"Just recently took it on a road trip from ontario to nova Scotia and have to say it is a fantastic car seat. Our little one was extremely comfortable and it gave my wife and I peace of mind as it was well made and solid."
"We got this car seat for our newborn and even though she was small when she was born just under 6 lbs), this car seat kept her comfy, safe and secure."
Whether you're bringing your baby home for the first time or shuffling your toddler between play dates, you'll get peace of mind knowing your child is safe with the right car seat. Before buying a car seat, you'll need to learn about the different types available so you can find the perfect one for you and your baby.
Infant car seats are designed to fit babies aged 0 to 12 months who weigh up to 22 pounds. Featuring a rear-facing design, infant car seats absorb impact when a sudden stop or crash happens to protect your baby's weak neck and back muscles. They snap securely into a base installed in your car and usually include a handle for easy carrying. Infant car seats can also be taken in and out of the car smoothly so you can move your sleeping angel without waking them up.
Don't want to disturb your bundle of joy when transporting them from car seat to stroller? Opt for a travel system. Travel systems include an infant car seat, base, and coordinating stroller. The car seat fits into the stroller so you can take your child in and out of the vehicle seamlessly. The stroller component also grows with your child so you can continue to use it in their toddler years. If you already have a car seat and stroller from different brands, a car seat adapter may let you combine both so you can create a flawless transportation system.
A convertible car seat is ideal if you're on a budget and want to keep your child safely seated beyond the infant years. Suitable for kids up to 40 pounds, convertible car seats can initially function as a rear-facing infant seat and later be used as a forward-facing toddler seat. . This versatile 2-in-1 design saves you money by accommodating your growing child, however features a larger and heavier design than other types of car seats. Some convertible car seats also transform into a booster seat to secure children who weigh up to 100 pounds.
Transition your kid to a booster seat when they're over 40 pounds. A booster seat raises your child's body up so they can securely fasten their seat belt. Designed for little ones aged 4 and up, booster seats can keep your child safe until they're at least 8 years old.
A variety of car seat features help deliver a smooth travel experience for you and your baby. A 5-point safety harness keeps your child securely in place with 2 shoulder straps, 2 waist straps, and a strap between the legs. Look for straps that are easily adjustable if you want to get your child in and out of the car in a flash. Some models have one-hand belt adjustments with fast release buckles to save you time. For quick installation, find a car seat that’s compatible with the LATCH system. LATCH lets you attach your car seat directly to your vehicle without the need for seatbelts to secure it.
