Appropriately using a child safety seat is the best protection you can provide your child during transportation. Holy Cross Health offers a KISS (Kids in Safety Seats) car seat rental program. Reservations must be made in advance. Car seats are rented for a period of no more than 9 months or until your child is 26 inches long or weighs 20 pounds. You must attend a 30-minute class where you will view a short film and learn to properly use the car seat.
If you would like to rent a car seat, please call the Holy Cross Health Perinatal Education Office at 301-754-7158 one month prior to your delivery date to make arrangements.
