Monthly Car Seat Tip:  Make sure your car seat harness is snug, without pinching any slack.
The car seat harness needs to fit snug against your child's body.  You should not be able to pinch any slack and the harness should lie flat against the shoulders and chest.  Chest clip should be at armpit level. Avoid bulky coats or clothing under the harness as may not be able to adjust the harness snugly against the child's body.
