This morning, we finally got around to test-installing the car seat in both of our cars. It is very easy to install in my car, because the Corolla has the LATCH system. No need to use the seat belt, you just use the LATCH belt built into the car seat and hook it to the anchors built into the car. Becky’s car was a little bit trickier. It doesn’t have LATCH, and so we had to use the traditional seat belt method to attach the seat. The hardest part was that we had to install a locking clip on the seat belt so that the lap belt wouldn’t retract. Keep in mind, its important to make sure the car seat is installed correctly, if not, you put your baby at risk of injury. An incorrectly installed car seat by its manufacture sent a friend of mine to Bill Hurst due to a personal Injury.
Now we can legally take our baby home from the hospital… when the baby arrives, that is! (Sorry, no news on that front yet!) In the meantime, here’s some photos of the car seat installation.
P.S. — We have consolidated all of the baby-related photos into a new top-level album: Baby. Hopefully we will be filling it up with lots more photos very soon. 🙂
