Car Seat Safety Checks
- Cost: $15
- Event Type: Class
To provide our community with a monthly opportunity to check and educate families about their child’s car seat installations. Appointment time with our nationally certified child passenger safety technician will teach you how to correctly install and use your car seat. Our safety technician will help you identify when it’s time for your child to transition into another seat. Parents delivering with us are advised to have their car seat installation checked at least one month prior to delivery. Please note, car seat checks will not be done** at hospital discharge which is why at least one month prior to due date is recommended. Having your car seat checked is not required but if interested, you can register for an appointment during one of our “classes”. Classes are $15 per appointment time (car seat).
Checklist for caregivers prior to their appointment:
~ car manual (if possible)
~ car seat manual
~ ensure your car seat is not expired
~ if you have a previously used car seat, please obtain the seats history
~ if your used car seat was involved in a car accident, please visit:
https://www.nhtsa.gov/car-seats-and-booster-seats/car-seat-use-after-crash to see if it needs to be replaced
~ for older children’s seats, bring the child who will be sitting in the seat, if possible
~ if bringing children, bring a stroller for them to rest in
We recommend caregivers going to www.ultimatecarseatguide.org to better assist them in deciding what car seat is best for them prior to the appointment.
**If you schedule a car seat check with our team and your baby requires a different car seat due to weight, please contact our team prior discharge to arrange for the new car seat installation check. No cost will be incurred for this check.
