In this video, Kitt Orloff explains how to properly install a child's car seat. Many parents aren't familiar with all the steps needed to install the seat properly. According to TheCarSeatLady.com, there are two different types of car seats; forward facing and rear facing. Which car seat you use is determined by the age, weight and height of your child.
According to Parenting-Ed.org, car crashes are the #1 preventable cause of death for children. And research shows that parents who secure their children in child safety seats are less distracted while they're driving. Because of fewer distractions, these parents have fewer car crashes. So see? There is no reason NOT to use a child safety seat and to install in correctly. Check with your local police and fire stations for community events that include a car seat safety check.
