Finding the best car seats for your child:
To escape injury in an accident, you will need to pick a seat suitable for the child's age and weight. They come in three main categories: infant, infant & toddler convertible and booster seats. Statistics show that most seats are installed incorrectly. Once you have purchased a seat make sure to follow the directions for proper installation.

Infant Car Seats:
A child under a year old needs to be secured in a rear facing seat. The disadvantage to buying an infant seat is that you will have to buy a convertible seat after your child reaches 20 pounds. An infant seat will cost between $60 and $150. If you are willing to spend more, there are plenty of extra options to choose from. Better quality material and cushioning, infant head inserts and boots, more recline positions and easier installation.

Infant & Toddler Convertible Car Seats:
These are larger than infant seats and will last through your child's toddler years. They are designed to be used until your child reaches 40 pounds. On disadvantage is that these seats are difficult to remove from the automobile. These seats are for newborn through about age 4. Your basic seat costs around $80. For more options such as leather or better quality fabric, belt adjustment and/or a cup holder, they run as high as $300. Click here for Toddler Car Seats

Booster Seats:
Booster seats are for children 3 years and up and who weigh at least 40 pounds. They are used with a lap and shoulder belt. Cost is between $60 to around $200.
