Latch it up


Did you know that there is free help for us to make safe choices about car seats and to help us use car seats properly for maximum safety? I previously blogged about this but if you missed it here is very important information.
If you are a new parent or like me that I have not used a car seat in years, get your questions answered. Times have changed are technology has gotten better and better. There are so many reasources for us to use.
Check out Child Car Safety. The Ad Council and the NHTSA have created this site with all the resources parents need to keep their smallest passengers safe. Find your local inspection station, watch instructional videos, and even take a fun quiz!
NHTSA has a Facebook page where parents can learn about everything from LATCH to locating inspection offices.
On Twitter an actual safety expert mans the @ChildSeatSafety account. They answer any questions that parents have about child passenger safety. This is such a unique resource from a government agency!

Good post. Car seats are so important and so easy to install incorrectly. I wish our van had the LATCH system but it's old and doesn't. We got a good car seat that fits in there very well and thankfully was easy to install even with the seatbelt. Someday I will get a car with the LATCH system. So easy and safe it's hard to go wrong!
