If you aren’t sure whether your child needs to switch to a carseat or a booster seat then you may want to check the height and weight limits. The child can stay in their biggest carseat until they outgrow those limits. It’s super important that they are put into a booster seat because just using the seatbelt could cause more harm than good. The seatbelt was designed to lay across the waist and chest but with a small child it will likely fall on the stomach and neck.
You should also remember to consider what toys you are bringing in the car. There are many children who have gotten injured by toys while in a crash. If you do decide to bring toys along make sure that they are soft. No matter how far the distance is, you and your children should always wear their seatbelts. If you buckle up then they will want to as well. This should be done as soon as you get into the vehicle and before you start driving away.
Another huge issue for children in vehicles is heatstroke. We want to make sure that your child never has to endure this. The easiest way to prevent this is to never leave your child in the vehicle regardless of how quick you think you’ll be. There are also many laws that could get you into big time trouble if you were to do this.
