Car Seat


A car seat is required in order to take your baby home. As many as 73% of car seats are not installed properly. To insure your car seat is installed correctly, please take advantage of a free car seat inspection before your delivery.

Assemble and install your baby’s car seat in your vehicle, then book an appointment with one of the car seat inspection sites listed below. These locations offer free car seat inspections by certified technicians.
