One options are to buy a rear-facing infant carseat (made for babies around 20lbs), which will fit your baby snugly during the first few months and often comes with a handle for easy carrying. And, if you are seeking the utmost in convenience, select a travel system. Infant travel systems will include a ready made child car seat and stroller combination.
The downside to the infant car seat is usually that you’ll spend $60 to $150 on the seat and your child will outgrow it in 6 months to a year. You need to upgrade to a convertible car seat once your baby reaches 20 lbs.
If this is a concern for you, it is possible to buy a convertible car seat which will face the rear for your newborn that will turn around to face the front for your baby once he or she reaches 20 lbs.No matter what you decide to use for the infant, you’ll eventually need a convertible child car seat.
Regardless of the choice you make whether to use a convertible car seat from day one or use an infant car seat until your baby weighs 20 lbs, you will need to buy a convertible car seat at some point. Convertible car seats are larger than infant-only car seats and are designed to grow with your child through the toddler years. Most convertible child car seats fit babies up to 40 lbs (usually around age 4) and a few convert to a booster car seat and are safe for children up to 80 lbs.
Convertible car seats range in price from $80 to $300.For toddlers weighing more than 40 lbs and big kids, you may need a booster child car seat.Booster child car seats are designed for children age 3 or older who weigh at least 40 lbs.
They are designed to use your car’s lap and shoulder seat belts. They literally boost your child into a position that makes it safe to use the car’s seat belt system.Some booster seats provide back support and also you should choose one of these options if the vehicle seat is low or has no head restraint.
A backless option is fine for vehicle seats that offer plenty of support behind the head.Booster child car seats range in price from $60 to $200.
