Baby Equipment

  • If borrowing/hand-me-down, know the expiration date (should be on the seat) and whether it has been in a major accident in which case it should not be used. Expiration of car seats has to do with the foam breaking down and the plastic getting brittle over time. It is a good idea to have your first installation checked by a car seat technician. Resources and locations where car seats can be checked can be found at the following website, click on "car seats" http://www.safercar.gov
