Vehicle Safety

12th Nov 2013

Rear-facing or forward facing?  Is my child big enough for a booster?  When can my daughter or son sit in the front seat?

We get many questions about car seat safety. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of death in children and car safety is something we take very seriously.  With all the options out there and the changing recommendations for height/weight and age requirements who wouldn’t be confused?

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently developed the Car Seat Check app for iPhone users, which can help you choose the right car seat based on your child’s age and weight, provides customer reviews and even includes videos to help with proper installation.

Parents, remember to be good role models for your children and always buckle up!  Questions?  Just ask us!
