If you do not already have a car safety seat, be sure to purchase one now, as you must have a car seat when your baby is discharged. Your car safety seat must fit properly in your car, and since every car seat and every car is different, be sure to read the owner’s manual for your car seat and for your car.
To make sure your car seat is correctly installed in your car, attend one of the free car safety seat classes offered monthly by the Gainesville/Hall County SAFE KIDS Coalition, which is led by Northeast Georgia Medical Center and Health System. Trained child passenger safety specialists will provide you with classroom instruction and then offer hands-on training installing your car seat in your car. Call 770-219-1813 to register.
