According to SafeKids.org, 73% of car seats - or 3 out of 4 - are not used or installed correctly, a terrifying statistic for any parent. In an effort to help reduce this number, we have devoted the past 5 years to developing a car seat that can be correctly installed in just seconds and even confirms (with a smile!) that your baby has the safest ride possible – a breakthrough innovation and industry first. In this section, you can explore the various features that help make Prodigy the easiest car seat to install, find installation videos, and discover how we are making baby’s first ride home the safest.

Stop. Think. Safety Tips for Caregivers
For the best protection, keep your baby in a rear-facing car seat for as long as possible – usually until about 2 years old. You can find the exact height and weight limit on the side or back of your car seat. Kids who ride in rear-facing seats have the maximum protection for the head, neck and spine. It is especially important for rear-facing children to ride in a back seat away from the airbag.
Inch Test. Once your car seat is installed, give it a good tug at the base where the seat belt goes through it. Can you move it more than an inch side to side or front to back? A properly installed seat will not move more than an inch.
Pinch Test. Make sure the harness is tightly buckled and coming from the correct slots (check your car seat manual). With the chest clip placed at armpit level, pinch the strap at your child’s shoulder. If you are unable to pinch any excess webbing, you’re good to go.
Toys can injure your child in a crash, so be extra careful to choose ones that are soft and will not hurt your child. A small, loose toy can be dangerous and injure your baby in a crash. Secure loose objects and toys to protect everyone in the car.
