Best Practices in Car Seat Safety for Children (Frequently asked Questions and Answers)

When I started this blog several years ago, I had no idea it would grow into such a large resource on car seat safety. Here are a collection of articles to help parents, grandparents, and all caretakers choose, install, and use the right car seats for children. Please share this page and the articles contained within with fellow parents and caretakers interested in following best practices. For recommendations and reviews of a range of infant, convertible, combination, and booster seats, see the US Recommended Car Seats and Canadian Recommended Car Seats pages. For best practices related to overall auto safety, particularly in terms of driving techniques, vehicle selection, and road road design, see here.
