Prince George’s First Throne & August Car Seat Clinic

Posted on July 25, 2013

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge brought His Royal Highness, Prince George home from the hospital Tuesday.  The whole world was watching to catch a glimpse of what the wee little prince looked like.  The future King of England was brought home by mom and dad in his first throne – his car seat.  The Duke and Duchess chose a Britax Baby-Safe car seat to bring George home from the hospital.  Unfortunately that model is only available for use in the UK. Britax has two excellent car seats available for use in Canada to bring your prince or princess home from the hospital.  The B-Safe and Chaperone are excellent choices and will work with all Britax strollers; as well as many other strollers with the use of an adapter.

The Duke and Duchess have received some criticism in the media regarding whether or not they were using their car seat correctly.  Like every other parent, bringing baby home from the hospital is overwhelming and car seats can be challenging for those who aren’t familiar with them.  The Safety Superstore had a car seat clinic this past Saturday and many car seats failed the inspection.  As many as 80% of child car seats are installed and/or used incorrectly.

The Safety Superstore will be having another car seat clinic Saturday August 17th, 2013 from 11:00am-2:00pm at our Mississauga/Oakville location.  No appointments necessary just drop in to make sure your seat is safe.

James Fitzpatrick, Child Passenger Safety Advocate, will be here installing your seat and will be able to answer all of your car seat related questions or concerns.  The clinic is with Safety Superstore Installers and Child Passenger Safe Association of Canada (CPSAC).

The Child Passenger Safety Association of Canada (CPSAC) is an organization of Canadian specialists who have come together to create a cohesive national program dedicated to the safety of children and youths while travelling in motor vehicles.
