As part of Baby Safety Month, this series will be on the importance of car seats—all the ways they can keep a child safe, how to properly install them, the different types of car seats, and much more!
The safety of a child should take precedence over anything else for a parent, and one such way to ensure this safety is through the proper usage of car seats. The proper usage of car seats can work to prevent the death of a child if the worst case scenario of an accident were to occur. According to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), during 2014 602 children, from the age of 12 and younger, died in motor vehicle crashes, and of these children who died, 34% were not buckled up.
So, many parents already understand the importance of car seats, but how can they go about choosing the correct one? Finding the right car seat can be overwhelming for parents with the variety that is currently available in the market. This guide will seek to alleviate this by providing some basic information on car seats.
