Car Seat Safety

The Babywise Friendly Tips and Tricks Thursday this month is all about safety! I am passionate about car seat safety. I have no control over whether my children are in a car wreck or not but I do have the ability to ensure they are the safest possible each time we get in the car.

I have seen countless pictures of infants and children strapped into their car seat with the chest belt down near their belly. If that child was in a car accident, the chest belt not being in the proper place can cause serious injury to your child and/or cause them to be ejected from their carseat upon impact.

The chest belt should line up with your child’s armpits.

Moving the chest clip to be in line with your child’s armpits could save their life!
