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.
How do I know when my child is ready for a booster seat?
A big question some new parents ask is should they purchase or use a second hand seat? That can be a tough question. A portable car seat helps prevent serious injuries in case of a car accident, so you want to find out if the seat has even been in an accident. If so, the frame not be properly aligned, which comprises the strength of the car seat and the safety of your child.
Now I advise you to keep the convertible seat facing the rear of the car until twenty-three months or until your child reaches at least forty pounds which along with the recommend height limits by the manufacturer. When your child meets these requirements you can turn the seat to the front of the car. It can be said that the longer you keep your child facing the rear the better. This is what the Health Educator and Certified Child Passenger Safety Tech believes from John Hopkins Children's Safety Center in Baltimore, Maryland. The movement of the baby can cause your baby to wake up when in the front direction and this could hinder even small trips to your local grocery store.
Parents may find that one of the most stressful tasks isn't giving birth, picking schools or balancing schedules but...picking a car seat! New models are continuously making their way onto the market and parents scrutinize over every detail that will best suit their child. Taking notes on the child's weight, length, and age will help parents easily cross off seats that won't fit their child. It will also let parents see how much room it gives their growing children. If parents plan on using the seat for a long term basis, it is good to know how long the product has until the child outgrows max height and weight restrictions.
The second type of seat is a convertible seat. These seats have a larger weight range, and can be flipped from the rear-facing position to the forward-facing position when baby is big enough. Although far more expensive, with some models carrying weight limits ranging from 5-100 pounds, it might be the only seat you ever have to buy. Convertible seats are not portable and remain in the car at all times.
