Types of Car Seats

The American Association of Pediatrics recommends following the guidelines outlined below for the different stages of a child’s growth.

Rear-Facing Car Seats

Infants and babies should be in rear-facing car seats as long as possible or until the child is within 1 inch of the top of the seat. In fact, the AAP recommends that all infants and toddlers should ride in a rear-facing car seat, as long as possible, until they reach the highest weight or height limit allowed by their car seat manufacturers.

Front-Facing Car Seats

Children must be at least 2 years old or have reached the maximum height or weight capacity of the car seat to warrant a ride in a front-facing seat. Refer to the instruction manual for more information or ask your QP which seat would be best for your child and situation!

Booster Seats

Big kids get the booster seats! Don't rush to move your child to a belt-positioning booster seat before they are officially big enough. Children are typically ready for a booster seat when they are between 40 and 65 pounds or have outgrown the weights and heights requirements for their previous car seat.


Clean, Safe & Insured Baby Equipment:

Quality Providers are required to complete extensive training on equipment safety before they begin renting travel systems. They are taught how to properly clean items to ensure every family is able to experience safe and spotless items. Unlike most baby gear rental companies, BabyQuip carries insurance covering your entire rental experience making us the safest choice for you and your little one. Whether you are renting front or rear-facing car safety seats, our providers have got you covered.

Things to Consider When Renting a Car Safety Seat

When traveling with babies, toddlers and/or children, attempt to rent a car seat or booster seat that is most similar to the one you already own. Keep the following things in mind to ensure you choose the safest and most appropriate seat for your little one.

Be aware of how much space you have - If you are reserving a rental car at your destination location make sure there is enough room in the back seat to install the car seat you plan to rent. A large base may not fit in the back seat of a small car.

You will need to install the car seat yourself - All Quality Providers are required to provide customers with a car seat manual that includes installation instructions but are not allowed (due to liability reasons) to install a safety seat for a customer. Basic instructions are also typically printed on the car seat itself as a reminder/guide. Please always refer to the user manual to make sure the seat you are renting is properly installed. Ensure that the vehicle seat belt fits properly also. You can find a Child Passenger Safety Technician (CPST) at NHTSA or TotSquad should you choose to have someone double check your installation.

Make sure you choose the correct size seat - Choosing the correct safety seat for baby’s height and age can get a bit confusing. In the above section, we outline the three main types of car seats and who they are best used for. Please also refer to your state (or the state you are traveling to) for laws and guidelines.
