Infant Car Seat. The best and safest type of car seat for newborns is an infant car seat that is rear-facing. They are convenient with an easy to use carrier that is detachable and mounts onto a base that stays in the car. When it is time to get out of the car. you just click and take the seat with baby in it. You can also buy additional bases if necessary.
Harnesses. With harnesses you have the three point harness which has two shoulder straps that come together at a buckle in the shell or a crotch strap. Your other choice is the five-point harness systems which has two straps over the shoulders. two for the thighs and a crotch strap. The five point harness system is more secure than a three-point system because the extra straps spread the forces of a crash more evenly across your child`s body. The additional thigh and crotch straps help prevent the child from sliding out of the harness when a crash occurs.

To fit an ISOFIX seat into some cars you may either to use a top tether kit or an ISOFIX car seat that has a drop down leg to stabilise the car seat to the car floor. Please ensure your car is suitable for whichever seat you choose by consulting the relevant manufacturers web site.
