Consumer on Car Seat Safety

September is Car Seat Safety Month

Common safety convention dictates that you take your baby's coat or snow suit off. The extra padding hinders the ability of a seat harness to hold the baby tight enough to keep him safe in a car crash.

This paragraph below is from an article on Consumer repeats what many car seat experts recommend is to take off your babys snow suit, and use a simple blanket to keep your baby not only warm but safe in their car seat during the colder months.

Baby Basics: Car Seat Safety
Take off the wraps.
If you need to keep your baby warm, place blankets or thick coats over her after you strap her into an infant or convertible car seat. Don’t wrap your baby up in a blanket, thick coat or other bulky garment and then strap her into a restraint system. That may prevent the restraint system from working properly.

Another great reference for new parents on car seat safety.

One of the most important jobs you have as a parent is keeping your child safe when riding in a vehicle. Each year thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. Proper use of car seats helps keep children safe. But with so many different car safety seats on the market, it's no wonder many parents find it overwhelming.

The type of seat your child needs depends on several things including age, size, and type of vehicle. To be sure your child is using the most appropriate seat, visit the American Academy of Pediatrics web site and learn how to pick out the best one for your child.
