Best Infant Car Seat

+ A Infant Car Seat, sometimes called a infant safety seat, child restraint system, child seat, baby seat, car seat, or a booster seat, is a seat designed specifically to protect children from injury or death during vehicle collisions.

+ Most commonly these seats are purchased and installed by car owners, but car manufacturers may integrate them directly into their vehicle’s design and generally are required to provide anchors and ensure seat belt compatibility.

+ Many jurisdictions require children defined by age, weight, and/or height to use a government-approved child safety seat when riding in a vehicle. Child safety seats provide passive restraints and must be properly used to be effective.

+ However, research indicates that many child safety restraints are often not installed or used properly. To tackle this negative trend, health officials and child safety experts produce child safety videos to teach proper car seat installation to parents and caregivers.

A streamlined, low-profile base with finished bottom prevents damage to vehicle seats. Level indicators on both sides of the base and multiple foot positions allow for easy leveling

Side Impact Protection

MESA’s headrest is reinforced with EPP foam providing added protection for your child. The integrated design keeps an infant’s head stationary during a side impact collision.

MESA’s unique no-rethread, five-point harness adjusts with the headrest, eliminating the need to take the harness system apart as baby grows and providing reassurance the harness is installed correctly each time.

Through its innovative use of Merino wool, the HENRY and JORDAN MESA fashions are the first car seats to pass federal safety standards without the use of fire retardant chemicals. The wicking properties of Merino wool keep babies cool on hot days and warm on cool days.
