The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in San Diego recently released new findings that 93% of parents leaving the hospital made at least one critical error when installing or using their car seat. While this is a troubling statistic, it’s an issue that can be easily addressed by spreading the word about car seat safety and proper installation.
