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! Enter below.
