Now that we have discussed a little bit about the car seat itself, let’s go ahead and talk about some of the things that you, as a parent can really keep tabs on and make sure that your child is safe. The first thing that you need to do is make sure that you test your car seat for safety. This means that you want to make sure that it is very durable and will be able to sustain in an accident.
Next, you want to make sure that you put it in correctly – this is a huge part of what is wrong with the car seat safety area … most people have no idea how to put a car seat in. Luckily, if you drop by your local fire department, they can actually help teach you the right way to put in a car seat.
Putting in a car seat correctly is the most important thing and if a certified fire fighter shows you how to put one in … make sure you listen!
