There are two types of baby car seats and before you buy one, make sure that you choose the one you really need for your baby. These two types are the infant cars seats and the convertible car seats. The difference between the two is of course, the other one is convertible. It means that from an infant car seat feature, which is rear-facing, the convertible car seat can be transformed to forward facing seat.
So if I am to choose, of course I would definitely go for the convertible type since you can both use rear-facing and forward-facing features. As a practical mom, we need to consider everything we buy. As much as possible, we have to know the features of all the baby equipment we need especially the car seat. Buying a single car seat that will provide you with multiple functions is better than buying a separate product for a particular function.
Most convertible car seats are expensive than an ordinary infant car seats, but going for the convertible type can still guarantee you with more savings because you won’t be needing to buy another infant car seat when your baby outgrows the rear-facing feature. Also, if you are a good bargain hunter, searching for cheap car seats must be easy for you.
Buying either a normal car seat or a convertible one must still have to be done with utmost consideration, especially with the safety features. Safety features are more important than any other feature. Whatever type of carseat you buy, make sure that it has a five-point safety harness. It must have a strap for each shoulder, strap securing each thigh, and comfortable strap between the legs of your baby. Make sure that these straps are adjustable and the safety buckles must be secure. Baby car seats protect lives of infants and you must always use it on your baby whenever you and your baby are in a car.
