Tips for Securing Your Bundle of Joy

Car Seat & Booster Seat Choices for Optimal Protection

When you purchase a car seat for your little bundle of joy, you are expecting that car seat to protect your child from harm. In order to feel confident in your child’s security, you must purchase a car seat that has earned a high safety rating. Often, new parents find themselves in panic mode trying to choose the seat that will protect their child. To ease your worries and boost your confidence, we have gathered all the must-know information about the highest ranked car seats and ones that have been rated as not recommended:

• Not Recommended: The Highback Diono Olympia, Diono Pacifica, and the Kids Embrace Batman No Back Booster have all landed in the not recommended category this year. Issues range from shoulder belt fitting errors to faulty armrest distance. Other seats that should be continuously avoided are the carry-over models from Dorel Juvenile, the Safety 1st All-in-One and Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite. These models have been on the not recommended list since 2009 due to improper belt fitting.

• Improved Design – Now Recommended: Three redesigned booster seats and car seats have made the recommended list this year. Last year, these three models experienced less than satisfying results. These models include the Frontier 90, Pinnacle 90, and Pioneer 70.

• Best Choices: The following LATCH-compatible boosters are highly recommended: Britax Frontier 90, Pinnacle 90 and Pioneer 70, Cybex Solution X-Fix, Evenflo Chase and Symphony 65, Kids Embrace Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Diono Solana, Graco 4Ever All-in-1 and Milestone All-in-1, Maxi-Cosi RodiFix, and Peg Perego Viaggio HBB 120
