Travel Safety Tips & Safety 1st Advance Car Seat Giveaway

Car crashes are sometimes no accident and there are ways to help avoid injury. I’m big on car seat safety and it just takes a little knowledge on how the car seat works (with YOUR child and with YOUR car) to use it properly. Check out these travel safety tips below and then enter to win your own Safety 1st Advance SE 65 Air + Convertible Car Seat!

Travel Safety Tips by Safety 1st Consumer Safety Expert Julie Vallese

The three most important things when choosing a car seat are:

  1. One that fits your child
  2. One that fits your car
  3. One that you will use correctly every time

You can accomplish this by:

  • Have the car you will be using the seat in with you and try it out at the store
  • If possible, have your child with you at the time of purchase
  • Follow information in both the car seat manual and vehicle manual for installation
  • Attend a car seat check for assistance in proper installation and use from a certified car seat technician

New rules for car seats using LATCH require understanding of your car seat’s weight and child’s weight:

  • Car seats manufactured after February 27, 2014 are required to carry a new label with guidance on maximum weight limits for LATCH
  • The combined weight should not exceed 65lbs
  • Look in the manual and label on the car seat to identify the weight of the seat
  • Look for a weight on the maximum weight for the child and know your child’s weight
  • If the combined weight of the seat and your child exceeds 65lbs, install the car seat using the vehicle’s belt
