More and more parents are discovering the savings benefits and uncluttered convenience associated with being able to re-use their single child car seat in multiple cars. Often your baby will travel in both mom and dad's cars at different times, or enjoy frequent outings in their grandparents' car, giving them the opportunity to spoil their grandchild and giving you a short period to recharge your batteries. Whatever the reasons for needing to safely carry your infant or child in different vehicles, traditionally you either had to purchase a separate car seat for each vehicle or go through the laborious 'remove from one car and install in the other' routine. The now commonplace car seat base, allows you to simply install additional seat bases in each car and quickly click the actual infant car seat into which ever car you need to use.
You need to protect your newborn as much as possible so you can transport your baby completely safe and secure. The seat for your newborn baby is probably one of the easiest to use. It is usually easy to install and secure in the car and can be carried around by the handle. The most common and most safe is a back-facing seat as this can save your baby's life during collision if installed properly. Never use a back-facing seat on the front seat of the car if you have an airbag, as this can cause great injury to your child. The infant seat can be used for children up to approximately one year but it is important to notice the specific weight limit of the seat.
Choosing the correct car seat can often be very confusing as not only have you to ensure the correct size car seat for your child but that the car seat that you choose is also a correct fit for your car. Selecting a car seat that scores highly in the many test reports available is all very well but selecting a car seat that fits your car properly is probably the more important feature for your childs safety.
The infant only car seat is used for infants up to 35 pounds, depending the model. They are small, light weight and come with carrying handles. These are the one's that you see in the shopping carts. They sometimes come as a part of a stroller system. They may come with a base that is left in the car. The seat clicks into the base. You won't have to install the seat each time you use it. You may purchase more than one base for additional cars.
Once your baby has been born you will need a car seat, as most hospitals will not allow the child to leave without one. Most states by law say a baby must be in a car seat up to three years old. A baby that has been born early may require a car bed because the car seat might not fit secure enough. Some babies may need a special seat due to needs that will need to be met. One type of car seat is fitted for infants that will be facing the rear of the vehicle. These seats will be for infants between twenty-two and thirty pounds or more. You will, also, need to know the height limit of these types. If your child either reaches the weight or height requirements then he or she is ready for the next phase.
In the US, car crashes are the leading cause of death for children ages 3 to 14. While car accidents are usually unavoidable, what many parents may not know is that child injury during vehicle accidents can be significantly decreased or deterred by the proper use of car safety seats. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 80% of all child car safety seats and restraints are used incorrectly; car seat manufacturer Clek puts this figure as high as 92%.
