How to Choose the Right Car Seat

Being that I’m a mama of three under the age of 5 I have had my fair share of anxiety when it comes to choosing the right car seat. There’s so much that goes into choosing the correct seat for your child. From car seat laws to size and safety there’s so much that goes into the research and purchase and at times can be extremely overwhelming.

Recently I came across The Baby Cubby’s Car Seat Guide and had to share it with you all because it totally makes choosing the right car seat anxiety free! JJ was born 5 years ago and since then the laws have changed here in California. Did you know as of August 2016 the new law states that children should be rear-facing until the age of 2? With JJ it was the age of 1 and 20 pounds!!!! Recently I had to switch Jameson back around after reading the guide and boy oh boy did he hate the change back to reverse but it definitely gave my mama heart so much comfort in knowing that heaven forbid there ever is an accident he will be in the safest position.

Hope this guide is as helpful to you as I found it was for me. Motherhood is hard enough why should finding and choosing a car seat be an additional stress!
