Car seat safety and installation for kids at every age and stage
***Car seat laws vary from state to state, please make sure to check your local laws.
Car seat safety is essential for protecting children while they are riding in vehicles. The recommended car seat type and usage vary depending on the child's age, weight, and height.
- Infants and toddlers should be placed in a rear-facing car seat in the back seat of the car until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by the car seat manufacturer.
- Once a child outgrows the rear-facing car seat, they should be placed in a forward-facing car seat with a harness in the back seat until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by the car seat manufacturer.
- Once a child outgrows the harness on a forward-facing car seat, they should use a belt positioning booster seat in the back seat until the car's seat belt fits properly.
- Children who have outgrown their booster seat should use a seat belt in the back seat, as this is the safest location in the vehicle.
It's important to make sure the car seat is properly installed, and the child is properly secured in the seat according to the manufacturer's instructions. Also, never place a rear-facing car seat in the front seat of a vehicle that has an active airbag.
