This year, the group is highlighting the safe selection and use of child restraint seats, helping adults to choose the children’s car seat that best suits their needs.

As part of Baby Safety Month, the association will hold events in correlation with National Seat Check Saturday on September 20th, followed by National Child Passenger Safety Week September 21st-27th, at various locations throughout the U.S. The events serve as reminders to parents and those who care foryoung children to use a child safety seat in the rear of theirvehicles, and to restrain children properly in accordance with size,weight and age.
