September Tips of the Month: Child Passenger Safety Seats
  • Infants up to 20 pounds and one year of age must ride in a rear-facing child seat. The child seat must be in the BACK seat and face the rear of the car, van, or truck. some infant seats will go higher than 20 pounds rear-facing. If your seat goes to a higher weight limit, keep the child rear facing as long as possible.

  • Babies riding in a car must never face the front. In a crash or sudden stop, the baby's neck can be hurt badly.

  • Infants in car seats must never ride in the front seat of a car with air bags. In a crash, the air bag can hit the car seat and hurt or kill the baby.

  • Never hold your baby in you lap when you are riding in the car. In a crash or sudden stop, your child can be hurt badly or killed by the force of your weight.

  • Always read the child seat instructions and the car owner's manual. Test the child seat to ensure a snug fit by pulling the base to either side or toward the front of the car. Contact the Children's Hospital of Southwest Florida for a car seat check appointment.

  • Do not set baby's carrier on a counter top or any high surface, when the baby is in it. Babies can wiggle and tip themselves over and fall off the counter.
