Quick card Ideas

If I was looking to print a quick card with facts, what should I put?

I like:

Recommended to rearface to 2 or max of seat.

Kids need boosters till the seat belt fits correctly. Ask me how.

Kids are 500% safer rearfacing than forward facing. Ask me why.

I would change some of the wording, but this is the gist of it.

What would you like to see?

Rear face until at least 2 years old or the max limits of convertible car seat.

Big kids need boosters until the adult belt fits correctly. Use the 5 step test.

Kids are 500% safer rearfacing than forward facing.

Car seats should not move more than 1" when checking for tightness.

LATCH is often not allowed in the center seat and has a weight limit. Check your car & car seat manual.

-Just a quick reply with DD2 sitting on my lap. Sorry if there are typos, etc. :p

ETA: I wouldn't pick only one point to write "Ask me why". If this card is an attempt to open a line of communication RE car seats, I'd have "Ask me why..." centered at the top or bottom.

ETA again: "Ask me why..." centered at the top and your contact info centered at the bottom. :)

Thanks everyone! :)

Here is what I was thinking:


Kids are 500% safer rearfacing than forward facing.

Car seats should not move more than 1", at the belt guide, when checking for tightness.

It is recommended to rear face till age 2, or the max of the seat.

A harness should be as snug as a hug. No more than a finger under strap at shoulder.

Straps should be at or below for rear facing and at or above for forward facing.

Big kids need boosters until the adult belt fits correctly. Use the 5 step test.

Like monstah said, how about including verbiage about RF'ing until at least 2, that way it suggests longer (along with your "or max of seat") if possible?

I went with the last one that I posted, along with adding that carseats expire and if need assistance, contact a certified tech.
