Choosing the Proper Car Seat for your Child

  • by

Keeping your child safe is your number one priority as a parent, which is why it is important to make sure your child has the proper child safety seat while they are in any vehicle. Along with choosing the right seat, it is equally important to make sure that the seat is properly installed. Having the right car seat for your child will help prevent injury or even death if you are ever involved in a car accident.

Before your child is born, make sure to meet with a certified child passenger safety technician, or CPST. You can contact a CPST though the police department or fire department, and they will help you learn how to properly install and use a child safety seat, for no charge. They will also make sure that you have the proper seat for your child and vehicle.

There are many different types of child safety seats. While they are all built to protect a child, they do not all work in every situation. The proper car seat for your situation depends on many different factors, including your child’s weight and height, the car seat, and your vehicle. When you are looking for the right car seat, make sure to buy a new one. While a car seat may be less expensive at a yard sale or thrift shop, there is no way to know if the seat is defective.

Most auto insurance providers will provide coverage for car seats if they are damaged in a car accident, as long as they were properly installed. The liability of your auto insurance policy may be affected if the car seat was not properly installed in your vehicle during a crash.
