Car seat safety: Parents putting kids at risk

Posted in Feed Play Love.

Putting a kid into a harness seat every time you go somewhere can be really annoying, but necessary. 

It seems that many parents are rushing their children out of booster seats before it’s safe to do so.

Recent research from the National Child Health Poll indicates that many parents don’t understand the safest way to seat their children in a car.

Director of the Poll, Dr Anthea Rhodes from the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne runs through when it’s safest for a child to be out of a booster, and when it’s okay to turn their child’s seat forward facing.
