Did you know that September is Baby Safety Month and we are just a few days away from National Child Passenger Safety Week, which is Sept. 15-21, 2013? Yes, this month is all about boosting your child’s safety in all areas, from the car, to proper baby proofing, to reducing the risks of SIDS. It’s that time where we take a little refresher to make sure we are creating a safe environment for baby. For us, it’s about choosing a convertible car seat for Grayson. As he is approaching a year old and 19 pounds, well, his Orbit Baby infant car seat is just a little snug for our big guy. After speaking with a Orbit Baby director of regulatory and engineering compliance and certified child passenger safety technician, I felt much more at ease from the tips he shared, and was excited to choose an Orbit Baby Toddler Car Seat for his next few years as we took a smart, eco-safe step choosing this car seat for Grayson.
Personally, the ease of installation is so important when you select a car seat because if it’s easier for the parent to install, the more likely he or she is to do it correctly every time. This was one of the reasons we choose Orbit Baby, because their patented technology allows for a secure installation in only 60 seconds. Grayson’s infant car seat was the easiest car seat ever for us to install. After having four different car seats (as we have had a different car seat for each of our previous children), it was by far my favorite because I didn’t feel stressed when it came to installing it and I knew he was safe. Pair with some great car seat installation tips and you will be good to go!
