What is an infant car seat?
How to Choose an Infant Car Seat
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, this removable car seat can easily click into a stroller without disturbing your baby. Car seats for infants can support babies up to 35 lbs. or 35 inches, with some models designed for lower height and weight limits. While the definition of an infant car seat is straightforward, there are many different factors for parents to keep in mind when picking the best car seat for your baby. Chicco offers several varieties of infant car seats that you can choose from!
When should you switch from an infant car seat?
All infant car seats come with a specific height and weight limit for use. Once your baby reaches either of those milestones – typically, within 1-2 years for infant or newborn car seats – it may be time to consider purchasing a convertible car seat or 4-in-1 car seat.
