As you know, all children under the age of 4 ride in child safety seats and all children ride in child restraint systems until their 8th birthday. Do you know how to choose the correct one for your little loved ones?
Infant Car Seats
For infants that weigh approximately 22 pounds or less, are 25 inches or less in length. Always place the seat in the back seat of the vehicle and make sure the child safety seat faces rear of the vehicle. Never put an infant in the front seat of a vehicle that has a passenger-side air bag.
Convertible Car Seats
For infants or toddlers that weigh approximately 40 pounds or less. For infants, face these seats toward the rear of the vehicle.
For toddlers, you can change a convertible seat to face the front of the vehicle.
Booster Car Seats
Children who are 4 to eight 8 old, weigh 40 to 80 pounds, and are less than 4 feet, 9 inches in height
