Car Seat Facts

In the United States, car accidents are the number-one cause of death among children ages 4 to 12 and the number-two cause of death among children ages 1 to 4.  I don’t mention that to scare you but this is a serious topic!  The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), among others, show that the best way to decrease the risk of injury and death for children is to properly install and use the appropriate car seat for your child.  Easy enough, huh?

Surprisingly, many people don’t know how to install a car seat properly or know the mechanics involved with their car seat and their car.    Thankfully Cars.com offers free tips and suggestions  by Certified child passenger safety technicians who conducted hands-on tests of different cars Latch systems and here you can check your vehicle’s ability to accommodate different types of car seats.

    Lol, you know what I cleaned my child car seat yesterday and I was amazed at how many my little pony was hidden. My husband and I always check our child car seat to make sure that is buckle good and nothing has changed. The safety of our child is very important, although sometimes I am more paranoid than my husband lol.

    Car seat safety is so important. I took a class when I was pregnant and I am glad I did. There was so much I didn’t know. It blows my mind how many people don’t care enough about the seat their child uses. I always check mine to make sure everything is fitting properly.
