Today we got our car seats installed!
Yes, that's right, we paid someone a small fee to install the car seats.
The one store where we registered has a certified car seat installation expert and we made an appointment with her and she installed everything. She also walked us through how to put the car seat in the car and tips for traveling.
Back in the day, people rode home from the hospital holding their babies in the front seat.
So it's no wonder that now there are car seat installation experts.
Could we have installed the car seats ourselves? Of course.
However, if we were given the opportunity to have to read one less baby equipment manual and get an expert to install something that's so important, oh we are taking it!
We both have the base in our car and for now I have the actual car seat in my car. But this way we can switch between cars.
TIP: Buy 2 bases but only one infant car seat!
I assumed the car seat would go on the side but we were told that due to side impact collisions, it's safest to have the car seat in the middle.
