An infant car seat is rear-facing only and consists of two parts—a removable, bucket-style seat and a base that remains securely installed in your car. Designed for easy portability, they can click into a stroller without disturbing your baby. For babies up to 35 lbs. or 35 inches.
All car seats come with a height and weight limit for use. Once your baby reaches either of those milestones—typically, within 1-2 years for infant seats—it’s time to move on to a convertible or 4-in-1 car seat.
Convertible refers to two modes of use—rear-facing for newborns and toddlers to forward-facing when height or weight requirements are met. Multiple recline and headrest settings in both modes keep your baby comfortable and secure. Time to graduate from the convertible when your child is 65 lbs. or 49 inches.
The 4-in-1 car seat or All-in-One is designed for extended use. Go from rear-facing to forward-facing to booster mode with ease. Adjustable features accommodate each of the four stages of car seat use children grow through—infant, toddler, preschooler and big kid. One car seat that does it all.
A harness + booster combination seat transitions from a toddler to big kid car seat. Use the integrated 5-point harness until your child is big enough—at least 4 years old—to buckle up using the vehicle seat belt. Belt-positioning guides ensure a proper fit in booster mode, every time.
There are two types of belt-positioning booster seats—high-back and backless. A high-back booster offers head and torso protection plus rigid seat belt guides while a backless booster is lightweight and portable. Both are designed to position your child so they can be properly secured by the vehicle safety belt.
