There are hundreds of different baby car seats on the market at the moment so it can be very difficult as to which type to buy. You cannot go wrong in choosing the Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite Convertible Car Seat. As the name suggests it is convertible and can be changed to suit your needs while your child is growing.
For newborn infants, you would use the seat in a rear facing position. It can be used in this way safely until the baby reaches 35lbs in weight if you choose. It comes complete with a comfortable infant headrest which can be removed later when you change the position of the car seat as the child grows. It fastens with a secure 5 point buckle fastener strap and there are three different locations for the buckle which is extremely convenient.
Once the child reaches 22lbs in weight you can choose to convert the seat into the forward facing position. This is very simple to do and comes with a step by step instruction manual. It would probably be at this point that you would choose to remove the infant headrest. You should get a lot of use out of the baby seat while it is in this position and can allow your baby to travel like this until they have reached 40lbs.
The baby seat looks like a mini arm chair and is very comfortable for a baby to sit in. They will have no problem taking naps on long journeys! The seat also comes with a 3 position recline mechanism which again is ideal for sleepy babies. For slightly older children, there is space on the seat to hold a cup which is very handy. The pivoting armrests are an unusual but welcome feature.
Once your child grows a little and reaches 40lbs, the manufacturer recommends that you convert the Safety 1st Alpha Omega Elite Convertible Car Seat into step 3, which is the belt positioning booster seat. Your child can safely use this seat until they reach 100lbs in weight.
The beauty of this car seat is the money that you will save. You only have to buy one car seat instead of three. It has been designed with safety in mind first and foremost yet it is exceptionally comfortable and is made with soft high-quality materials. The covers are easily removable and you can put them in your ordinary washing machine at home so there are no expensive dry cleaning bills to worry about. Baby seats do get dirty and smelly so being able to remove and wash them so easily is a bonus.
