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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Installation instructions can be obtained from the car seat manufacturer, from your auto manual, the NHTSA.gov, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and Parents.com. Parenting slide shows can be found at parenting.com. The NHTSA.gov website has a link to professional inspectors. More than 95% of car seats are installed incorrectly. Be safe. Make an appointment. Hospitals, fire departments and police stations will assist you with no fees. They will even install the seat.
