It is the law that all children under the age of twelve should be seated in the back seat. This is especially true if you have airbags in the front. After twenty pounds and after the first birthday, toddlers can use a forward facing seat until they reach approximately forty pounds or their ears reach the top of the car seat. Over forty pounds, a child must be in a seatbelt positioned booster seat. Your car seat belts should not be used by a child under the age of eight unless they are four feet nine inches tall.
A booster seat should be used until then. There are many different types of booster seats are available. Your child should be appropriately restrained at all times. Your child will not be ready to use regular seatbelts until the shoulder trap fits across the shoulder not the neck. The lap belt must fit across the hips and not his stomach. The car seat will have a label which will have the manufacturer, the address, and the phone number.
It will also show the name of the car seat. You must have this information to get a replacement. If there is no label on the seat do not purchase it. It could be a seat that was damaged in a car accident.
If you are purchasing the car seat second hand, inspect it thoroughly. Check all the belts for fraying, all fasteners for cracks, and the padding of the seat to be sure it is not ripped or torn.
Always check to see if there is a label on the seat, it will have the information you need if there is no manual available. Ask questions such as has this seat been in a crash?
If so, do not purchase it. It may look fine but its safety may have been compromised.
No matter what type of seat you purchase, and there are many, consider how much you can spend. If expense is a concern a convertible travel system maybe in order.
A rear-facing car seat can be used as a front facing car seat until the appropriate age. There is a base that remains in the car. Check out your options and consider what will be best as far as expenses are concerned. Do your research and determine what will be best for you and your child.
It sure does stand out and doesn't smell like everything else. Which reminds me that I will need to book my next appointment for early Jan I don't find it a young girls fragrance as many reviewers have said but I think it could be happily worn by a range of ages.
Always, the first concern should be the safety of your baby from day one. It is important to know what type of seat your vehicle will accommodate.
It is an overwhelming choice to make but begin looking for a car seat when you find out you are expecting. A well informed choice will keep your baby safe.
