Most child seats are currently designed to be fitted by using a car`s adult lap and diagonal seat belt (or sometimes. just a lap belt). However car seats. seat belts and their anchorages vary dramatically between different models of cars. Car seats have different shapes. some seat belts are much shorter than others. the position of the anchor points differs so some are further forward or have shorter stalks than others. All these factors make it virtually impossible to make a child car seat that fits all cars and sometimes tricky to fit a child car seat correctly.
A quality booster seat will put the shoulder section of the seat belt over the strong bony part of your child`s collar-bone and chest and allow the lower strap of the belt to go across his or her hips and thighs. and not across the stomach or abdomen. When properly fitted. your child`s back should rest comfortably against the back of the vehicle seat (or the back of the booster seat. if using one). Your child`s knees should bend comfortably at the seat`s edge. The safety belt should also stay put when your child moves about on the seat.
It is recommended by experts that an infant car seat or premature baby car bed is only fitted in the rear of the car. Infant carriers must be used in a rear-facing position until your child either exceeds the manufacturers weight limit of the seat or reaches 2 years of age. Travelling in the rear of the car and also rearward facing reduces your child`s risk of serious injury in the event of a car crash by over 50% so this is advice that should be followed to ensure the maximum safety of your child.
Convertible Car Seats. Another type of seat that is suitable as an infant`s first car seat is the convertible car seat. This kind of seat can be used rear-facing from 5lbs to around 30lbs in most cases. and can then be converted into a front facing seat when your child has grown to the manufacturers limit. which is typically around 30lbs in weight or at approximately 2 years of age. Some of the best convertible child seats include the Britax Marathon 70 and the Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite.
