Car seats

If you’ve got a car, you must have a car seat. Your baby must always go in their seat, including when you bring them home from the hospital. It’s illegal and very dangerous to carry your baby in your arms in a vehicle.

The safest way for your baby to travel is in a rear-facing infant car seat either on the front or back seat. This is held in place by the adult safety belt. Please ensure:

  • The car seat is fitted correctly
  • You don't place a rear-facing infant care seat in the front passenger seat if your car is fitted with an air bag
  • You don't buy a second-hand car seat as it may have been damaged in an accident
