I am often asked the question ”How do I choose the right car seat for my child?”  With so many seats to choose from the short answer is “the one that fits your vehicle, your lifestyle and your budget”. The long answer however, is that buying a child seat is a significant purchase for parents and we all want to get it right.

Children typically outgrow infant car seats between 4 and 7 months of age, so borrowing a seat from a trusted friend or family member is an option at this stage in a child’s life, as long as you confirm that the seat has not been recalled, has never been in a crash or has not expired.
