Car Seats

Forward-facing seats are designed to be used in the forward-facing position only. These seats are certified for use for children weighing 20 pounds or more; the child also must be at least one year old.

The harness straps should be at or above your child's shoulders. Forward-facing seats have several slots into which shoulder straps can be inserted, so choose the slots above and as close as possible to your child's shoulders. The chest clip should be positioned across the chest at armpit level to keep the harness straps in place.

Combination seats are seats that can be used first as forward-facing car seats (for children who weigh at least 20 pounds and are at least one year old) and later, as booster seats.
