Let’s be honest. Car seat installation can be a real pain in the neck. If not completed properly, the consequences can be serious. What’s worse is that transition recommendations from rear facing to forward facing to a booster are about as clear as mud. To help, several car seat safety events are on the schedule for 2015. Whether you are preparing to welcome a newborn or trying to determine what seat your 36-inch-tall, 32-pound, three-year-old toddler should be riding in, these free car seat inspections can help. All the events are by appointment. Call 616-748-2285. A limited number of low cost replacement car seats are for those who qualify. Children who need a replacement seat must be present with parent or legal guardian.
