Another cars child safety seat is the booster seat, used when your child gets older, up to six. These are not child seats, and they don't include safety harnesses, so you have to use the car's own safety devices. What the booster seat does is raise the child up in the seat in order for the vehicle's safety belt to fit the child better.
There are two types of car seats for babies. The first is the bucket style infant seat, which has a handle for easy carrying and often has a permanent base that is left in the car. The seat latches into the base for travel, and can easily be released. These seats are popular for young babies, as they allow the parent to remove the entire seat from the car without disturbing a sleeping infant. Infant seats can only be used in the rear-facing position, and generally have a weight limit of 22-35 pounds.
It depends how often you will need to use them. Car seat covers that are designed to look like car seat fabric usually require quite a bit of adjusting to look right and will need fixing in place. These are ideal if you only need minimal protection for your car seats or you are covering up old or dirty car seats. These can be universal or more tailored to fit and can transform the look of the inside of your car. They are not really suitable for dogs being in the car a lot and will only provide minimal protection, you may need to use other protection on top of these. Most covers especially made for dogs are designed to be easily removable with simple headrest strips etc or can be kept in the car permanently and can be rolled up or zipped off when the car needs to be used for humans.
Infant car seats are rear-facing to offer more protection for the little ones in their early years. Most infant models are rated at around 5 - 22 lbs. These will usually be able to get most infants through year one. Then, different options can be explored in terms of child safety seats for cars.
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.
The next thing that is an important factor when it comes to Evenflo car seats is that they have a five-point safety harness. This will keep your child securely fastened into the seat itself. The buckles should be easy for you to get at, but not for your child. Many people who buy safety seats have the biggest complaint that the buckle is hard to get apart. Okay, while this may be slightly inconvenient, if you are ever in a severe accident, and this hard to get apart buckle prevents your child from getting injured, you are going to forget all about how hard it may be to get unbuckled.
