Little man is not so little, but having him safe is a must!   Just because he is 43 lbs at just three years old, he needs to be in a car seat that keeps him safe and secure.  When we finally found a car seat that would fit him we decided to have a car seat check done.

Apparently, I did not have it installed correctly on my own.  The new car seat came with the Latch System, but I had never used it before.  When I was shown just how it works, I realized how much easier it was to use!  Now his seat is so secure, it does not move a bit!

Cars.com talks about the Latch System when installing car seats.  As parents, we want to do everything we can to keep our kids safe.  This especially holds true when on the road! The best way to make sure your little one’s are safe is by starting with a car seat check!

Car Seat Check List

  • When you get a new car seat, the first thing you need to do is check out the manual.  I know this sounds boring, but as the years go by, there are so many advances in car seats.  My youngest two are seven years apart, and the car seats have changed drastically in that time alone!
  • Next, you need to register your car seat.  It is so simple to do, just fill out the postcard or go online.  By doing this, it allows the car-seat maker to alert you as soon as there is a recall.  This way, you can know as soon as it is happens, instead of months later.
  • Go to a car seat check! Even if you think you have it in 100% correct, you can still schedule a car seat check in your area.  This way, you will know for sure that your little one is safe!
