Buying a car covers of some description is essential for dog owners. Some dogs are always in the car going for walks and visits and smelly damp dog if not good on your fabric seats. It is worth investing in a cover for even the occasional trip as some dogs are car sick. There is so many dog car covers on the market it is easy to buy the wrong one and waste your money and patience with the an unsuitable cover.
The bottom line is that many child injuries resulting from car crashes could be lessened or avoided if parents observed car seat safety procedures more strictly. For example, children between 4 and 7 who sit in booster seats have a 59% lower risk of injury during a car accident than children using safety belts alone.
Children (4 years to 8 years) - Kids aged 4-8 should sit in an approved booster seat placed in the back middle position. Lap seat belt should rest securely across upper thighs, with shoulder belt placed across the chest. If the shoulder belt falls on the child awkwardly, consider purchasing a seat belt adjuster which will hold the belt in a lower, more comfortable position.
Perfect Fit for the Baby - Choose the unit to buy with your child's age, weight, and height in mind. For example, infant seats that are rear-facing only are ideal for use with infants up to 30/35 lbs, the best model I have found that will take your child to 35 lbs is the Graco Snugride 35. While convertible models can be used in rear-facing positions until the baby is about 45 lbs, the only model I have found that will go to 45 lbs is the Diono Radian RXT convertible car seat. Although recent studies have shown that if a child is under 2 their neck is still not strong enough to support the head in the event of a crash. A child under 2 is 75% less likely to incur a serious injury or die when in a rear facing seat, so making sure the seat you purchase is suitable to be used rear facing until your child is 2 years old is an important consideration. Keep in mind that the best seat for your child is the one that can offer him the best protection while riding with you. You don't have to turn him around to a front-facing position just because he reached a certain age or weight. A lot of models today offer higher limits for the rear-facing position, which as stated above is generally considered safer.
The first type of child car seats is known as an infant seat. These are generally rear-facing and are designed to fit babies providing better protection for them. They are also lighter than convertible seats and often have handles to allow for easier carrying. Most of the standard rear-facing child car seats usually hold up to 22 lb. However, there are other types which can hold babies that weigh 30 lb. When purchasing this kind of seat, ensure that you choose one which will accommodate your baby up to her first birthday.
Convertible seats are used rear facing and then convert to forward-facing for older children. They are heavier and do not come with carrying handles. The weight limit is 30-40 pounds. They come with a harness. The harness secures at the shoulders, at the hips and between the legs.
