Car seat safety demonstration

Learning how to use the new car seat is often the last step in preparing for the arrival of a new baby. In the chaos and excitement before the baby is born, this isn't always done well or at all. Car seats often come with lengthy instructions that parents may not read or fully understand, causing many car seats to be used incorrectly. The Car Seat Safety Demonstration provides expectant and new parents with an opportunity to focus on the proper use of a car seat.
