  • Important rules to observe to keep baby safe in the car:

    • Always use a car safety seat and start using one when you bring baby home from the hospital.
    • Never place baby in a rear-facing car seat in the front passenger seat that has an air bag.
    • Familiarize yourself with the instructions that come with baby’s car seat. Follow it at all times.

    When shopping for an infant car seat:
    • Don’t choose based on the price alone but check to make sure the seat has passed safety standards and has a seal to prove it.
    • Try out a seat before buying. Place baby in it and adjust the seat belts and buckles. Make certain that it can fit properly and securely in your car.
    • Remember that pictures or displays depicting car seats may not show them being used the correct way.
