As a new mother, one of the things that I was constantly worried about was “Am I doing everything right?” Of course I wasn’t. However, I did worry about whether or not my carseats were properly installed. When my first child was born, everyone in the family wanted to help out. My husband and truly appreciated it.
This meant that carseats were moved around a lot and it took me a little while to get the hang of installing them properly every time. I had to practice and then I had to show everyone else in the family. Now Chicco can help you out with those questions.
Chicco (pronounced Kee-Ko) has long been recognized for offering superior baby products. I have several Chicco items that have lasted through three children and still have life left in them. As a soon-to-be mom and then as a mother, I chose Chicco products because the name symbolizes quality to me. Shopping at Chicco means that I can discover everything Chicco. From children’s clothing and shoes to toys and of course, their vast selection of car seats, playards, highchairs and more.
Chicco shared the infographic below because like the great products they make, they also want to educate their customers and to help them be better parents. The number one question that people had, of course, is my exact question as a new parent, “Is my carseat installed correctly?”
The graphic answers other importance questions like what to look for when buying a carseat, weight & height limits, LATCH vs. seatbelt and more.
Finally I want to leave with you this statistic from the infographic below because I truly cannot stress enough the importance of having your carseats are installed correctly.
“When installed correctly into a vehicle, child safety seats reduce injury to infants by 71%.”
