  7 Things You Must Know About Car Seats

Posted by: admin @ 10:34 am

Everybody knows that car seats are extremely vital in helping us keep our little ones protected on the road. Many studies show that car seats minimize the risk of fatal injury by 71 percent for infants and 54 percent for toddlers. The problem is they are only helpful when they are used correctly. In a recent study it showed that 8 out of every ten infant and toddler car seats were either not installed or used properly.  You would not want that to happen to you.

  1. The two most common mistakes that parents make when it comes to car seats is that they do not secure the seat tight enough to their car and they don’t make the straps tight enough. The car seat must be so secure that it shouldn’t even be able to move an inch in any direction.When it comes to tightening the shoulder straps, pull them till they are very snug. Make sure that only one of your fingers fit between the straps and your child’s collarbone.

  3. The best place to put your child’s car seat is the center of the back seat because in case of a crash it will not take a direct hit.
  4. You know it’s time to switch from a rear facing seat to a forward facing seat either when she weighs more than about 30-35 pounds or she’s too tall for it.
  5. People think that if they spend more on the car seat it’s a safer one but this is false. The more expensive ones may come with added features but all car seats must meet certain federal safety standards. If used properly every seat will provide excellent protection. You should get a car seat that fits in your car and that you’ll be able to use it correctly every time you drive.
  6. After you install your child’s car seat make sure to review the car seat’s instructions. Even though you think it was put in correctly it would still be wise to go to a safety child’s inspection station to make sure.
  7. If you see your newborn’s head flopping around make sure the car seat is at about a 45 degree angle, but when your baby can support her neck herself,  you can lift her.
  8. Before you put your child into a used car seat make sure it’s not older than six years. Most manufactures are placing expiration dates between six and seven years. Be sure to find out if it was ever in a crash even if you don’t see any damage. You will also need the model number to call the manufacturer to make sure that that model number was not recalled.

Have a safe trip!
