what to look for?

When you're out and about with baby, nothing is more important than having a safe car seat to meet your high standards. It's our priority, too. That's why every car seat you'll find at Babies"R"Us meets or exceeds all federal safety regulations. Below, we've highlighted some of the key features you'll want to look for in your car seat. No matter which car seat you choose, be sure to find one that can be installed easily, is convenient to use, and provides a comfortable, safe ride for baby.

infant head and body support cushions

provide superior comfort and aid in proper positioning.

for easy height adjustment.

upfront harness adjust

allows for easy, frontal adjustment of the harness system (no need to reach behind your baby).

ensures a good fit for the car seat in your vehicle.
