Oklahoma’s new car seat law keeps kids safer, longer

No Comments 30 October 2015

Oklahoma’s car seat law changes on November 1 to help keep our children safer in vehicles. Under the new law, children under 2 years old stay in a rear-facing car seat. Children up to 4 years old must ride in a forward-facing car seat with a 5-point harness. Children 4 through 8 are required to be in a belt-positioning booster seat.

Why the change?

Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommends keeping your child rear-facing until at least age 2? Rear-facing protects the most fragile parts of a young child’s body: the head, neck, and spine. Positioning your car seat to face the back of the vehicle gives your child the best possible protection in the event of a collision.

Chicco logo

One of the favorite car seats at Green Bambino is the Chicco NextFit convertible. Engineered with innovative safety and convenience features, the NextFit is the easiest convertible car seat to install accurately and securely in a wide range of vehicles. The NextFit stays with your child from the beginning infant stage all the way through pre-school or later (up to 65lbs).

Features:

  • ReclineSecure 9-position Leveling System adjusts with one hand for an accurate fit to most vehicles.
  • Two RideRight bubble levels indicate the correct angle in both rear and forward facing modes.
  • SuperCinch Latch tightener with force-multiplying technology helps achieve a tight and secure fit.
  • 6 Position height-adjustable headrest for growing children.
  • One-pull harness tightener for quick and secure fit.
  • Integrated slide path makes it easy to re-position the Latch strap when switching from rear to foward facing.
  • Removable cup holder for use on either side on the seat.

Parents often express concern when their rear-facing child’s feet begin to touch the back of the vehicle seat. Rest assured that this is not a safety concern. In terms of comfort, children are extremely flexible and will have no trouble finding a position that is most comfortable to them while safely riding rear-facing in their car seat.

Green Bambino offers complimentary car seat installations and checks for all car seats purchased at our store. Checks are available for seats purchased elsewhere for a $30 fee. Please call 405-848-2330 for an appointment with one of our Child Passenger Safety Technicians.

Positioning your car seat to face the back of the vehicle gives your child the best possible protection in the event of a collision.

Fllo_ExtendedRF

Clek’s Foonf and Fllo convertible seats have been designed to not only to the AAP recommendation, but also international best practices for extended rear-facing use, which is to accommodate children in the rear-facing position until their fourth birthday and up to 50 lb. In rear-facing mode, Foonf and Fllo’s Anti-Rebound bar improves stability by limiting rotation of the car seat, helping protect your child’s head from impact in the case of a collision.

Parents often express concern when their rear-facing child’s feet begin to touch the back of the vehicle seat. Rest assured that this is not a safety concern. In terms of comfort, children are extremely flexible and will have no trouble finding a position that is most comfortable to them while safely riding rear-facing in their car seat.

Green Bambino is excited to announce the launch of a brand new product category – car seats!

3 Comments 04 January 2013

In September, my husband and I took a three-day certification course to become Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs). We took the course because we encounter lots of babies and toddlers in car seats and felt we could continue our mission of providing the information parents need to make thoughtful decisions for their children.

Soon after we became certified, we realized that as CPSTs who own a natural parenting store, we could do more than just provide information, we could provide the products, too. In October, my husband and I attended the annual children’s product expo and spent many, many hours researching, interviewing and making decisions about which car seats to bring to Green Bambino.

After much deliberation, we decided on Diono and Recaro. Some of our considerations when choosing:

  • Safety – Which seats are easy for parents to install safely? As CPS techs, we understand that if the child restraint is difficult to install, it’s likely the child will be improperly secured, despite the best efforts of parents. We also looked for seats with excellent crash-test results, keeping your child safe.
  • Longevity – it is recommended to keep children rear-facing as long as possible, so we looked for seats that rear-faced to a high weight limit. We also looked for seats that have longer lives so it’s less likely your seat will expire before you are finished using it.
  • Sustainability – Recaro seats are assembled in the United States, keeping jobs here. We’ve also got our eye on a convertible car seat that will release in the next few weeks or months that is made completely in North America and even offers a recycling program for used seats.

Neither Diono or Recaro are the least expensive seats on the market, but we wanted to choose seats that had a balance of safety, durability, and ease of use. These two brands stood out from the rest.

 

These seats are currently in stock and ready for you to take home today. (Our goal is to keep these seats in stock at all times, but occasionally there may be a short delay while awaiting reorders.)  We also have demo seats available for you to test fit in your car. If neither brand is compatible for your needs, we are happy to make suggestions as to brands that might work better. In the next few days, we’ll be posting more information about what to look for when buying a car seat and tips on installing and using them safely.

We also provide car seat checks and installation help. Please call to make an appointment for this service. You’ll need to set aside 1-2 hours, bring your vehicle manual and child restraint manual, and old towel, and be prepared to crawl around your car with us. We won’t just install your seat – we teach you how to do it safely and securely.

When you purchase anything from Green Bambino, you know you are choosing from a thoughtfully curated selection of products designed to make your life easier. We appreciate your continued support of our local business and are excited to bring these new products and services to parents in Oklahoma.
