How to Choose the Right Car Seat for Your Child
While all car seats work to keep your child safe and sound, not all are treated equally. In fact, knowing which car seat to get your child is key to ensuring they are safe in the event of an accident.
To begin with, infants needs the support and protection of an infant car seat, a convertible car seat, or a 3-in-1 car seat. While an infant car seat is smaller, it is often grown out of by age two.
A convertible car seat and 3-in-1 car seat will last much longer, transforming as your child grows. A 3-in-1 car seat can even turn into a booster seat when the time is right.
The type of car seat your child will need depends solely on their age and height. Some rely on a five-point harness, while others can be fastened using a car seat belt. Regardless of the type of car seat chosen, children should always remain rear-facing until age three.
