I’m at that age now where most of my friends that are going to have children have had their first, and some their second. I’ve seen how being a parent is an enormous responsibility, especially in one place in particular, their new Buick, or GMC. I’ll go further and relegate this post to focus on the infant seat. That’s going to be the first time you’ve ever installed a car seat of any kind, I suspect.
Now, I can give you all sorts of statistics about the mortality rate of children who are not properly secured in their car seats. Instead though, I think I’ll just make this a “How To…” post and focus on saving your child’s life rather than use fear to help you realize the importance of securing your child in your car properly. After all, the best way is to learn by example. Remember, most accidents happen within 5 miles of your house, so buckle them up EVERY time they are in the car. Check twice before starting your car…your infant isn’t going to tell you he didn’t think the buckle latched properly.
Watch the video below, it contained a surprising installation technique that I didn’t think about.
If you have any questions, or want step by step installation instruction of your infant seat, Freeman Grapevine Service would be happy to walk you though it.
