Car Seat Giveaway

Buckle up every time you get in a car!  And make sure you children are in the RIGHT car seat for their age!

Travel Safety by Safety 1st Consumer Safety Expert Julie Vallese

The three most important things when choosing a car seat are:

·   One that fits your child

·   One that fits your car

·   One that you will use correctly every time

You can accomplish this by:

·   Have the car you will be using the seat in with you and try it out at the store.

·   If possible have your child with you at the time of purchase

·   Follow information in both the car seat manual and vehicle manual for installation

·   Attend a car seat check for assistance in proper installation and use from a certified car seat technician

New rules for car seats using LATCH require understanding of your car seat’s weight and child’s weight:

·   Car seats (after 2/27/14) are required to carry a label guiding on maximum weight limits for LATCH

·   The combined weight should not exceed 65 lbs

·   Look in the manual and label on the car seat to identify the weight of the seat

·   Look for a weight on the maximum weight for the child

·   Know your child’s weight

·   Combined weight of the seat and your child exceeds 65lbs? Install the car seat using the vehicle’s belt

One VERY LUCKY reader will win a Car Seat to keep the child in their lives safe for Holidays and every other day of theirs lives!   A BIG thank you to the sponsor, Safety 1st , and the host, Confessions of a Messy Mama
