When you get pregnant, you’re mind is in overdrive. You are constantly thinking of all the things that you need to buy. I know with my first, I had a list a mile long, maybe two miles if we’re being honest. Luckily, I became a little more practical with my second, and my list was only about 10 things that I needed. A car seat was at the top of my list. Before clothes or anything else, I knew that a quality car seat was of utmost importance.
What’s the BIG deal!?
September is Child Safety Month. More specifically though, September 17-23, 2017, is Child Passenger Safety Week. A week dedicated to learning the importance of how to keep your child safe will a passenger in a vehicle. A car seat is the one device that you purchase that literally can save your child’s life. No one wants to believe that they will in an accident. However, the truth is that every 33 seconds, one child under the age of 13 is involved in a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Twenty-six percent of children who died in vehicle crashes in 2014, under the age of 8, were not restrained in an age-appropriate device. That is why this is such a big deal. These tragic accidents are preventable. Simply learning how to properly install and use your child’s seat could save their life.

Britax invites YOU to #TestDriveParenthood
Britax, known to be a pioneer in car seat innovation, is here to help. They are a leader in the industry for both safety and quality. Their drive is to give customers the best quality products to keep your littles safe and secure, in turn giving you peace of mind. In collaboration with Lexus, Britax will be hosting car seat installation demonstrations across the US next week for Child Passenger Safety Week.
#TestDriveParenthood is a program intended for families that are growing and making several new purchases, such as a premium infant car seat and a family-friendly vehicle. At each event, brand representatives will be on hand to walk attendees through proper car seat installations, discuss key car seat and vehicle features and provide helpful child passenger safety tips. Kelly Thomas, Britax brand manager, recently said, “by hosting these events with Lexus, another brand known for safety and innovation, we hope to educate new parents in a way that is convenient and supportive to them.” Currently, three out of four children are in car seats that are either installed or used incorrectly. That’s a huge number. Britax and Lexus hope to help parents and caregivers have the information they need for proper installation in an appropriate vehicle.
