Purchasing the right car seat involves striking a balance between your kid, your car and your lifestyle.
A convertible car seat is one that can go from birth until the child is ready for a booster seat, since they’re designed to take children from rear-facing to forward-facing, that flexibility works with a five-point harness, attaching to the seat via car’s seat belt or lower anchors.
Main Types of Convertible Car Seats:
Designed to accommodate your little one from infancy until they outgrow a 5-point harness
Designed to be the only car seat your child will ever need – from rear-facing in infancy to forward-facing as a toddler, all the way through a belt-positioning booster.
