Car seats cost a lot so maybe a gift card giveaway can help

baby-shower-gamesThe last time I went to a baby shower we were all oohing and aahing over the gifts. Everything for babies is too adorable so when we go shopping for something our instincts are to go with the cute. I didn’t go with the cute, I went with the gift I thought was the most important – an infant car seat. All new moms need to have the best of the best when it comes to a car seat, no matter the age of the child. My friends and I went through the baby register and thought about “ooh” but then reality set in and we went for safety.

Our choice was a Britax Car Seat. Why Britax? For the same reason that my two year old granddaughter has a Britax Roundabout G4.1 Convertible Car Seat in her parents’ and grandparent’s cars. Britax Car Seats are some of the best overall. After reading about car seats our decision was easy on what to buy. Review Lab rated the top 10 car seats this year and Britax ended up as 5 of the top 10. You can’t get better than that. Numbers 1, 2, and 3 were all Britax, as were numbers 6 and 8. These 5 models had the best consumer responses from 16,336 reports. Obviously not a small selection.

Parents Central is one of many sites that explains what you should be looking for in a car seat: picking out the proper size, installation, registering it, and getting email notices from NHTSA about recalls. This vital information might be overlooked by 2nd or 3rd time parents but they shouldn’t be. Google your state to find out their requirements. I’m in Michigan and found a great article on this including where and when to get our car seats checked. Even if you’ve installed many car seats there are steps you can miss to make them the safest possible.
