We came up with a how-to guide that’s easy to read and understand, and allows you to be sure you’re going to be bringing baby home safe and sound.
No matter what type of vehicle you have, it’s important to make sure you read the fine print and directions for all car seats. Reading the instruction manual and the part of your vehicle’s owner’s manual that talks about car seat installation can actually save lives. As scary as it is, one strap in the wrong place, or one incorrectly secured base can lead to an unbelievably devastating accident that can be prevented.
After you make sure you’ve read the instructions and the vehicle’s owner’s manual, figure out if the car seat needs to be installed via the lower anchors of the LATCH system, or if it needs the seatbelt to secure it in place.
Then, put the car seat in the back seat of your vehicle, and for a newborn, make sure the car seat is facing toward the back end of the vehicle. It should not be placed to the baby can look out the front window. The car seat must be secured and tightly in place so that it does not move side-to-side or front-to-back more than 1 inch.
Make sure to read the car seat directions as to when you should switch to a larger car seat, or make adjustments to fit a larger child. As children grow up, the car seat can be switched to face the front of the vehicle. While it’s always a good idea to have a car seat, it’s necessary to know that it’s secured and you know how to fix it if it becomes unsecured because there’s nothing worse than an avoidable accident.
