Car seat safety: Simple steps that may save a child’s life

How to keep them safe in a crash

Keeping your baby safe in a crash depends on a lot of variables, but many groups have advice.

If you do not know the car seats history, do not potentially risk a childs life and use it. There are many great buys to be found at a garage sale and a car seat is probably not one of them. Know your car seats age. Car seats have an expiration date. Experts recommend that any car seat over six years old should not be used. When buckling your child into the seat, the chest strap/buckle should be aligned by the armpits not by the abdomen or up by the neck. They should be neatly aligned and not twisted or turned.

Why infants are different Research published in the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics found that rear-facing child seats provide 75 percent more protection against serious injury or death for children under the age of 2, regardless of the type of crash. Under the age of one year the chance of severe injury in a forward-facing seat is almost twice that of a rear-facing seat. Infants have heavy heads and fragile necks with flexible bones and loose ligaments.
