Car Seat Cushion

According to WHO’S report, 1.3 million lives were lost to car crashes. The reason for most crash is unawareness. By and large, this type of unawareness starts from the driver's seat.

Driving with a child deserves extra attention. In most car crashes, children under 12 are highly involved. In this article, we’ll share six car seat safety tips that you must know if you drive a car regularly. If you follow these tips, you will be able to decrease the probability of a child being injured in case of an accident.


1. Always try to keep the seat straps tightened

The biggest mistake you can make is leaving the straps loose. This may cause a problem. Be sure that your straps, as well as your child’s straps, are snug. By doing this you will gradually put everyone out of danger.

2. Try to use a car seat cushion if you need it

Using a car seat cushion helps to release back pain and gives a little back support. When you’re headed to a long trip, driving with your seat cushion will be a pleasure. It helps to relax with your difficult task. Car seat cushions also help for coccyx pain. With a seat cushion, short buddies can gain a little height. It helps if the view is clearer.

3. Always keep your kids rear facing and don’t start or stop using seat booster too soon

Dumping your kid at the booster is a bad idea if they are not old enough. The main aim of the booster seat is to keep the lap belt in position at the lower hips during a crash. It will keep them safe. You should use this only when your kid is 4-6 years old.

4. Before you start, make sure that everyone in the car is buckled up

When adults are riding in the back seats and they’re not wearing seat belts, they are no longer humans during a crash or accident. They turn into human missiles. So it’s essential to buckle up.

5. After installing a child car seat, have it checked by a technician

After you install a child car seat, don’t forget to get it checked by a well-trained technician. You could be driving with a probability of massive danger if you’re totally inept regarding the child car seat mechanism. You can’t know as much as a trained technician does.

6. Car seat expired or change after feeling like trouble

Car seats from different brands contain different expiration dates. In general, a seat remains soft and strong for nearly 8 to 10 years. After your car seat expires, you need to get a new one. Grab a new one that suits the make and model of your car.
