An infant car seat is vital for ensuring your baby's safety when you're in a vehicle.
As you shop for infant car seats, you'll notice that there are several types. Stage one car seats, often marketed simply as "infant car seats," have a bucket-like design and are made for infants that weigh less than about 22 pounds and are shorter than about 30 inches. These seats are installed rear-facing and attach to a base that's hooked or strapped into your car. Convertible car seats are larger and have no separate base. They can be installed rear-facing for infants and younger toddlers and then reversed to face forward. 3-in-1 car seats can transition from rear-facing infant car seats to forward-facing toddler car seats and finally to booster seats for older children.
A convertible car seat — whether 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 — is an attractive option because you won't need to buy a new seat as your child grows older. However, experts recommend starting off with a stage-one car seat, since it's better able to surround and protect your baby and generally offers superior head support. Another reason for choosing stage-one car seats is that they often come with Travel Systems, which allow them to be used as stroller seats.
