Good idea. Get yourself one. It's hard work, but fun work.

Besides- your son would appreciate a little sister. Good luck.

You know, If I see a vehicle on the road with such a sticker then i'd too be circumspect when driving around it. No honking too.

However, i've been tramping Mumbai roads in various cars for the last 9 yrs or so and have yet to see such a sticker.

Hey Elf,

Maybe next time am at Yeor Hills at the Golden Swan club, shall buzz you to make sure you come across atleast one car with such a sticker & the relevant beauty within. :-)

Cheers mate.


PS : There are quite a few in Mumbai as i seem to bump into such parental folks more often than i imagined I would.!!!

I've seen plenty "Caution, Baby on Board" stickers though.

I see plenty of them in Bangalore. I have not seen the princess one.

I prefer 'Baby on Board' as I can reuse them irrespective of the future outcomes.

I dont know if the wording like "Caution : Little Angel/fairy/princess/prince inside" would be as effective, but...

I DEFINITELY THINK THAT HAVING A "CAUTION : BABY ON BOARD" SIGN MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

I do keep extra distance when following a car with a sticker like that on the highway.
I have never seen one in India till date though! Only seen a "caution : dogs on board"



Even if 1% of the public is a little more cautious when they see that sign (as can clearly be seen from this thread), its totally worth the small amount of money you invest in it in order to make it a little safer for your "llittle angel / princess / dude / devil".

We have a tendency to take things overboard, and while on the current topic, came across an Alto with the following sticker, this morning :

"Caution ! Cheeky Monkey on board".

Go ahead and put that sticker. Atleast the educated and aware people will take care. I normally don't honk much when I see such a sticker or see two wheeler where a mother pilion rider is holding a baby in her arms. But it amazes me to see how some mothers are holding their babies carelessly on two wheelers.
I also have seen one instance where a Fiero guy wanted to race with my Pulsar with a 6-7 year kid sitting behind. That kid was pretty afraid and held on tightly onto the rider. After noticing that, I myself slowed down and let the Fiero guy win the race. How egoistic are some people!!!

I keep a distance and avoid overtaking close to the car if I see such sticker on the rear windscreen. I am cautious not just for the car with the sticker but even with the 2 wheelers with babies on board.
Always wanted to get one for my car when we had our 1st baby. Hope to get one for the 2nd one which is due in a couple of months :-).

I have a Baby Onboard sticker......don't know whether it's made any difference to me. When people can't understand "STOP", "WAIT", "NO ENTRY"....do you think they'll figure out what "Baby Onboard" means?

Have a Baby on Board sticker for the road users who can read.

Have a "National Permit" on the windshield top and a "Horn O Tata K Please" on the rear bumper for the road users who can't.
