    Canadian carseat phamplets . . . anyone have?

    Calling all Canadians!
    Do you have or have you made up a phamplet or fact sheet on carseats? If you have one where did you get them? If you made one would you let me look at it? We have a MnM's (Mom n' Mentor's) program at our church and I would like to put in carseat info. in the package for all the moms. The Church told me if I came up with something they would print them. So what should I include?

    Re: Canadian carseat phamplets . . . anyone have?

    The one I've seen is SGI's, and I don't recomend that. It's outdated and seriously innacurate for current reccomendations.
    I think the big things to put in there are rear-facing to the maximum weight of the seat, harnessed till 48lbs (don't our regulations suck?), and boostered until they pass the 5 step test and outgrow their booster seat. Definately reccomend to have the instal inspected by a tech, so they can be sure they are doing it right! Covering the latch system would also be good to have in there.

    Here's a link to Child Safety Link here in Nova Scotia.

    http://www.childsafetylink.ca/safetyinfo-carseat.asp

    If you scroll to the bottom there's a link to a PDF file called a Parent's Guide to Car Seats. It uses Nova Scotia legislated standards and is based on a similar book put out in BC. It's quite good.

    Try this link
    www.kidsinsafeseats.ca Its from Newfoundland, click on KISS Publications

    Its my NL carseat Action Group, they have pamphlets you can download right off the sight, I worked on a lot of the originals (they have been updated many times since then!) But they are good.
