Where can I find state-approved car seats?
Buying Car SeatsMany stores sell baby car seats, from big box retailers to small baby boutiques. You must be sure the child car seats meet all child restraint laws.
The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a guide to car seat laws on its website. The suggestions are more conservative than any state’s safety laws. Here, you can look up which kind of car seat to buy that will be right for your child’s current age and weight. For example, infants weighing fewer than 20 pounds always need a rear-facing baby car seat.
Additionally, the NHTSA has put a rating on nearly every child safety seat on the market, so you can look up the one you’re thinking of purchasing to see how well it performed.
Once you’ve found a safe car seat for your child, you can then pick out things like which color to buy.
