WHAT IS AN INFANT CAR SEAT?
An infant car seat is used for newborns who weigh 35-40 pounds and who are 32-35 inches tall. Infant car seats are rear facing.
Today, you can decide to purchase an infant car seat that’s only rear-facing or get a convertible car seat that has extended rear-facing capacity and can grow with your baby.
