Once a child has outgrown a rearwards facing seat, the best option is to use a Group 1 seat with an integral harness, the large area of the harness helps to reduce the risk of injury if there is a crash. The bottom attachment between the legs will also prevent the child from sliding under, and out of the harness. They can be used in the front or rear of the car but it is safer to put them in the rear especially if there is a passenger airbag in the front. Once again it is safest to keep children in this type of car seat until they have outgrown it.

Convenience factor with this stage of car seat is that most models will have a carry handle enabling you to easily remove and carry the baby without removing them from the car seat especially handy if the baby is asleep and may also fit onto corresponding pushchair converting it to a travel system.
Pre 2002 car models without the LATCH system can be customized to include this invaluable feature. It is also advisable to consult your manufacturer or auto dealer for more information. For those using the traditional tethering system using the car seat shoulder and lap belts, it is highly advisable to test the firmness of the buckled up seat. What this means is that the seat should not move over an inch from a firm push. If it does, it is best to secure the belts with a locking clip. A locking clip has a shape just like a big paper clip and fits around the belt. It fills the space between the belt and buckle thus firmly securing the safety seat in place.The locking clips are available at most auto part stores.

In fact, hospitals and birthing centers generally won't let you leave by car with your newborn if you don't have one. Every state requires that kids up to 4 years of age ride in a car seat; many require booster seats for older children.
