Premature baby car beds are used for transporting small preemie babies who can typically weigh less than 5 pounds. They may also have medical problems that could prevent them being able to travel in the seated or reclining position in a normal infant car seat or carrier. These preemie car beds typically secure to the back seat of the car using the existing car seat belts, but the method of attachment can vary model by model, so check with the supplier or manufacturer.
A child car seat should be high on your to-buy list. You'll need one to bring your baby home from the hospital and for every car trip thereafter. 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.
When you are starting out, you have the option of putting your newborn into a convertible car seat or a dedicated infant seat. Although convertible types can be forward facing as well as rear facing and will hold your baby until he or she is two tears old, the infant car seat is a much safer and more comfortable choice.
It is recommended by experts that an infant car seat or premature baby car bed is only fitted in the rear of the car. Infant carriers must be used in a rear-facing position until your child either exceeds the manufacturers weight limit of the seat or reaches 2 years of age. Travelling in the rear of the car and also rearward facing reduces your child's risk of serious injury in the event of a car crash by over 50% so this is advice that should be followed to ensure the maximum safety of your child.
When shopping, look for a design that is sturdy, but light and easy to carry. Since your baby will sleep a lot, especially when riding in the car, you'll also want to select a model which is easily detachable. This way baby can continue to sleep when being moved from the car to the house, instead of you having to wake them up.
Convertible car seats can be used rear-facing until the baby is old enough and then they can be turned around. This saved you money, because you can use the seat longer. These can be used for a couple of years depending on the size of the child. They take up more room and are not meant to be taken in and out of the car. They are rated to be used rear-facing for higher height and weight, so they are great for babies that are bigger or taller.
