Safety 1st Car Seat Giveaway Hosted By Confessions of a Messy Mama

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
