Backseat Driver: The Car Seat Conundrum

(excerpted by the author)

Nobody ever knows what to get for a car seat. There are a surprising number of options from mainstream and specialty manufacturers. The car has become, after all, an extension of our homes, and the infant car seat in particular, an extension of baby’s crib, in itself an extension of mother’s womb.

It’s unfortunately also not a decision you get to just make once. Every year in your new family’s life, it seems, there’s something – - the infant bucket, the convertible seat (many of which can support infants, just not outside the car), the booster seat… God forbid you add to the family while still using the convertible…do you get another for a matching set? Or re-evaluate the market once more based on a new decision set? Chances are you have beefs with the current seat – everybody does… Want to fit even a waif-like adult in the back middle seat? Good luck…

Truly, it’s not just about the seat any more. Some stroller manufacturers like Orbit Baby are designing new systems for baby transportation, including car seats in their line-up. Others are designing-in exclusive stroller compatibility
with a few other brands. Locking in some of these variables has enabled some interesting new features – for example, Orbit’s ability to rotate 360 degrees on the car seat base, vastly improving back-seat ergonomics at loading/unloading time. Orbit’s car seat meets or exceeds safety standards, and also boasts environmentally-friendly fabrics and materials – but it has other limitations, being notoriously heavy, not to mention expensive.
