Deann Macias Car Seat April 16th, 2019 - 03:22:50
There are many different types of car seat products, but here are the main types of car safety seats. One of them is the convertible seat. This is a car seat that has the seat that can be used either rear facing, as well as forward facing. This is one of the most practical types of seats, because it changes as your child grows. Now car seats are not cheap, and can range from around fifty dollars to well into the hundreds, so having a seat that changes as your child grows can save you a lot of money, considering how fast a baby grows in the first few years. Whether it faces back or forward depends on the weight of your child. Some of these Evenflo cars seats can even change to a booster seat as well; these are also called the combination car seat.
ISOFIX car seats are designed to solve all these problems. The ultimate aim is that any ISOFIX child car seat you buy will fit your car simply by plugging it into the ISOFIX points. The other benefit of ISOFIX is that it will create a rigid link between the child seat and the car to provide extra solidity. It is important to make sure that any ISOFIX seats that you use in the vehicle are approved for it. It is not yet the case that any ISOFIX seat will fit in every car with ISOFIX points. To fit an ISOFIX seat into some cars you may either to use a top tether kit or an ISOFIX car seat that has a drop down leg to stabilise the car seat to the car floor. Please ensure your car is suitable for whichever seat you choose by consulting the relevant manufacturers web site.
Perfect Fit for the Baby - Choose the unit to buy with your child's age, weight, and height in mind. For example, infant seats that are rear-facing only are ideal for use with infants up to 30/35 lbs, the best model I have found that will take your child to 35 lbs is the Graco Snugride 35. While convertible models can be used in rear-facing positions until the baby is about 45 lbs, the only model I have found that will go to 45 lbs is the Diono Radian RXT convertible car seat. Although recent studies have shown that if a child is under 2 their neck is still not strong enough to support the head in the event of a crash. A child under 2 is 75% less likely to incur a serious injury or die when in a rear facing seat, so making sure the seat you purchase is suitable to be used rear facing until your child is 2 years old is an important consideration. Keep in mind that the best seat for your child is the one that can offer him the best protection while riding with you. You don't have to turn him around to a front-facing position just because he reached a certain age or weight. A lot of models today offer higher limits for the rear-facing position, which as stated above is generally considered safer.
Baby Trend has excelled in providing car seats and car seat bases that allow safe, secure and easy to install travel solutions for your baby or infant. If you're looking to pick up an extra Baby Trend car seat base, then there are currently four options available to you. Many parents make the mistake of thinking that if they already own a Baby Trend car seat, then they are restricted to that one car seat base model. However, many of the bases that Baby Trend sells are compatible across their entire infant car seat range and since each base has different benefits, it allows you to choose a base that is ideal for your specific needs and vehicle.
Second, the seat just looked and felt so much better than many of the other similar seats. It was a bit heavy, 26 lbs., but that was not so bad considering it had a steel frame and felt really, really solid. The fabric is easy to clean with a damp cloth and the seat cushion can even be removed and thrown in the washing machine. It really felt durable and that was a high priority for me.
It's obvious why we use these seats to protect our babies: according to the National Highway Traffic Association, traffic accidents have consistently been named as the number one cause of death for children between the ages of four and fourteen. Additionally, this same report concluded that more than 50,000 injuries could have been reduced or eliminated all together if infants were properly secured in baby seats. Another shocking figure: only 67% of parents secure children ages four and up in car seats. It's time to put car seat safety first - and the first step to doing so is to pick the right car seat to keep your bundle of joy safe and sound.
