Traveling with your little one is safe and convenient with a reliable car seat. For first-time parents, finding the right model can be a challenge with a variety of features and stages available. You have enough to worry about, buybuy Baby is here to de-stress your already hectic schedule with a multitude of car seats ready to roll.
There are three main stages your little one will grow through before transitioning into a standard seatbelt. Rear-facing baby car seats, suitable from birth to age two, is placed in the center rear seat with your baby facing the back of the car. Forward-facing toddler car seats, ages two to four and no more than 40 lb., is similar to rear-facing except positioned facing the front of the car. Belt-positioning boosters in high back and backless, ages 4 to 8 or up to 49, elevates your child on a higher seat while using the standard car seat belt. This slow, but secure move helps your baby gradually grow into a seatbelt safety. For meeting all these stages, try a car seat that transitions from one step to another. A car seat that grows with your little one helps to make the switch smooth and cost effective. If you are in need of an on-the-go option, try a convertible car seat that transforms into a stroller to make the switch from car to ground smooth.
Blending Safety with Style
Before selecting a model best suited for your needs, make sure to acknowledge the safety features and measurements to find the right fit for your family. For the car seat to properly install, measure the back seat of the car you will be using to determine how much room is available. If you are choosing one stage models, check the weight capacity to prevent incorrect usage. The Pinch Test is helpful in determining if you have properly secured your baby into the car seat. Pinch the webbing strap at the childs collarbone; if you can grab the material, it is too loose and needs to be adjusted. The correct tightness would be if you are unable to grasp the material and your fingers slide off. For all walks of life, buybuy Baby is here to help transition your baby through every step of their journey safely.
