Baby on Board: Keeping Your Child Safe in the Car

  • Baby on Board: Keeping Your Child Safe in the Car
  • Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death and injury for American children. Many of these tragedies could have been prevented if the child was properly secured in a seat belt or car seat. All 50 states have child passenger safety laws that require young children to be secured in a child safety seat.

  • Types of safety seats
  • The type of safety seat you use will depend on your child's height and weight, not on his or her age. Although safety is the priority, you'll also want to choose a seat that is easy to use and comfortable for your child.
  • Infant safety seat: Designed for infants who weigh under 20 pounds

  • Front-facing safety seat: Designed for children who weigh between 20 and 40 pounds
  • Convertible safety seat: A seat that starts out as an infant seat, then converts into a front-facing seat
  • Booster seat: Designed for children who weigh between 40 and 80 pounds

  • Properly installing a child safety seat
  • Properly installing the seat is the key to your child's safety. So it's important to read the safety seat manufacturer's instructions and the vehicle owner's manual before you begin.
  • All safety seats should be installed in the back seat (the middle is the safest spot). Infant seats should be used in the rear-facing position.

  • The safety belt should be routed through the seat according to the manufacturer's instructions. You may need a locking clip to secure the safety belt around the safety seat, or you may need an accessory belt or tether strap to properly secure the seat.
  • If you need additional help, check with your local police and fire departments to see if they offer installation advice and child safety seat inspections.

  • Making sure that your child is properly secured in the safety seat
  • Not only is it vital to secure the seat properly in the vehicle, but you should make sure that your child is secure in the seat. If you are using a safety seat with a full harness, harness straps should be properly positioned on your child (use the harness retainer clip, if there is one).

  • Straps should be at or above the child's shoulders and should be snug against his or her chest. Adjust the straps so your child is comfortable, but make sure that only one adult finger can fit between the harness and your child's chest.
  • If you are using a belt-positioning booster seat, make sure that the adult lap and shoulder belt fits properly across the child's chest and stomach.

  • The shoulder belt should cross the chest and rest snugly on the shoulders, and the lap belt should rest low across the upper thighs, never across the stomach. Again, closely follow the seat manufacturer's safety instructions.

  • Additional safety tips
  • All children under the age of 12 should be properly restrained in the back seat
  • Never place a child under 12 in the front seat of a car (the air bag could deploy and injure the child, even if he or she is properly restrained)
