Child safety in a vehicle does not stop by just having a car seat for
your baby. Here are more tips in keeping your child safe in the car:
Make sure that the car seat you acquired meets federal safety and
crash performance standards. If you’ve inherited a car seat, make sure
that it’s not older than 6 years. It might already has essential parts
missing. Check the stamp of the car seat and call the manufacturer of
the seat to be sure.
When placing the seat in the car, make sure that it is tilted in the
correct angle (45 degrees). This will ensure that your baby’s head is
supported properly. Check if your child’s chin does not touch his
chest. This might block airway.
Check your local fire sttaion and have an inspection staff (with
national certification) check the installation of your car seat.
