Yup. you have to go there and watch a video, about car seat saftey. Pay them like 35 bucks, and they help you install it in your car. I think it's actuallyy Custer here thought. And your only allowed on per child. We got an additional one from them,, because we have two cars and had issues with moving the carseat from car to car.

I called WIC about this and they referred me to my local fire dept. they run a program through SafeKids that does free car seat checks and if your child needs a new one or has outgrown it they give you the option to buy a brand new one for $15. You need to prove your low income, like your WIC folder or food stamps card, or medical coupon ect.I went last month to see if I could get a convertible but my daughter was still only 19lbs so they didn't let me get one....

Look on craigslist too for cheap ones if WIC can't help .. get a convertible car seat so she can still be rear faced [[keep them rear faced until they absolutely can't sit comfortably anymore]] and then switch to front faced
