Child safety and injury prevention

Toddler keeps getting out of his car seat?

It is important to ensure that your toddler’s car seat is properly installed and that they are securely buckled in at all times while in the car. Double check the installation and make sure the straps are adjusted to fit your child snugly. It may also be helpful to explain to your child the importance of staying buckled up in the car seat for their safety. Consistently reinforcing this message and using positive reinforcement techniques such as praising your child when they stay buckled up can also be effective.
