Car seats are essential accessories for your little one. They provide safety and comfort during the first few years of their life. You want to make sure that they will have the safest possible ride when they grow up. If you’re thinking about buying a new car seat, then it is very important to choose one which fits your needs and budget. There are many different types of car seats available today. Some offer good protection while others do not.

Types of Car Seats and Their Uses

Booster Seats

These are the most protective types of car seats but they also come with a higher price tag. These seats have a high back, hence the name. If your child is over 40 pounds, then this is definitely the type that you should get for them.

They can also be used as a backless booster car seat if your child is less than 40 pounds. If your child is under 4’9″ tall, then you can use this as a high back booster car seat. The weight limits given are for children that are over 4’9″ tall.

The more expensive models of these types of car seats come with technology which makes them easier to install.
