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.
If your child has outgrown his or her baby or toddler car seat, it's time to shop for a booster car seat! And there is no better brand name to look at than Safety 1st with their excellent products and testimonials; there are Safety 1st booster car seats designer to be used from infancy up to child phase!
One choice is to buy a rear-facing infant car seat (suitable for babies up to 20lbs), that will fit your baby snugly during the first few months and often comes with a handle for easy carrying. And, if you're looking for the utmost in convenience, select a travel system. Infant travel systems include a ready made car seat and stroller combination.
There are many varieties of baby car seats to choose from including brand names such as Britax, Cosco, Evenflo, Peg Perego and many more. From graco car seats to cosco car seats to britax car seats, take your pick on what type of child car seats you would like.
You may use a convertible car seat as well for infants. Then, again, you may want to stay with a design for infants, because they will fit more securely and these types tend to attach from the base of the seat. A lot of infant seats that you may purchase will attach to a stroller frame that you may also want to purchase as it will be much easier for you. The seat can be detached from the car to the stroller frame without even waking your infant. Most of the infant seats come with a base that will keep the seat attached to your car either by a latch or a safety belt. The word latch stands for lower anchors and tethers for your child that has a belt that hooks or clicks to the base to metal anchors in the car. You may not need a base for the car seat as the safety strap can secure the baby. Usually these seats come with a three point harness, but they may come with two straps that will come together as a buckle in itself. Now, most seats these days will come with a five point harness which is usually recommended.
Remember, if the passenger side of your car has an airbag, the car seat should go in the back seat, not the front seat of the car. If there is an accident and the car seat is in the front seat, the inflating airbag may cause serious injuries to your baby. Read and follow the manufacturer's instructions to insure the correct installation of the seat.
