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.
A high back booster seat are similar to traditional car seats and often feature a 5 point harness. Though considered to be the safest type, they are large and bulky. A high back booster would be ideal for a younger child and as a semi permanent seat in your vehicle. Many are even equipped with LATCH systems for secure installation. If you plan on moving the seat from one car to the next, this setup could be difficult to transfer.
The next thing that is an important factor when it comes to Evenflo car seats is that they have a five-point safety harness. This will keep your child securely fastened into the seat itself. The buckles should be easy for you to get at, but not for your child. Many people who buy safety seats have the biggest complaint that the buckle is hard to get apart. Okay, while this may be slightly inconvenient, if you are ever in a severe accident, and this hard to get apart buckle prevents your child from getting injured, you are going to forget all about how hard it may be to get unbuckled.
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.
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.
You need to protect your newborn as much as possible so you can transport your baby completely safe and secure. The seat for your newborn baby is probably one of the easiest to use. It is usually easy to install and secure in the car and can be carried around by the handle. The most common and most safe is a back-facing seat as this can save your baby's life during collision if installed properly. Never use a back-facing seat on the front seat of the car if you have an airbag, as this can cause great injury to your child. The infant seat can be used for children up to approximately one year but it is important to notice the specific weight limit of the seat.
