How do I choose the best car seat for my child?

I'm pregnant, and I need a car seat for my soon-to-be child. How do I choose the best car seat? What should I know?

If you were to put together a list of all the most important things you’ll ever buy your child, a car seat is probably at the top of the list. As such, you want to make sure you’re getting one that provides top-notch protection, peace of mind, and comfort for your child.
To find the best car seat for your child, consider these aspects:
  • Make sure to buy an infant car seat—not a convertible or booster seat, which is meant for older children
  • Make sure the seat is LATCH compliant, which it should be if it’s a new model
  • Look for holders or other points of convenience
  • See how easy the seat is to carry and how quick you can remove it
Another thing you can do to make sure your child stays safe, other than driving safely, is to get the appropriate amount of insurance coverage to protect your new, little family. With the Jerry app, you can compare quotes from dozens of car insurance companies to get the best value and protect your little ones in a worst-case scenario.
