Car Seats That Will Grow With Your Child

One of the first things you need to by when you are expecting a child is a car seat. Most hospitals won’t allow you to leave with your new baby unless you have a car seat installed in your car. It is the safest way to transport your baby in a vehicle and if you haven’t already started looking for one, then now is the time.

Luckily, there are 100s of models to choose from and you can even purchase ones that adjust and grow with your child. This will help you save money in the future so you don’t have to keep buying a new car seat every few months as your child grows. Another handy function of car seats are that you can buy a model that snaps into a base in your car and also snaps into your stroller. This means you don’t have to wake up your baby every time you go in and out of your car. They can stay safe, happy and asleep in the car seat as you transfer them around.

Installing The Car Seat Base in Your Car

Some older models of car seats require you to use the seat belt to secure the base in. However the newer models have a strap built in that attaches to small anchors in the seats of your car. All newer model cars have these anchors built in to the seats so it makes installing the car seat base incredibly easy. You can also purchase an additional base to install in a second family vehicle so that you don’t have to purchase two different car seats – you can snap the same one into each car seat base.

Car Seat Recycling

If you have multiple children you might realize that you are starting to accumulate quite the collection of car seats. When your children grow up and are big enough to sit in a regular seat, you might be wondering what to do with all your car seats. Although you can find affordable options, car seats still are a great expense for some families so if you have extra or unused car seats, it is a great idea to donate them to a local shelter, charity or family in need.
