There’s a big difference between having your baby all nice and snug in the womb, and after birth when you have to trust their safety to a car seat. We researched for weeks to find the right car seats for our twins, and then to find a place that would help make sure we’d installed it correctly! Car seats are one of the baby care items you can NOT skimp on! We did our best to find the right one – a convertible car seat – and realized when we put the girls in them for the first time that we hadn’t properly taken into account that even though the twins were full term (39 weeks), they were both kind of shrimpy compared to average infant sizes! The seats were a tad too large and needed adjustments made until the babies grew a bit more. We also found that we needed a mirror in the back seat so we could see them reflected in the rearview while they were still in the backwards facing stage.
And please remember: DO NOT BUY USED CARSEATS! You just don’t know what kind of inner structural damage they could have if they’ve already been in a crash – and you’ve got no way of truly knowing if they have or not. Also, REGISTER your carseat, so the manufacturer has a way to get in touch with you in case of recalls.
Car seats are one of the most important purchases parents make! That’s why GB places their priority on safety with the GB Asana35 AP Car Seat. Their unique 3-way FirmFit System provides Mom and Dad the ultimate peace of mind.
