Before your newborn is discharged from the hospital, you'll need to have a car seat that is the right size and installed in your car correctly.
Missoula Rural Fire offers car seat fitting sessions free of charge on Saturdays 10 AM - 2 PM, by appointment. Call (406) 549-6172 to schedule an appointment.

If you cannot afford a car seat, please contact your local city-county health department so they can make a referral for a reduced cost or free car seat. This should be done a minimum of four to six weeks prior to your due date.
