What is a rotating car seat?


A rotating car seat (also called a swivel or turn car seat) is designed to turn 180 or 360 degrees. With rotating car seats, parents can turn the seat towards the car door and face their children directly, making it much easier to get them securely into the seat. These models help reduce the strain and awkward positions parents and children experience during the process.
