Car Seat Safety
There’s more to car seats than just buying one.
Before you left the hospital with your newborn, the nurses checked to make sure you had a car seat. After that – you’re on your own. Without realizing it, many parents have a car seat that meets all safety standards but they have it installed incorrectly. Or they are unintentionally using a car seat that’s too old. Don’t fall into these common mistakes. Here are a few helpful links from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration:
