When you are leaving hospital

It is important to clear up any doubts that may arise regarding the safety of your baby. If you are going to take a taxi, although the law doesn’t require you to use a child seat in a taxi within an urban area, the safety of the baby is the real concern. Never forget to take a child seat and when ordering a taxi by phone, make it clear that you are going to use one.
