Car Seat Installations in Northern New Jersey | Bambi Baby
One of the first frightening experiences to take place after a little one is born is the transport home. You want to make sure they are comfortable, warm, fit perfectly, and most importantly, that they are safe. The days leading up to the baby’s birth can be stressful, and installing the car seat correctly is an incredibly important task. It may seem simple; there are multiple instructions that clearly guide parents to properly install a seat. However, on average, a surprising amount of parents install a carseat improperly: somewhere between 75%-90% of parents make this mistake when preparing to transport their little one. A recent study conducted also showed that more than 618,000 children between newborn to age twelve rode in vehicles without using a booster seat or child safety seat.
Bottom line: like seat belts, car seats for infants, toddlers, and young children save lives. This is why car seats are required in every single one of the U.S. States. Car crashes are one of the leading causes of death and injury for children. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there are more than 650 children under the age of 12 who died as occupants in crashes involving motor vehicles and more than 140,000 children were also injured in the U.S. With this, a statistic from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that a child under the age of 13 is involved in a car accident every 34 seconds. Statistics also demonstrates there are more than 1,700 fatalities and 840,000 injuries every year from vehicle crashes off public highways. Car seats are crucial in ensuring that your child is kept safe in the car, and the proper installation of the car seat lowers the risk of injury or worse in the event of an accident. Finding and using the proper car seat for your child’s height, age, weight, and size is fundamental to the safety of your child when travelling by car. The risk of car accidents is also reduced and as a result more and more lives are saved in the event of an accident.
