In brief: Four points

Infants are more likely to die or be hospitalized from a crash than an illness.
Babies must: 1) have the seat fastened to the car, 2) face the back window, 3) not be in front of an air bag, and 4) not be in the front seat. Never leave your baby alone in a car while you run an errand. You could lose your child to a thief or heatstroke.
