Your Baby's Car Seat
The car seat is an accessory you will need to buy for your baby even before his/her birth. It is crucial that your baby’s first ride from hospital until home is in a car seat, and later on all his/her car rides will also be only in his car seat!
While riding a car with your baby inside, the most important job you have as a parent is keeping your child safe; this is why the car seat is a must!
Knowing that you’ll find different kinds of car seats, you should choose the right one for your baby according to his/her age and weight, and make sure that it can be perfectly installed in your car.
Parents often get confused when it comes to decide what the baby should face while sitting in his car seat. Well, you have to know that car seats for infants should be placed facing the rear, because in a head-on collision the muscles of the neck of an infant are unable to adequately support the head as it violently lurches forward. These muscles become strong enough at about two years of age and this is the perfect time to turn the car seat around. One thing to pay attention to is that the rear-facing car seats should never be used on the front seat if there is an active airbag in the car!
Keep your baby’s trips always safe!
