With an infant car seat, you also can move your baby from car to house or vice versa without waking him or her up--a plus for both of you. Note also that extra bases are available so you can keep a secured base in each of your vehicles. Your baby may outgrow an infant car seat quickly and become too heavy for you to use it as a carrier. As a result, you may find yourself having to buy a convertible car seat after your baby is 6 to 9 months old. However, our advice is still to start with an infant seat before moving up to a convertible seat.
There are 2 kinds of rear-facing car seats. There are infant-only seats and convertible seats. Infant car seats are small and have a handle for carrying the seat. Many of these come with a stroller system that the seat can snap into. Infant car seats can not be installed front-facing. Infant car seats can only be used for up to 22 to 30 pounds depending on the seat. Each manufacture is different, so be sure to check their specifications. They are more commonly used for infants, because they can be used as a carrier also. The baby can be set in them in the grocery store, doctors office or where ever you go. Make sure to keep your baby strapped in at all times, to prevent them from slipping out.
After the infant stage, the toddler and above stage can be in a forward-facing unit or convertible, for those that only want to buy one product that will last for several years. Many parents choose the ones that can also be used in a travel system like with strollers and extra stay-in-car bases. This makes traveling with a baby much more convenient for the whole family.
Most car owners want to use their car for humans too. There are rear car covers which can be unzipped in half allowing passenger and dog to share the back seat. Most good covers also have access to seatbelts so that even if you don't remove the cover the seatbelts can still be accessed. For front seats there are covers that can be discreetly rolled up into a cushion.
Once non-compulsory, many states have enforced laws requiring booster car seats for children up to 8 years old. Older children have a higher rate of injury than younger ones for several reasons. Many move the car belt under the arm or behind their them. They tend to slide to the edge of the seat or slump downward. Older children may find vehicle seats and car belts uncomfortable, so they tend not to buckle up.
