Car Seat Recommendations

One of your most important jobs as a parent is keeping your child safe when riding in a vehicle.

Each year, thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. Proper use of car safety seats helps keep children safe. But, because so many different seats are on the market, many parents find this overwhelming. If you are an expectant parent, consider working with a certified passenger safety technician (CPST or CPS technician) before your baby is born to ensure a safe ride home from the hospital.
The type of seat your child needs depends on several things, including age, size, and developmental needs. Here is more information from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) about choosing your child's most appropriate car safety seat.

Visit the page for guidance on choosing your child's most appropriate car safety seat.

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 this site frequently to ensure that the products your child is using have not been recalled by their manufacturer or the federal government.

Traveling with Children

Children may face the same health risks as their parents during travel, but the health consequences can be more serious. For example, some illnesses can be challenging to recognize in children, especially if they can’t talk yet to express their feelings, or children may be more likely to encounter health risks, such as animals, because of their size and curiosity. If you are planning to travel with children, familiarize yourself with the information on this page to help everyone stay safe and healthy.
Visit the CDC™ Traveling with Children page for helpful resources on travel, including:

• Safe food and water precautions, diarrhea management, and insect protection when traveling abroad
• Modifying the immunization schedule
• Traveling while pregnant
• Travel and breastfeeding
• International adoptions
