Free Car Seat Check and Healthy Kids Day this weekend!

There is a great event happening this weekend at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. The Hockomock YMCA along with Patriot Place is hosting a Healthy Kids Day from 10 am - 2 pm on Saturday May 3. We went last year and there was lots to see and participate in. Everything from bouncy houses to fun activities and games were to be hand. One of the key things that we liked the most was a free Car Seat Check sponsored by Safety1st and Dorel Juvenile Group. 

The great people at Dorel (also based in Foxborough) were on hand along with local police officers and firemen from surrounding towns who inspected any car seats to ensure they met proper installation standards as well as were properly secured. They made sure that we were well educated in how to install and remove a car seat as well as how to place our child in it properly and ensure that the restraint system was properly configured.

I cannot stress enough how much this part of the event helped me to feel better and calmer about how our child was riding in the car properly.
