The car seat may be the most important safety product you can buy for your new baby. The number one cause of death in children is car accidents, and a properly installed and used car seat can reduce your child's risk of death or serious injury in a crash. Unfortunately, as many as 70% of these seats in use today are either improperly installed or not used correctly. Learn the basics of these seats before you take your precious cargo on the road.
There are two types of car seats for babies. The first is the bucket style infant seat, which has a handle for easy carrying and often has a permanent base that is left in the car. The seat latches into the base for travel, and can easily be released. These seats are popular for young babies, as they allow the parent to remove the entire seat from the car without disturbing a sleeping infant. Infant seats can only be used in the rear-facing position, and generally have a weight limit of 22-35 pounds.
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.
Many infant car seats come with a base for the car. You attach the base in the car and then you can just pop the car seat into it. This is nice because you don't have to mess with the seat belts every time you put your baby in the car. You have the option to buy extra bases to use if you have multiple cars. Some car seats can be put in with or without the base. That might be something you'll want to look for. Then if you ride with someone else you won't have to move the base out of your car to use in another car.
The best and safest type of car seat for newborns is an infant car seat that is rear-facing. They are convenient with an easy to use carrier that is detachable and mounts onto a base that stays in the car. When it is time to get out of the car, you just click and take the seat with baby in it. You can also buy additional bases if necessary.
Infant seats. These rear-facing seats are for babies up to 22 pounds. They allow infants to recline at an angle that doesn't interfere with breathing and protects them best in a crash. Many strollers are now designed to accommodate infant car seats. All infant car-seat models come with a handle, and nearly all have a base that secures to your vehicle with LATCH connections or a vehicle safety belt, a convenience that lets you remove the seat and use it as a carrier. You can strap most infant seats into a car without a base, using the vehicle safety belts, but most people don't use them that way.
