* nationally certified Child Passenger Safety Technician Instructor & mum *
As a mum, I’ve been exactly where you are - worried about every aspect of my child’s seat, doubting my skills and abilities, feeling overwhelmed by all of the information and misinformation, and looking for support. The reality is, car seats are challenging. And quirky. And sometimes, downright frustrating.
It's easy to become overwhelmed by the differing advice and information that circulates, so I’m here to help ensure that as parents and caregivers you have the skills and confidence to install and use your seat properly 100% of the time. Judgement free!
Leaving the NICU with our first, I was certain that someone would stop me and show me how to properly harness my little guy. Then reality set in and without so much as a peek (or a peep), we were out the doors and on our own. The truth is that we made some serious and dangerous mistakes. And no, that harness was not tightened securely!
At Safe Seats Ottawa, our mission is to help you gain the confidence to use and install your child’s car seat or booster properly and the peace of mind that comes with that confidence. Being able to deliver that security is one of the reasons Safe Seats Ottawa was born!
