SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL BABY SAFETY MONTH!!

BABY SAFETY MONTH

September is National Baby Safety Month.  Car seat safety is also an extremely important parental responsibility. For the best protection, keep your baby in a rear-facing child safety seat in a back seat for as long as possible. As of March 2011, American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommendations urge parents to keep children rear facing up to at least the second birthday or up to the height or weight limit of the seat. Hundreds of vehicles and car seats on the market make using your baby’s car seat very confusing. It is important to read the manual for the safety seat and the manual for the vehicle that you’ll be using. Go to a car seat check station for help from certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs). You can go learn more about installing the car seat correctly before the baby is born. Then go again after the baby is born to be sure they are fitted in the seat correctly. Many seat check stations require an appointment, but there are some open events. To find a car seat check station, go to www.seatcheck.org or www.nhtsa.dot.gov for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
