How to Properly Strap Baby Into His/Her Car Seat {Giveaway – $269.99 value}

carseat

Are you properly strapping your precious little one into his/her car seat? Learn how you can ensure that they are safely strapped below!

When securing a child in a car seat using a 5 point harness, it is important to consider two important factors to ensure they will be safe in the case of an accident:

  • Proper tightness – Many parents are concerned that if they adjust the harness too tight, their child will be uncomfortable and potentially unsafe in an accident. However, a tightly secured harness is critical in order to properly spread the forces of an accident over a wider area of the body. There is a simple check that parents can do called the “pinch test” to make sure the harness is properly secured. Once the child is strapped in, simply squeeze the harness strap using your thumb and index finger. If the harness is properly secured, you should not be able to pinch any of the harness strap between your fingers. If you are able to pinch the strap, continue to tighten the harness until you are unable to do so.
  • Position of the harness chest clip – the second important factor to consider is the position of the harness chest clip. This should always be positioned at armpit level for the safest ride. If the chest clip is too high, there is risk of choking the child during impact of the accident. If the clip is too low, there is risk of causing harm to internal organs due to the excessive forces of the accident.

    I like the OUTLAST Performance Fabric that absorbs hot and cold temperature. It’s a great idea because sitting in a seat for a long while can be very uncomfortable. and it’s hard to tell the baby’s body temperature. They may look find, but their back might be sweaty.

    I love the “SureLATCH® Technology”. It is always a pain to spend 10 minutes figuring out if I’ve secured it to the car correctly.

    I love the platinum series! This is the exact car seat I want. I live in Arizona where it gets really hot so the cooling fabric is a huge plus. Definitely one of my favorite “luxury” features aside from the safety features.

    The Outlast Performance Tablet is amazing; nothing worse than seeing the little ones sweating in a carseat and you can’t reach them. I also love the full suite of safety systems; my new granddaughter deserves them all!

    Can I say all of it? For sure the SureLatch is amazing if you have ever wrestled to get the straps tightened on a standard carseat, but if you have a hot sweaty baby like mine the Outlast fabric sounds fantastic!!

    Luckily I don’t need car seats like this anymore but I do need boosters for my grandchildren. I have always purchased Evenflo products when my kids were younger. I am glad to see they have kept up with the quality of their products.
