Car seat safety has been on the forefront of my mind a lot recently. We recently had a horrific traffic accident in Phoenix in which a little boy survived simply because his car seat was installed properly. Which got me to thinking about whether or not Jackson's car seat is installed the correct way. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has declared that the week of September 19-25 is Child Passenger Safety Week and there's been a lot of coverage on this. It's estimated that 3 in4 parents do not properly install their child's car seat, which dramatically affects your child's safety in the event of an accident. Car crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 3 to 14. Do you know how to install your child's car seat correctly? I don't! The NHTSA website has a seat inspection station locator where you can find a site near you that will check the installation of your child's car seat to make sure it's installed properly. They also have videos on how to install a LATCH car seat and a list of the highest-rated car seats. I'm definitely going to referring to this list when we invest in Jackson's convertible car seat! Right now the top rated car seats are the Graco MyRide 65, the Safety First Complete Air, and the First Years True Fit Premiere. They have also made the recommendation that children rear-face until at least two years old. What do you think of that?
