Car Seat 411
The type of seat your child needs depends on your child’s age, weight, height, and type of vehicle you own.
Types of Rear-Facing Car Seats: Infant-only Seats
Infant only car seats are small and portable. They usually come with a base that the seat clicks in and out of. Additional bases can be purchased to use in other vehicles.
Types of Rear-Facing Car Seats: Convertible Seats
Convertible car seats can be used as both rear-facing and forward-facing. Use forward-facing for children who have exceeded the rear-facing height and weight limits and who are over 1 year old and weigh at least 20 pounds.
Car Seat Safety Tips
Always use a car seat when transporting a child in the car. Never place the car seat in the front seat of a vehicle that has a front passenger air bag since this could cause serious injury and/or death.
