WHALE car seat identifier

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Do you use the WHALE car seat identifier cards? I have them all filled out and ready to go into my carseat, but I am wondering how many people know about them? I hadn't heard of them until I went to a carseat safety fair recently.

Enlighten us.

well that answers my question

so it is a piece of cardstock about 2X5 that you write down the child's critical information and attach a current picture of the child. You then tape this to the underside of the carseat. Also you attach a sticker to your car window and bumper that has the logo "WHALE" which is suppose to alert emergency workers that this child has information attached to his/her carseat. This is in the unfortunate event that the adult(s) driving the car is unconscious. It sounds good, but I got the feeling it wasn't something well known yet?

I've never heard of it either, but it sounds like a good idea. I wonder how many emergency personnel have heard of it though and would recoginze the WHALE logo for what it is.

We've got the children's names and date of births on the carseats and ICE numbers, but that's it.

I haven't heard of WHALE, but around here you can pick up a sticker kit from the public libraries. The stickers have lines for all the important data & you stick it on both sides of the carseat.

I haven't heard of that either. My car seat has a place to put emergency information on the seat.

The firefighters and paramedics around here are trained to look for them. I was told to always keep it mostly under the cover, sticking out enough to be found but hidden enough so a passerby can't get your child's info.
