Car Seat Recommendations

As a parent, it is your job to protect your child when riding in a vehicle. Using car seats properly helps keep children safe. But with so many different types of car seats on the market, understanding how to use them correctly can be overwhelming for parents. Visit the AAP’s Car Seat Safety Information page for guidance on choosing the most appropriate car safety seat for your child.

Product Recalls

Child products, such as cribs and toys are often recalled due to a defect or hazard. It’s important to pay close attention to recalled consumer goods to protect your child from dangerous items. Visit a Consumer Product Safety site frequently to ensure that the products your child is using have not been recalled by their manufacturer or the federal government: Consumer Product Safety.
