We're all proud of our children but 'Baby on Board' signs in cars aren't just for bragging to the world about our little darlings, they serve an important function! The point of these signs is that should you suffer the misfortune of having an accident in your car, anyone coming to your assistance will be alerted to the fact that they need to be aware that there is a baby at the scene of the accident. For this reason, you should only display the sign when you really are traveling with your baby or children, if you use the car regularly without the children then get into the habit of taking the sign down.
London Underground give 'Baby on Board' badges away for another purpose. Expectant mother's who are pregnant but not yet showing can request a 'Baby on Board' pin badge to alert other train passengers that they are pregnant in the hopes that they may be able to take a seat. If you are pregnant and traveling on the underground then request one of these badges from a ticket office. If you aren't pregnant and see a fellow passenger wearing one of these badges, please look after them and ensure that they can have a seat!
