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.
Both the infant carrier type of seat and convertible seat are suitable for most infants from birth. The convertible type though has a longer lifespan than the infant carrier and hence may be more cost-effective if you are looking for a best value for money solution. It's also worth remembering that if you are looking for a convertible type of car seat, it can be worth spending a little extra to get a better quality seat with easily removable covers. Sometimes these covers can be fully replaced if they get too worn. All these factors should be considered when selecting the correct seat for 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.
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.
Third, when my son was sitting in the seat he seemed comfortable. My neighbor had bought this car seat a few weeks back and had offered to let me try it in my car. So one day, we adjusted the seat for my son, put the seat in my Toyota and took him for a drive. He sat snugly in the car seat with a 5 point harness, without the seat wobbling or creating any problems for him whatsoever! He even fell asleep after about 15 minutes of driving. His head did not bob, but laid against the wing of the seat.
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.
