You may have heard that 80 percent of child car seats are installed incorrectly. This sounds alarming, but in fact, the most common errors are simple ones that can be easily corrected:Problem: Turning a child from a rear-facing restraint to a forward-facing restraint too soon.
Solution: Keep children in a rear-facing car safety seat until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their car safety seat's manufacturer (The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends keeping children rear-facing until 2 years old if possible.)
Problem: The harness straps are too loose.
Problem: The retainer clip on the chest harness is too low.
Problem: The child car seat is too loose.
Solution: Don’t rush your child into a bigger car seat or seat belt. Follow your car seat instruction manual or seat label for your seat's weight and height limits.
