Car Seat Information

Every ride should be a safe ride for your newborn, This begins with the first exciting and important ride from hospital to home.

You will be provided a consent form to sign prior to going home, which will provide information on the state vehicular car seat code and informing you of the California Law requiring a car seat for your newborn to safely ride in a vehicle.

It is very important that you purchase a car seat prior to coming to the hospital and learn how to use and correctly install the car seat in your car for the ride home. You may want to visit www.seatcheck.org for more information.

Please have your car seat ready to use, securely fastened in your car’s rear seat with the harness straps in the lowest slots.
