Are you buckling up baby right? We'll tell you how you can find out for free...but first a warning for parents with babies.

The warning involves clothing. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says it involves 600-thousand Carter's infant jumpsuits. The jumpsuits have a six inch ribbon that runs through the zipper pull tab.
The ribbon can detach and pose a potential choking hazard. The ribbons are either a solid color or have "Carter" printed on them. The jumpsuits either have a teddy bear, bunny, or puppy embroidery design on the front. If you have one, immediately remove the ribbon and throw it away. For more information call Carter's at 1-888-339-2129.

Do you know if your children are buckled up correctly? You can find out for free - courtesy of EMSA. Twice each month, safety experts will be on hand at EMSA's headquarters for free car seat safety checks....you can even get a free ice cream cone from Braums.

They will be there on Tuesday, February 6 and Tuesday, February 20 from 4 to 6 p.m. EMSA is located at 1417 N. Lansing in Tulsa.

If you have paging service from the now defunct T-S-R Wireless, we located their customer service office...for T-S-R customers to call...it is 1-201-947-5300.
