Car Seat Safety

Greenwich Hospital to hold Monthly Car Seat Safety Checks

Beginning on June 16, Greenwich Hospital will offer monthly car seat safety checks every third Thursday of the month from 8 am to 2 pm at West Putnam Medical Center, 500 W. Putnam Ave. in Greenwich.

People can schedule an appointment with a certified technician to learn how to correctly install a car seat and properly secure their child in the car seat. To make an appointment, call 203-200-KIDS or email [email protected].

Seventy-three percent of car seats are misused or improperly installed, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. Connecticut law has specific standards for rear-facing car seats, forward-facing car seats and booster seats depending on the age and weight of the baby or child. Safe car seats include a 5-point harness and chest clip, a metal splitter plate in the rear, clear labeling and other features. In addition to Greenwich Hospital, YNHHS has car seat safety checks at Bridgeport and Yale New Haven hospitals.
