Infant Car Seats

A little research can go a long way towards finding the best and cheapest car insurance

When looking at infant car seats there are a number of practical considerations that experienced parents look for. While the manufacturers of baby car seats are required to meet certain safety standards, there are some design features that can make life easier for those who use the car seats.

Here is what one parent replied, when asked what she looks for when considering buying a baby car seat:

"The first thing that I search for when purchasing a baby car seat is that it has a base that stays in the vehicle and a separate seat/carrier that is removable. This allows the baby to stay in the seat, yet be removed from the vehicle. This is really handy because then the seat can click into a shopping cart."

"The second important thing is to make sure that there is a U shaped cushion to go around the baby's head which keeps the head stable and upright. My little boy used to always fall asleep in the car so this was really important."

"Weight of the infant car seat is also an important consideration. The combined weight of the baby and the car seat can get pretty heavy by the time the baby has almost outgrown it."

"Price is also an important consideration. I always try and buy car seats when they are on sale. Name brands such as Eddie Bauer and Graco are also nice items to look for because you can rely on their years of experience."

"Another nice feature is to have a zip up bag attached to the seat for the winter. You can put blankets inside it to keep the baby warm and you don't have to worry about them blowing away in the winter wind."

"Since cars seats have a strap that clicks in front of the baby's chest, you want to ensure that it is easy to get on and off. You don't want to be fiddling with it, making someone wait for you to get baby out."
