I Spy With My Little Eye...Car Seat Safety!

JPMA and Baby Safety Zone Safety Mom Amy C., shares her information and advice on ensuring that your child's car seat is properly installed. 

Are your child restraints properly installed in your car? Whether you have an infant seat, car seat or booster seat, make sure they are safely secured. Believe it or not, 7 out of 10 children are not properly buckled in, which leads to a great risk of injury if involved in a car crash. Not sure where to turn? Just look (or ask) around. I found this car seat check schedule hanging up in the waiting room of the pediatrician’s office while I was playing “I Spy” with my daughter. You can also check with your local baby store for any upcoming car seat check events or visit seatcheck.org for an inspection locator helper. I found 65 inspection sites just in my area when I searched under my zip code! 

Don’t forget to get any new seats checked when your kids outgrow the current ones.
