  • Four out of five car seats are not properly installed.
  • Car seats reduce the risk of injury by 71-82% and reduce the risk of death by 28% in comparison to seat belts alone.

    Such an informative article! Our daughter is in the infant carrier car seat so there is a lot to learn for the convertible car seats. I found the harness slot placement especially helpful for when she is in the forward facing in the future.

    One of the ten safety tips they shared is: 3. Rear-facing is 5X safer: Rear-facing car seats offer maximum protection for your child’s head, neck and spinal cord, yet 77% of children are moved into a forward-facing seat too soon. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children stay rear-facing until at least two years of age. Don’t rush to move your child to the forward-facing position. Because every child develops at a different rate, age is not the only factor to consider. As best practice, we recommend keeping your child rear-facing to the maximum weight or height of their car seat.

    All of the Diono 10 Car Safety Tips are extremely important, here’s #2:
    2. Harnessing 101: Is your child properly harnessed? Whether rear-facing or forward-facing, the chest clip on your child’s harness should always be placed at armpit level. This ensures the harness stays on the child’s shoulders for maximum safety. The 5-point harness should fit snug and comfortable. You should not be able to pinch the harness strap at the collar bone.

    I like tip #9 about choosing the seatbelt or latch, particularly the part about checking whether or not your child has surpassed the weight limit for using the latch. We installed our car seat so long ago that I’d completely forgotten about there being a weight limit for the latch system, so it is a very timely reminder for me to check – I am pretty sure our child is at or near the limit now!

    I found the very first point is exactly what you should begin with. Read the manual: You should always read both the car seat manual AND your vehicle manual, as both contain vital information about installation, seat belt function, seating positions and safety warnings. Store your manuals in a safe spot (like your glove box or storage compartment) so you can reference them later as your child grows.

    Reading the manual is important. YouTube is not a substitute.

    To read the user manual. My husband usually just skips over those but it really is important especially with carseats to read over those first.

    My favorite tip is tip #10: “The right car seat is the one that fits your vehicle, fits your child, and the one you will use correctly every time you travel.”

    Rear facing in a car seat is five times safer. Thanks for the super giveaway opportunity!

    Diono has provided some great points. Reading the manual is the most important one as soon as you buy the seat. you also need to pull our your vehicle manual to see what the manufacturer recommends

    I love the tip about rear facing! Extended rear facing is so important and I cringe when people turn their littles so soon! Don’t be in a rush to move your children in the car seat stages!

    Use the seat belt or the latch, but not both.

    One of the tips is to Re-check the harness slot. Important to me as we got a new seat for my youngest, and I didn’t think it was fitting her properly, and the problem was in the harness slot; it was too high.

    Read the manual of course I have to give my daughter credit she is a stickler when it comes to her children and car seats. She is always inspecting hers and follows the manufacturer direction about weight height.

    Do the pinch test … you should not be able to pinch the harness strap at the collar bone.

    Tip 1: Read the manual!
    Not all carseats are the same so just because you installed 3 carseats it doesn’t mean the 4th is the same! Especially when you have had a kid out of the infant seat a few years and get a new one for the next baby, read the manual!

    Use a seat belt or the UAS, not both. I wasn’t sure about this but it’s good to know that you just use one, depending on what your car has. 🙂

    I have to admit the very first tip was referring to me. Read the dang manual. I have a bad habit that I think I would know how something works or needs to be put together that I often don’t read manuals until all else fails lol.
