Baby Car Seat Buying Guide
Buying a car seat or booster for your child is one of most important safety moves you’ll make as a parent. Which is exactly why the process of actually choosing one can feel so enormously overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be though, but most of the products sold in the are going to protect children well when used properly, says professor of pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. “One make or model is not necessarily better than another, nor is price an accurate indicator of effectiveness.”
What does matter: Getting a seat that’s comfortable for your child, fits tightly in your car, and is easy to use correctly every single time. Finding that perfect match may take some trial and error (keep your receipt!) and some professional help from a safety technician, but your baby’s safety is worth it.
