Identify the parts. A car seat will likely come with two parts - the base and the actual cradle itself. The base part is what will actually be in the car, while the baby cradle (seat) is removable and portable - the baby cradle can be taken out of the car and easily attaches to most grocery carts (the front part where bigger kids sit) and restaurant high chairs (move the standard restaurant high chair upside down and you will have yourself a cradle holder).
Give it a try. Place the booster flat on the backseat of your car and run the seat belt around it to hold it down - read your instructions and they will have detailed graphs on how the seat belt hurts. Also look at your car manual as they will have special instructions and buckles for car seats
Get confirmation. Move your baby seat cradle on top of the base (remember, it always faces the rear, when your child is old enough you will have to buy a different type of car seat that faces forward towards you). With your hand, sternly move your baby car seat from side to side, if the cradle is easily swaying your car booster is not securely fastened. Remove the cradle and pull the car seat belt as snug as you can and try again
Get double confirmation. Call your local fire department and make an appointment to stop by - they will check and confirm your car seat is installed securely. Remember, this could save your child's life so 10 minutes with your local fire department is only a very small inconvenience!
