As a parent you have many jobs, but one of the most important is keeping your child safe when riding in any vehicle, not just your own. Each year automobile accidents are responsible for thousands of children’s injuries and deaths. Using car seats and safety restraints properly can help prevent injuries, keep your children safe and save countless lives.
With so many car seat options on the market today, it’s no surprise that many parents, especially new parents, find it difficult and overwhelming to pick the right car seat or safety restraint for their children.
There are many factors to consider when choosing a car seat or restraint for your child, such as:
- Your child’s age
- Your child’s size (height and weight)
- Type of vehicle you drive
