Baby Car Seats (0 - 15 months)
The very first journey you will make with your beautiful newborn is from the hospital to your home. During these precious moments of awe and dread, you will need a baby car seat you can trust.
Baby car seats or Group 0/0+ car seats are specifically designed for newborns to 15 months. Baby car seats offer extra support for your little one’s head, neck and spinal cord, all of which are still developing. These infant car seats face toward the back of the car (rearward facing) which is a must for early childhood safety.
The best baby car seat for you stroller
A baby car seat can be easily removed from the car and carried, some can be used as a standalone infant carrier outside of the car and others can clip onto your stroller. This can be especially helpful during the first few months, when you'll do just about anything not to disrupt a baby who comfortably resting in their car seat!
Every newborn car seat on the market right now meets government safety regulations. So you needn’t worry that spending less means your baby car seat will be less safe. However, more expensive car seats will offer more features like bigger canopies, easier installation and potentially some additional safety features.
Choosing the right baby car seat
The most important features to look out for when buying an infant car seat is first and most obviously, that it’s compatible with your car. Ease of installation is equally important; many car seats can be installed using the regular seat belt or the LATCH or ISOFIX car seat system which is easier to secure the car seat using built-in anchors. Most baby car seats today come with built-in levelling systems and indicators to signal they’ve been correctly installed correctly which is very important.
Once you’ve settled on the functionality and ease of use, you can look into the style of your infant car seat and there are plenty of stylish options to choose from. Look for a style of fabric that suits your taste and consider its durability and that it’s machine washable. Some car seats for babies even include additional shock absorption, padding and higher quality materials.
It’s also useful to check compatibility with your stroller. You can snap infant car seats onto many strollers or stroller frames. Stroller and baby car seat sets are called a travel system. But if there’s a car seat you absolutely love that differs from your stroller, check if a separate adapter is available to connect the items together.
