  • Thanks for this video… It has clarified so many things for me… Choosing a Car seat seemed like such a mammoth task before coming across this video…

  • I bought a baby car seat/carrier to use as a blinding mechanism to weird and wicked people who were watching and stalking my daughter. Now they don’t know whether she is a boy or a girl or an animal or what. So when you pick your car seat/carrier be sure of what you want known and unknown about your child because that car seat/carrier will certainly do the trick. Choose wisely.

  • Hi, great video, could you please advice that can i use this for 6 month old baby, as you are a Pediatrician please advice is there is any problem to the baby to travel a long trip. Thanks in advance.

  • Excelent vídeo thanks, great example for the Best installation of the baby seat, gran video el mejor ejemplo para instalar la silla porta bebé

  • Question hope I can get an answer.

    After he used the latch system I didn’t see him put on the regular car belt is that how is supposed to be? Or do both the latch and the belt?

    Thank you.

  • Can you just pull the slag from the belt? Let it click all the way up as if you stopped really hard. I don’t think mine has a seat belt cut off point like that one.

  • The thing that drives me crazy about these infant seats is why they don’t have any straps to secure them to the seat in front of them. The setup they have using the latch system does not prevent them from moving side to side. In a side impact it seems like that’d get whiplash which can be fatal for infants. Straps to secure the base to both the front and back seats would prevent this.

  • Once the beautiful baby came into view, all I could see is just how adorable she is! Blessings! =) (And, great video, thank you).

  • Everyone out here are actual mothers concerned for their children. Meanwhile, I’m just a high school student in children development just trying to get the answers for my paper ��

  • Thank you. Great video my wife and I are getting ready to have our first. Having trouble trying to decide on seat placement. Seems like middle is best. My car is a 2010 Corolla I have located the latch system on the lh and rh sides but not the middle. I’ll look again tho. Thank you so much

  • I just don’t like how I been watching these videos n everybody puts the car seat on the side when it’s safest to put in the middle

  • He was soo good explaining it. We need more Police officers doing this as part of their duties. My first child we went to the police station and they help us. She’s 12 now, my second she’s 3 and when we went to the police station for assistance they told us they are not allowed to assist with car seat installation.☹️

  • This was so extremely helpful. I’ve fallen in love completely with baby center. As a new young mom there’s so many things that I just had no clue about like the latch in cars and the base in car seats and the difference between converting car seats etc. so this is great!
