Infant Car Seats

Rear-Facing Only

Starting with that first trip home from the hospital, a rear-facing infant car seat cradles your new little one throughout all their earliest outings. An infant car seat is rear-facing only and consists of two parts – a removable carrier with adjustable handle and stay-in-car base. An additional, removable head and body support makes this an ideal car seat for newborns. 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. Chicco infant car seats are top-rated and built for everyday convenience, clicking directly into all Chicco travel system-ready strollers.

Booster Car Seats

High-Back Booster + Backless Booster

Once your big kid graduates from their five-point harness, give them the boost they need to use the vehicle seat belt safely and comfortably with a belt-positioning booster. To use a booster, children must be at least 4 years old, 40 pounds and 38 inches tall and can sit relatively still in the same seated position throughout the car ride. There are two types of belt-positioning booster seats – high-back and backless. A high-back booster offers head and torso protection plus belt guides to position the vehicle seat belt. A backless booster is a lightweight, portable option that positions your child so they can be properly secured by the vehicle seat belt. Chicco boosters feature an ErgoBoost® contoured seat with double foam padding and two dishwasher-safe cup holders.

  • DuoGuard® head and torso protection on high-back boosters
  • 10-position headrest on high-back boosters
  • ErgoBoost® contoured seat with double-foam padding

Car Seat FAQs


Car seat usage requirements are based on height, weight, and in some cases, minimum age. Whether you are choosing a car seat for a newborn or a big kid, it is always important to review and understand the usage requirements for that specific car seat.

There are two types of car seats that can be used for newborn through toddler (or even big kid) stage. A convertible car seat can be used in rear-facing mode for infants and toddlers and converts to forward-facing when height or weight requirements are met. An all-in-one car seat provides the same benefits as a convertible car seat with extended use through booster mode for bigger kids.

Every car seat and base has an expiration date assigned by the manufacturer for several reasons. This is to ensure that car seats do not stay in circulation over a long period of time. Over time technology improvements are added, standards are upgraded and ease-of-use features are introduced. In addition, the longer a car seat is in circulation, the higher the chance that it becomes compromised due to a crash incident, lost or broken parts and missing instructions.

A car seat and base must always be replaced if it has been involved in a vehicle crash. This is true even if there is no visible damage or defects to the car seat. A car seat with even minor damage may no longer be able to protect your infant or child in a future crash, so make sure to replace it with a new one whenever an accident occurs. We recommend contacting your vehicle insurance company regarding replacement of your car seat.

All Chicco car seats are tested to meet or exceed U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. This includes crash testing as well as making sure each component meets all federal requirements for car seats.

In most instances, the middle rear seat is the safest place for your car seat. However, there are multiple factors to consider, the most important being a seat location that allows you to install your car seat correctly and works best for your family. For additional recommendations, go to NHTSA.gov.

Car seats offer many features and options. Before making a purchase, decide which features are most important to your family. Most importantly, the car seat should be appropriate for your child’s height, weight and age. Other features to consider include easy-to-remove zip-off fabrics, UPF-rated canopies, no-rethread harnesses, air mesh or chemical-free fabrics.

LATCH installation and installation with the vehicle seat belt are both good options as long as you get a good, tight installation. Do not use both the vehicle seat belt and LATCH at the same time. For forward-facing, you should also use the top tether when possible. Consult your product manual to ensure that installation with LATCH is an option based on the child weight limit for LATCH use. You must also check your vehicle manual to confirm appropriate LATCH seating positions.
