Infant Car Seats are made to keep baby safe, and when it's used correctly, they increase the newborn vehicle safety by nearly 75%.
If parents aren't careful, there could be risks associated with car seats.


Baby heads and necks are so fragile at this age that's where the concern comes into place. You don't want the babies head moving forward. Depending on the position of the car seat or the way the child is placed it has potential to block newborn's airway.

If the baby is placed in the car seat incorrectly; yes it's unfortunately possible. As they don't have head and neck control as high as possible for the head to be dropped down and for it to block their airway. We strongly advise that parents should limit the amount of time a newborn spends in a car seat.


We should be using car seats in the car not for a sleeping place. If you want to put your baby down to nap, it's better to keep them in their crib or other comfy places, because that is the safest position for them.

What experts focus most is that shouldn't alarm parents but rather bring awareness to the proper use of car seats.

Follow the manufacturer's instructions for use it properly. I think what parents should take out from this is to make sure they read the directions and manuals that come with their car and car seat.

Child passenger safety technicians agree that car seat still has the same safety benefits to children of all ages. Car Seat experts remind parents that all car seats work differently so it is very important to read and follow all instructions before placing a baby into any car seat.
