Between family outings, sports practices, play dates, and school, we spend a lot of time with our families traveling in the car. Be sure you are keeping your little one safe while riding in the car by checking out these five safe car seat tips:
Many states have specific laws regarding the use of car seats or boosters and whether a child may sit in the front seat. It is important to learn your state’s laws and check the laws of states you travel within. Because every child grows and develops differently, your child may need a car seat or to sit in the back beyond your state’s rules.
As a general rule, a child should ride in a car seat until he or she is tall enough to sit properly in the car without the car seat. Children should be able to sit in the seat without slouching, so that their shoulders are rested against the back of the seat. They should be able to sit with their knees bent with feet on the floor. Seat belts should be properly worn across the shoulder and should be tight across the lap. And remember, always put safety first!
