As We Grow

image015

As parents we can’t wait for our kids to reach their milestones, but it’s bittersweet. Your baby is growing up… and will soon be out of his infant car seat.

“Do I have to forward face?” Rear facing is the safest position for your baby to be in, so there’s no rush to forward face. Infant/child car seats are designed to allow your baby to rear face longer, even though they have outgrown their infant car seat.

Babies grow like weeds (quicker than we’d like), so you need a car seat that can keep up.

An infant/child car seat (Stage 1 and 2) can be converted to either rear or forward facing. They’re designed to be used from the infant stage to the toddler years. Don’t feel like you have to rush to forward facing. It’s best to keep him in a rear-facing seat for as long as he meets the height and weight requirements.

“I’m looking for a car seat with more flexibility.” An infant/child/booster seat (Stage 1, 2 and 3) is an all-in-one car seat that will take you through all stages of use… from rear facing to forward facing and belt-positioning booster. For the safest ride, keep your child in the earliest stage until he has outgrown it.

Once your child has outgrown his infant car seat and surpassed the maximum rear-facing weight requirements (depending on the model), you can graduate to a Child/Booster Seat (Stage 2 and 3). Starts out as a forward-facing seat, then converts to a booster. There’s no hurry to move your child to a booster. It’s safer to use a 5-point harness for as long as possible.

Booster seats (Stage 3) can be used for children at least 40 lbs. You can use you car’s seatbelt to secure your child. They are designed to raise his body up to ensure proper positioning of the vehicle’s shoulder and lap seatbelts.

Suffering from stage confusion?

Our videos break down the types of car seats and even provide helpful tips on buckling them in to their seats.

Keeping your munchkin safe through all his milestones… we have just the car seat for that.
