Is car seat safe for newborn?
Of course, buying a car seat for a baby might not be your primary concern, but the fact is that it reduces the risk of injuries in babies as they are well-tied on a car seat. A baby car seat has a baby harness for the safety of your little one and protects them from any harm or injuries.
Should infant car seat go behind driver or passenger?
The car seat should always be installed in the back seat. That is the safest spot for your baby. If you can, put the car seat in the center seat. If not, it is fine behind either the driver or passenger side.
Do newborns need neck support in car seat?
Ensuring your baby has proper head support at all times during their first few months of life is important. Proper head support prevents brain damage, neck injuries, and helps keep the baby stable to make them easier to hold. Babies have little control over their movements during their first few months.
Where do you put a newborn in the car?
Put the newborn in the center rear seating position as the baby is the most vulnerable in a crash. Put an older forward-facing child — assuming the older child is forward facing — in the center seat since rear-facing children are inherently safer in their rear-facing seat.
