Join Graco this week for a car seat safety Twitter event

September is safety month and, as you may have seen here on the Graco blog, we kicked off the month with some important tips drivers should always keep in mind when transporting our little ones.

Carrying on the road safety theme, we also wanted to give parents the opportunity to get answers to their car seat safety questions in real time. So, this Thursday, September 30, we’re hosting two car seat safety Twitter events with Graco’s resident car seat safety expert, Carol Helminski.

Carol is a NHTSA certified car seat technician and instructor with more than 20 years of child advocacy and car seat safety expertise. During the party, Carol will be tweeting from @Gracobaby and answering your technical questions. Carol can also offer advice on the best products available to meet your child’s car seat needs. I’ll be asking Carol the questions from @GracoKelly so be sure to follow me there as well!

If you have a question, or just need some tips on how to navigate the world of car seats (there is A LOT to know!), then we would love you to join in the party!

Here are the full event details:

Date & Times: Thursday, September 30th at Noon and 4:00 p.m.  [EST]

Duration: 45 mins

Twitter Chat Hashtag: #GracoSafety

Expert: NHTSA certified car seat technical and instructor, Carol Helminski – tweeting from @Gracobaby

Moderator: Kelly Voelker of @gracokelly

What is a Twitter Party? We don’t blame you if you’ve never participated in one before (This will be Carol’s first introduction to Twitter herself!) – just follow this link for all the information you need on how a Twitter Party works and then join us this Thursday, September 30!

And as an added bonus — If you join us for the event during the designated hours, you’ll be eligible to win one of two Graco Highback TurboBooster® Car Seats that we’ll give away during each event! All you have to do is tweet @Gracobaby a car seat safety question, or your best piece of car seat advice using the hash tag mentioned above, and you’ll be added to the random drawing that will be announced at the end of the event.

We hope you can join us and, if there’s a question you really want answered, be sure to leave us a comment below or tweet it to @Gracobaby and we’ll make sure Carol answers it for you on that day.

We look forward to tweeting with you :)

    oh i have a question, why is it that the Safe Seat is supposed to accomidate a child up to 30pounds and 32 inches? My son at 7months was only 18pounds and 25inches long and couldn’t fit in the seat at all. We were so dissapointed. I tried evertything to adjust the seat, even called customer care. We love our graco products (especially the Nautilus as it’s the only seat the accomidates our 6yr old daughter who weighs 40pounds. I just wish we could’vce kept him in his safe seat longer.
    this doesn’t have to be brought up on the twitter party, just wondering
