Tips for Positioning Your Child's Harness Straps
Does it ever feel like your child has grown by inches overnight and that every time you turn around, they have outgrown another pair of pants? It is important to remember that young kids can also outgrow the harness positioning in their car seat. Here are some key points to keep in mind when it comes to harness
- When using a rear-facing car seat, the harness straps should be positioned at or below your child’s shoulders.
- In a forward-facing car seat, the harness straps should be at or above your child’s shoulders.
- The harness should be snug. You should not be able to pinch the harness webbing together when you test at the child’s shoulders.
- It is always important to read and follow the instruction manual that came with your child’s car seat for specific instructions, including height and weight limits, provided by your manufacturer.
