Car Seat Selection

Because you use your car seat everyday, make sure you find a child restraint that fits your lifestyle.

Convenience Factors recommended by the National Child Passenger Safety Certification Program (NHTSA):

  • Number and position of harness strap slots: Is there "room to grow?"
  • Automatic or one-step harness adjustment mechanisms: Is it easy to tighten and loosen the harness straps?
  • If you are pregnant or have an infant, you have two options. The first is an infant-only child restraint, and the second is a rear-facing convertible or 3-in-1 child restraint:
  • It may be more economical for a family to purchase a convertible child restraint, which can be converted from rear-facing to forward-facing.
  • Detachable base options on infant-only seats may be more convenient for families. Extra bases can be purchased for every person transporting the infant.
