Nationally certified in car seat installation, the team was able to answer questions from customers, check recalls on car seats, and give out materials from the Tobacco Free Network of CNY.
The best practice recommendation is for infants to ride rear-facing for as long as the seat will accommodate their weight.
For many people, a convertible type seat is the best choice.
Convertible seats can be installed both rear facing and forward facing.
Weight limits vary in each position so it’s important to read the labels on the seat.
