Guide To Car Seat Safety: Have a Professional Check it Out!

Did you know that 96 percent of parents and caregivers believe their child safety seats are installed correctly, only to find that research shows that seven out of 10 children are improperly restrained? Those are scary statistics! That is why it is extremely important to get your car seat inspected and properly installed.

In both Nassau and Suffolk Counties there are places that you can go to be sure you have safely installed your car seat or infant seat. Appointments book up extremely fast, so be sure to think ahead and make your appointment early. Especially when it comes to your infant seat, because you need to have those properly installed before leaving the hospital with your newborn.
