Car seat safety is high on the list of new-parent worries.
When Britain’s Prince George was born, his father, Prince William, expressed concern that he would install his car seat incorrectly. On a recent trip to New Zealand, the prince and Duchess of Cambridge came under fire from car seat safety advocates, who claimed that Prince George’s car seat was turned the wrong way. (The car seat maker insists it was correct.)
Even if you aren’t buckling in the future king, knowing the rules and guidelines for car seat safety is important — but mystifying. We chatted with Cars.com expert moms Kristin Varela and Jennifer Newman at the recent Family Car Advice event in the Fort Worth Stockyards to clear up some car seat confusion.
