Experts say this makes it especially difficult for new parents wanting to bring their baby home. 

"They have not been crash-tested so they are not safe for the little ones that are being put in them," said Kirsten Dehmlow, parent education coordinator from Presbyterian/St. Luke's, Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children. "Parents and families are buying these seats and thinking that their kids are going to be safe. If they are in a car crash, they are not going to be safe at all."
