Car Seats – Which do I NEED?

Have you ever found yourself wondering which car seat should I use for my newborn? Which for my toddler? Do I even need one for my 8 year old?

There’s a wonderful resource out there that has many dedicated people working on the most current and best practices: Car Seats For The Littles. They are staffed by Child Passenger Safety Technicians.

They have SO much information on Canadian, American and the EU.

Shopping for a rear facing only car seat and feeling overwhelmed? They’ve done a bunch of comparisons already to make sorting through information easier. And they’ve done this for convertible seats, combination seats, high back boosters and backless boosters!
