A warning for Colorado parents: Watch out for counterfeit car seats
An important warning for parents to look out for; is counterfeit car seats. Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children told CBS Colorado at least two fake car seats have been found recently.
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."
