For parents, child car seat safety best practices are a top priority.
Because when it comes to car seats and keeping our kids safe, there’s zero room for error.
Questions like; when can a child face forward in a car seat? What car seat should my child be in? How long does a child need to be in a car seat? When can a child stop using a car seat? Plus many more questions like these are common among all parents.
