Yes, leaving your young child in the car alone is a serious offense. If you see a small child alone in a car call 911 and CPS.

Thanks for posting this reminder.
I was just reading about another young baby who died when left in the car by the Mom. Such an awful tragedy, no one ever thinks can happen to them but somehow it does. Especially if there is a change in your daily routine- you don't usually drop her off to the babysitter but today you have to. Set your phone to alarm 5 minutes after you expect to arrive at your typical destination, make the reminder "check on child." Ask your childcare providers to call you if your child does not show up at the regular time.
Absolutely put your purse/briefcase in the back of the car with the child. Something else you can do, put a baby-sized stuffed animal in the carseat- when you put the child in the carseat, put the stuffed animal in front with you as another reminder.
