Car Seat Safety Is Your First Job

Becoming a new parent can be overwhelming and keeping your child safe is the most important job in your new role. Babies are particularly vulnerable in the event of a crash, so taking your time to choose the right car seat is one of the first things that you should do.

First off, buying a used car seat is a bad idea. Standards change as new information becomes available, and you have no idea if a used car seat has something wrong with it that you may not know until it is too late. It is always best to buy a new car seat that is up to date with current regulations.

It is not enough to buy the best car seat, you must also understand how to install it correctly. Hospitals will often provide full instructions on how to use the car seat properly before you leave, so be sure to ask.
