Installing a baby car seat is an excellent way to protect your child while traveling with them. It helps in decreasing the chance of severe injuries due to accidents.
Lots of options in car seats are available for your baby. People can use an infant-only, convertible, or all-in-one car seat. Regardless of which one you select, ensure it is fixed properly and that your kid fits in it well.
Infant-Only Car Seat
These seats are designed for babies weighing up to 22 to 40 pounds, depending on your model. They are easy to carry and affix to your car seat through a base that you install in your car. Most people buy a popular car seat from a popular brand named Nuna or UPPA baby in Greenwich, CT, to provide safety to their children during travel. Infant-Only Car Seats can be utilized only in the rear-facing position. These seats are a perfect option for your baby’s first year, sometimes as long as two years, depending on the variety and baby’s weight or size.
Convertible Car Seat
It is stationary and has to remain in your vehicle. It has a maximum weight limit of 40-60 pounds, depending on the type. Convertible car seats for your baby can be rear or forward-facing. This type of seat can be ideal for infants as well as for your two years old toddler. Ensure that your newborn baby isn’t too tiny for this type of car seat, and they fit in your vehicle securely. Generally, these seats are not portable and remain in the car.
All-In-One Car Seat
Another name for this type of seat is 3-in-1. It shifts from being a rear-facing seat to being forward-facing, then ultimately to a booster seat. It is also stationary. A 3-in-1 seat will take your kid from the time that they are in the infancy stage until they no longer need a booster. However, not all seats are appropriate for an infant, so always know their specifications and qualities before using them for a small infant.
All these baby car seats are safe and suitable options and easily available at an almost high-end baby store in Greenwich, CT, depending on your requirements and lifestyle.
Tip: If you buy an infant-only car seat for your baby’s first year and later want to replace it with a convertible or all-in-one seat, ensure it remains rear facing. The convertible and all-in-one seats are usually made to accommodate tots and under-fives children in the rear-facing position, depending on your particular type of seat weight limit.
