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.

  • Consists of a carrier with adjustable handle and stay-in-car base
  • Securely installs in/out of stay-in-car base and strollers

Convertible Car Seats

Rear-Facing + Forward-Facing

As your baby grows into a toddler, a convertible car seat helps you get ready to make the switch from rear-facing car seat to forward-facing car seat for use with children up to 65 pounds. This child car seat is used in rear-facing mode for infants and toddlers and converts to forward-facing when height or weight requirements are met as your child grows. Convertible car seats stay in the car as they do not click into a base or stroller. Chicco convertible car seats are designed to be easy to install and secure, with features like the ReclineSure leveling system and RideRight bubble levels that guide you to a perfect fit for your child.

  • DuoGuard® head and torso protection
  • Easy-extend headrest system

Harness + Booster Car Seats

Forward-Facing + Booster

As your toddler grows into a big kid, a Harness + Booster car seat provides extended five-point harness security with built-in transition to a belt-positioning booster. Use the integrated 5-point harness until your child meets the height and weight requirements —and is at least 4 years old—to buckle up using the vehicle seat belt. Chicco harness booster car seat features like 4-position recline, integrated bubble levels and LATCH install make installation simple while the adjustable headrest system provides comfort and security for your growing child.

  • DuoGuard® head and torso protection
  • ErgoBoost® contoured seat with double-foam padding

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
  • Two space-saving CupFolders

Car Seat FAQs


We suggest having a new car seat on hand at least one month before your child is due. The reason for purchasing a car seat early is to give you time to understand how each feature works and how to install the seat correctly.

Once your child reaches either the height or weight requirement for an infant car seat, transitioning to the use of a convertible car seat can keep them rear-facing longer.

Even if your child is within the height and weight guidelines for using the vehicle seat belt, they may not be personally ready. Each child is different, so make sure your child is able to sit still and safely in a seat belt without a full harness car seat.

Each car seat and base includes an expiration date assigned by the manufacturer. This is done for safety reasons, so make sure to check for the expiration date before using a car seat or base for your child.

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.

You should choose a car seat that is appropriate for your child’s height, weight and age. Make sure the car seat is installed correctly in your vehicle and the child is properly secured into the car seat.

Your baby should remain in a rear-facing car seat until they reach the height or weight limit allowed by that car seat’s manufacturer. When that limit is met, you can then switch your baby to a forward-facing car seat with a five-point harness and tether. Be sure to check your state’s law regarding rear-facing requirements as well.

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.

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.
