How to Choose the Best Type of Car Seat

Whether you are expecting your first baby or shopping for your growing child, every Chicco car seat is engineered for comfort, safety, and peace of mind. With innovative installation features and user-friendly touchpoints, Chicco car seats are reassuringly easy to install and secure for your little one. The information below will help you select the best fit for your family based on your child’s age, height, and weight.

Infant Car Seats

An infant car seat cradles your new little one throughout all their earliest outings. Infant car seats are rear-facing only and consist of two parts - a removable carrier and a stay-in-car base. Designed for easy portability, the car seat can go to and from the car, clicking directly into a stroller, without unbuckling or disturbing your baby. Infant car seats also click directly into strollers! Learn more about choosing an infant car seat!

Convertible Car Seats

As your baby grows into a toddler, a convertible car seat helps you transition from rear-facing to forward-facing for use with children up to 65 pounds. Convertible car seats stay in the car as they do not click into a base or stroller. Learn more about choosing a convertible car seat!

Rotational Convertible Car Seats

Offering all the features of a convertible car seat, a rotational convertible car seat has the added convenience of 360-degree rotation, which provides an optimal experience for comfortably securing your child in the seat and just as comfortably removing them. A rotating convertible car seat can be used rear-facing for infants and toddlers and simply rotates to forward-facing when height or weight requirements are met.

All-in-One Car Seats

All-in-one car seats are perfect for buying one car seat that will transition throughout all stages of your child’s car seat journey. Providing all the benefits of a convertible car seat, an all-in-one offers extended use through booster mode. All-in-one car seats stay in the car as they do not click into a base or stroller. Learn more about choosing an all-in-one car seat.

Harness + Booster Car Seats

Harness + booster seats are forward-facing only car seats that convert to a seat belt-positioning booster seat. This type of car seat allows you to maintain your child’s five-point harness protection for as long as possible until you decide to transition to the belt-positioning mode. Harness + Booster Car Seats are a great option for big siblings if you need to free up your convertible car seat for younger siblings! Learn more about choosing a harness and booster car seat!

Belt-Positioning Boosters

Belt-positioning boosters help position big kids in the optimal spot for using a regular vehicle seat belt. They primarily help to position a child higher up in their seat, without additional padding or support. You can choose between the high-back booster for more head and shoulder protection or remove the backrest for a more portable, lightweight option. Learn more about choosing a belt-positioning booster!
