Baby seat covers that cover up the back of a baby’s car seat can cause some problems with the seats, according to new research.
Car seat manufacturers are currently working on new and improved seats to protect babies from seat-to-seat collisions.
But according to a new study, those seats may also lead to a variety of other problems, including ear infections, a higher risk of falls and heart problems.
It’s the latest research to show that baby seats can be unsafe for infants and that a lack of knowledge can lead to the development of unsafe behavior.
The research was conducted by the University of Florida, the University at Buffalo, and the University Health Network, which includes the Cleveland Clinic, University of Michigan, and University of Pennsylvania.
Researchers analyzed data from 1,942 infants born between January 1, 2011 and October 31, 2012.
They compared the outcomes of each infant’s car seats and their parents’ car seats in an attempt to find the factors that might lead to injury or even death.
The researchers found that babies who had a baby seat with a foam or plastic covering that covers their back when they’re sitting down had a 9 percent higher risk for developing ear infections and a higher likelihood of a fall.
This was true even after taking into account the infant’s age, race, weight, and whether the child was wearing a seat belt.
According to the research, these infants were also less likely to be able to get a good fit on the car seat and were also more likely to fall in the carseat.
Another finding was that baby car seats with a plastic cover that covers the back when the child is sitting and the backside of the seat when the baby is standing had a 16 percent higher chance of developing ear infection and a 25 percent higher likelihood that a fall occurred.
Researchers also found that car seats made from foam or vinyl foam, which is made of polyurethane or polypropylene, had a 29 percent higher odds of developing an ear infection.
Finally, car seats that are made from vinyl foam or polyurestane, which has a synthetic material, had the highest risk of developing the ear infection, a 29.7 percent higher rate.
And while the researchers found the foam and vinyl foam cover was more likely for the baby to have ear infections when the parents were sitting, they didn’t find that the foam or the vinyl foam had a higher chance for an ear injury when the infants were standing.
As for heart problems, the researchers were able to track the heart rate of the babies in the study who had been tested for a heart condition at least once during their stay in the home.
One of the researchers, Dr. Christopher Cappelli, a professor of emergency medicine at the University Hospitals of Pittsburgh, said the research suggests that car seat manufacturers need to work with manufacturers to improve the way their products are designed.
“I think there needs to be a lot more education, better communication, and a willingness to share information with parents about the safety of car seats,” he said.
