Some of the convertible car seats come with as many as 5 reclining positions. When your child naps in the car and is forward facing then the multiple adjustments can keep smaller children correctly inclined. When rear-facing the seat should be adjusted to a proper angle in order to keep your baby's airway clear.
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.
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.
After noting the types of child car seats available on the market, then you can choose one for your child. Here are 3 tips to choosing which car seat is suitable for your child. The first tip is to ask other parents for advice on the best place to purchase child car seats. These parents will direct you to stores they believe sell quality car seats. In addition, you need to read parent's comments on the highly ranked child's car seat websites so that you choose a brand that it is the best. With the comments you will be able to find information from real parents on the kind of seats that are easy to install and those that have comfortable armrests.
Did you know an overwhelming 3 out of 4 child safety seats are improperly installed? This information is according to the National Traffic Safety Administration. This is also despite the fact that almost all baby car seats come with a user manual and most parents are literate enough to read through and follow directions on how to install their child car seat correctly.
