Make sure your children are protected in a car seat in Wichita Kansas by following these simple tips

Top Tips for Keeping Children Under 2 Safe in a Car Seat

As a parent all you want to do is keep your child safe. Follow these guidelines to help you ensure that your child is safe in the car.

  • The best way to keep your child safe is to keep them in a rear facing seat as long as possible. Before you change the seat rear facing your child should be at least 12 months or 20 pounds.

  • The chest clip should be adjusted at armpit level.

  • The shoulder straps should be positioned through the slots at or below your child’s shoulders.

  • When locking the car seat into the car you should use either the seat belt or the latch system but not both at the same time.

  • Make sure that the car seat is not expired. The expiration date should be stamped on the seat. A seat usually expires 6 years from the date manufactured.

  • If you buy a used car seat make sure you know the full history of the seat. Never buy a seat that has been in a car accident.

  • Make sure to have your car seat checked by someone that is certified to do so.
