If you have small children or a baby on board, you’re going to want to take extra special care and so we have included a few baby car seat safety tips below for you to consider.

  • Opt for a rear-facing car seat as these are safer than forward-facing car seats.
  • If you have a forward-facing car seat, make sure that it is securely tethered at all times.
  • Remove any bulky blankets and clothing before buckling your child into the car seat. Bulky items can give the illusion of the straps being secure when they aren’t.
  • Always check the label of the car seat to ensure that you’re using the right one for your child’s size, age and height. Make sure that you replace car seats as your baby grows.
  • The safest place to set up your car seat is at the back, away from air bags that can cause serious injuries.
