Do newborns need car seat insert?
Most infant seats come with special cushioned inserts to secure baby’s head; if not, pad the sides and the area around your baby’s head and neck with a tightly-rolled blanket. And never use inserts that don’t come with the car seat; it not only voids the warranty, but it could make baby unsafe.
When do you take infant insert out of Graco?
The infant insert can be removed before that as long as the harness is even with or below the baby’s shoulders and baby fits properly. The chest clip should be placed at armpit height and the harness should pass the pinch test.
Should a baby car seat be behind the driver or passenger?
Is car seat safer behind driver or passenger? The safest place for your child is in the back of the car, so do always try to fit your car seat in the back. The back middle seat is generally the safest and can be used, but only if the seat has a three-point seat belt.
