Car seat expiration?

So I didn't know that existed. I'm sure it makes sense. If I don't remember how long ago it was purchased, how can I find out it's expired?

  • Most are 5-6 years and there should be a manufacture date molded into the seat somewhere. If not then the manual and if you don't have that then the serial number and phone number from the manufacturer will do.

  • most of them are 6 years i believe. I would look up your specific brand to be sure though.

  • Most carseats expire 6 years after the date of manufacture. There should be a stamp or a sticker somewhere on the seat that says "do not use after XXXX". If you can't find this info... you can try calling the maker of the seat and hopefully they should be able to help you.
