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.
Once your infant weighs twenty pounds or the top of their head is near the top edge of the seat, it will be time to change to a forward facing style seat. A forward facing seat is more upright and the higher end models adjust to allow toddlers a more horizontal position which means a more comfortable sleeping position during those long drives.
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.
Design or aesthetic. Covers for car seats can come in different designs. If you want a new set of car seat covers simply because you want to give the interior of your car a makeover, you can look into sets of these covers for seats that come in different designs. You'll even be surprised to find that there are those with cartoon designs that are famous to girls and teens everywhere that you can buy in stores selling different kinds of car accessories. There are even covers for car seats that have designer logos in them. You cannot go wrong with a well-designed cover for car seats if you want to make your car look more stylish, sleek and chic inside.
Booster seats. Will hold a child from 30-100 pounds, depending on the model. These are for older children and high-back boosters are used for cars without a head rest or high seat back. If the seat belt in the car still doesn't fit your child properly, this is a good product to have.
As a single mom of a wonderful two and a half-year old boy, it is imperative that I protect him the best I can. A few months ago, he was about to outgrow his rear-facing seat, and it was time to find something I could afford. I started by talking to other moms, reading internet reviews, visiting various stores to see what they had and learning as much about car seats as I could.
