son and daughter-in-law, who came home from Hawaii where they were both stationed. Since 2008, Miranda and Donny have been a dual Air Force family.

But Miranda and Donny didn’t arrive empty-handed. Little did Eva know, she was about to discover that not only was she a new grandmother, but she was about to meet her newly adoptedgranddaughter for the very first time! As it turned out, Miranda and Donny recently adopted a little girl named Melissa Faith, a.k.a Lily, after beginning the adoption process in October of 2015 . “We chose not to tell our families due to so many unknowns,” Miranda told WTHR news. “We wanted to protect our hearts and theirs. We were taking a huge leap of faith. Once the baby Lily was officially placed with us, to become our daughter, we decided that it was not the type of news to be shared over the phone.”

For nearly 10 days, Donny hid the holiday secret from his mom before they flew home to surprise her. In the video below, prepare to be delighted by Grandma Eva’s unbelievably stunned and over-the-moon reaction. It’s seriously the best.

Please SHARE this amazing moment with your friends on Facebook, and spread the love!
