Ensuring child car seats are properly fitted

Check it Fits!

Here at The Baby Academy we are always looking for ways to support new and expectant parents. Through our reach in our classes and our online following comes a great responsibility to provide leadership and to empower parents with up-to-date knowledge.

To deliver on this purpose, we’re promoting parents to avail of the Road Safety Authority’s ‘Check it Fits’ service, which aims to save lives by ensuring child car seats are properly fitted in cars.

Did you know that 4 out of 5 child car seats are incorrectly fitted?! The RSA want to change this statistic and we want to help them. There are a number of ‘Check it fits’ events around Ireland, which are completely free of charge.

At these events experts will fix any incorrectly fitted seats and restraints, show parents how to do it themselves and answer any queries they have. It only takes a few minutes, no appointment is necessary and it is open to all makes and models of cars and child car seats.
