So many choices out there it can be rather confusing… Here's what I've found out so far…

Evenflo Triumph Car Seat Click for more detailsJust a quick post as have come across something I didn’t know about and thought you should know… As I have said in previous posts there are multitudes of car seats on the market… So how can you make sure that you have installed it correctly?

Have a look at your manufactures website for a manual.

Here is a list of major brands in America, you can click each brand and it will take you to their website.

Britax – you can read a review I’ve done here on the Britax Frontier 85 Combination Booster Car Seat.

• Graco

• Cosco

• Evenflo

• Safety 1st

• Recaro

• Sunshine Kids

• Maxi-Cosi

• Baby Trend

• Preg Perego

You-Tube is a wealth of information you might be able to see your brand being installed there.

What I didn’t know is you can get the car seat installed or checked for FREE by a Certified Technician in your area run by NHTSA ( National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ) This is FANTASTIC!

NHTSA estimate that close to 3 out of 4 car seats are installed incorrectly.. Now that is scary! Car Seat Safety

Or get your child’s seat checked during Child Passenger Safety Week – September 18-24 2011.

Outside of the U.S I would recommend contacting your local transport authority to see if they run programmes like this.
