How to Choose the Right Car Seat for Your Little One

Here at Lindsay Volvo Cars of Alexandria, our team has a goal to help Alexandria, VA motorists stay safe and keep their children safe when they're on the road. Choosing the right car seat is one of the most important things a parent can do to keep their children safe, and it's also necessary that you install it correctly.

Rear-facing car seats are for infants. These seats are equipped with a harness that can move with your baby to reduce the risk of injury to the neck and spinal cord. Forward-facing seats are appropriate for toddlers, and booster seats are used for older children. Be sure to choose a car seat that's suited for your child's age and weight.

Installing a car seat may seem like a breeze, but it's important to read through your owner's manual so that you know you're installing it correctly. Try to keep your child in a safety seat as long as you can and keep children under 12 in the back to maximize safety.
