Keep your children safe: find the perfect car seat

If you're traveling with small children, it's imperative you find a car seat that ensures both the safety and comfort of your loved ones. We're here to give you a few tips for finding the seat that will fit your needs.


Budget: As with all purchases, begin by determining your budget. All car seats must pass the same set of safety tests, so a cheaper car seat doesn't necessarily mean a worse product. Consider your other needs to help determine a budget for your seat.


Ease of transport: Another need to consider is whether your seat will be mobile or stationary: i.e., will you be switching the seat from car to car? If you will be switching often, consider how long it takes to set up the car seat. A car seat that takes 30 minutes to set up could take a significant chunk of time out of your busy day.


Durability: Ask yourself how long you realistically expect your car seat to last. Children grow quickly, and a seat that fit when your child was three may not last until they're six. Depending on your situation, you may be able to purchase multiple seats as your child grows or one that will last awhile.


Proper use: Most importantly, make sure you know how to properly install whichever seat you choose. Often times you can test various seats in the store, where you will receive assistance from Child Safety Passenger Technicians. To find a CPST in your area, visit www.car-seat.org.
