What is it about car seats that parents think they can just slack off and get away with no research, buy the cheapest of the cheap and celebrate the day their child can turn around to face forward?
I hear a lot of people say, "Well I'm a safe driver." I don't care how safe you think you are, what about the millions of other people driving around on the road? Teenagers texting, business people talking on their "smart phones" and drinking coffee, soccer moms late for practice...there are so many distractions out there, even for the safest driver.
You would think parents would want their precious cargo buckled in as safe as possible but many people don't even bother reading the manuals that come with the seats!
My friend Danielle at Mama Dani's Musings worked with a Certified Car Seat Safety Technician to come up with a 4-part series about Car Seat Basics, check it out, read all 3 posts and ask all the questions you could possibly have on the 4th post.
I guarantee you will read something that you did not know before and your kids will travel safer because of it.
