In Costa Rica by
law, all the babies, children under 12 years have to be in a child safety
seat ( baby seat, car infant seat, booster seat) installed on the back
seat of the vehicle.
If you're pregnant or have an infant, you have two choices in a car seat.
The first, which most parents opt for, is an infant seat. This seat is
designed specifically for use with infants generally from 5 pounds to 22
pounds and is always used rear-facing in the car. An infant seat provides
features that offer convenience for you and comfort for your baby. For
example, this type of seat is lightweight and has a carrying handle so
you'll find you can transport your baby from one place to another without
disturbing her sleep. Many offer a separate base which allows the parent
to snap the seat easily in and out of the car, and you can get more bases
for additional vehicles.
Your other choice of car seat for an infant is a convertible seat, which
is used in the rear-facing position for infants, then converted to the
forward-facing position for toddlers. Although convertible seats lack most
of the convenience features common to infant seats, they're an economical
way to provide protection, as one seat can generally accommodate your
child from 5 to 40 pounds.
Convertible Child Seat:
If an infant seat doesn't meet your needs, the alternative is a
convertible seat, which accommodates both infants and toddlers through a
single purchase. That's because a convertible seat, which is required for
children over 22 pounds, can accommodate infants from 5 to sometimes as
high as 35 pounds when used in the rear-facing position.
Unlike infant seats, convertibles cannot be used as carriers or rockers,
and are not compatible with stroller systems.
Note: Pediatricians and child care advocates recommend that you keep your
child rear-facing from their first ride home from the hospital up to at
least one year of age and at least 20 pounds.
When your child outgrows her infant seat, the right car seat for your
child is a convertible car seat. Convertible seats are so called because
they can generally be used rear-facing for infants from 5 to 35 pounds,
then converted to a forward-facing position for use with toddlers 20 to 40
When your child reaches about 40 pounds, it's time to move her out of a
convertible car seat and into a booster seat. Most boosters are designed
to accommodate children from 30 to 100 pounds.
Although some parents choose not to purchase a booster seat, as they feel
the auto's seat belts alone are adequate protection. Others consider
buying a booster only because it allows the child to see out the window.
An automobile's seat-belt system is designed for adults, not small
children, and most likely will not fit your child properly. A booster seat
is designed to use your car's seat belts, but makes important adjustments
to provide better fit and comfort, which encourages your child to wear the
seat belt properly. A booster raises your child so the car's lap belt goes
over his pelvis and hips, not his abdomen. In addition, many boosters
provide an adjustment clip to ensure that the shoulder belt does not cross
your child's face or neck. (If the shoulder strap crossed his neck or face,
your child might be tempted to move it out of position, which could be
dangerous in the event of a collision.)
Many states have laws that require children older than 4 and/or weighing
more than 40 pounds to be in a car seat.
What is Side Impact testing?
Side impact testing simulates a crash in which the vehicle carrying the
car seat is struck on the side by another vehicle. An example of a “real
life” side impact collision is when a car crossing an intersection is
struck on the side by another car that ran a stop sign.
Why is it important?
Approximately one out of four vehicle crashes have a side impact component.
How are car seats tested now?
Car seat standards require a frontal impact test with a 30 mph velocity
change. This approximates the crash forces generated in a collision
between a vehicle traveling 60 mph and a parked car of similar mass, or
the energy produced in a fall from a three story building. There are
currently no provisions in the U.S. and Canadian standards for side impact
testing. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
is in the early stages of developing a child side impact test standard.
What is the Evenflo Side Impact Testing?
The Evenflo Side Impact test protocol was developed by Evenflo engineers
using state-of-the-art facilities. The rigorous test simulates the energy
in the severe 5 star government side impact tests conducted for
