Babies"R"Us Baby Car Seat Guide - Keeping Baby Travel SafeHow to Shop for Car Seats Talk about precious cargo! When you hit the road with baby on board, nothing is more important than having a safe car seat to meet your high standards. It's our priority too - every seat in Babies"R"Us meets or exceeds all federal safety regulations.
infant 4 to 35lbs.* Rear-facing only
Designed to support an infant's back, head and neck. With a stay-in-car base, this car seat does double duty as a carrier, allowing baby to nap during trips in and out of the car. Infant car seats also attach easily to compatible strollers to create a car seat/stroller combo.
convertible 5 to 65lbs.* Converts from rear- to forward-facing
Looking for long-term value? This car seat grows with your child from newborn through toddler years. When switching to forward-facing, keep in mind, children must remain rear-facing until they are at least one year of age and at least 20 lbs.
booster 30 to 100+ lbs.* Forward-facing only
Used for older children, a booster car seat secures your child with an integrated harness or the car's seat belt. Available in high-back or backless styles.
Note: It is recommended that children stay rear-facing as long as possible. *Weights and heights vary by model. Please refer to individual car seat instruction manual for manufacturer recommendation.
What to Look For? Look for features that ensure easy installation, as well as those that offer baby a comfortable, safe ride.
infant head and body support cushions provide superior comfort and aid in proper positioning.
5-point harness offers a snug fit and safe restraint system with 5 points of contact: at the shoulders, hips and between the legs.
no rethread harness for easy height adjustment.
level indicators on infant car seats assure parents that seat is properly installed.
upfront harness adjust allows for easy, frontal adjustment of the harness system (no need to reach behind your baby).
side impact protection shields baby's body and head, and reduces the force of an impact. Energy absorbing foam is frequently used to "build in" the protection.
attached weather protection boot keeps baby warm and allows for optimum safety by eliminating the need for bulky clothes that interfere with securing the harness system close to baby's body.
height-adjustable base ensures a good fit for the car seat in your vehicle.
If the seat fits... Check the car seat's guide and vehicle's owner manual for proper installation. The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) allows car seats to be installed in cars without using the vehicle's seat belt system, making car seat installation easier and more convenient. LATCH-equipped car seats have connectors that fasten directly to special anchors in LATCH-equipped vehicles, without the use of seat belts.
Car Seat Forget-Me-Nots (Accessories)
Beyond the basics, these are just a few must-have accessories that provide a smoother ride for both of you.
Get an extra stay-in-car base for dad or a caregiver. They won't have to reinstall it with every trip they take.
neater is sweeter
Keep tiny footprints, food spills and spit-ups at bay with really handy car seat mats.
Placed on the back seat of your vehicle, it allows frequent peeks at your rear-facing baby, and peace of mind while you're on the road.
Here a toy, there a toy... keep baby entertained and his senses sharpened with many colorful options.
