The market is flooded with infant car seats and this can make it difficult to choose the right one for your baby. And we all know that choosing the right seat for your infant is essential for protection and safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), conducted a study that determined that over seventy percent of child restraint systems are not used correctly. And more shocking than that, some parents don’t use child restraints at all.
A very crucial time for the proper children’s restraint is when they are transitioning from a rear-facing seat to a front facing seat. Parents are not educated on what type of seat to use for the child. Further, they don’t know the appropriate age to make the transition. Did you know that the front facing seat that you choose heavily depends on, the age of the child, the car you drive, and the weight of your child?
A convertible car set is a very popular front facing seat that provides a smoother transition between rear and front facing when the child has attained the proper height and weight. The restraints are easily converted between rear and front facing at any time.
Choosing the right harness system on the seat is also a big factor to consider when making your selection. There are essentially two choices, a shield, and five-point harness. The shield is padded and fits over the head and locks in place on the shoulders. The five-point harness consists of straps that go over the hips, over the shoulders, and connect between the legs.
Once you have made your decision on which seat is best for you, you need to pay careful attention on how to assemble and use it correctly. Injuries and deaths occur all too often due to the improper assembly or use of the seat. To ensure your child’s safety, carefully read all the instructions.
