Not sure which infant car seat is right for you? Read on to learn more about this all-important baby item.
How Long Does a Baby Stay in an Infant Car Seat?
Most infant car seats are used for newborns and young babies up to 2 years of age. Once your baby reaches the seat’s maximum height (around 32 inches) or weight limit (anywhere from 22 to 35 pounds), then they can make the transition to a different car seat.
Infant vs. Convertible Car Seats
While young babies can also ride in a convertible car seat, an infant car seat is specifically designed for newborns. Infant car seats are rear-facing only and attach to a base that's hooked or strapped into your car. They’re a great option because they are better able to surround and protect your baby and generally offer superior head support as your baby strengthens and develops.
Convertible car seats, on the other hand, grow with your child until they are about 65 pounds. As your baby grows into a toddler, a convertible seat helps you get ready to make the switch from rear-facing to forward-facing. They offer years of use while your child grows with a seamless transformation from rear-facing harnessed to forward-facing to high back or backless belt-positioning booster car seat.
