Which infant seat/car seat/booster should I buy? The options are too overwhelming!

By Ken Gibson on December 2, 2013

Before my twins were born, I started researching car seats. After hours of reading articles and reviews, I felt even more confused. Fortunately, we all have access to “the experts.”

While every infant seat/car seat/booster is required by law to meet safety requirements, some are easier to use. That’s important because the biggest barrier to child safety is we parents and caregivers not installing or using child safety restraints correctly.

With that in mind, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has rated every car seat that meets federal regulations to determine which ones are easiest to use. They looked at the following criteria:

  1. Instructions
  2. Installation features
  3. Labels
  4. Ease in securing child correctly

So click here to check out the child safety seats or boosters you own or are considering buying today.

Then, to be sure you’ve installed everything correctly, have your child safety restraint checked. If you live in or near Gloucester, visit the Gloucester Sheriff’s Office, 7502 Justice Drive. Just call ahead for an appointment (804) 693-3890 to meet a child safety certified officer, and get your questions answered. And look for child safety seat inspection events coming to Gloucester this spring.
