Car Seat Size Guide

Did you know that the Type of Car Seat you use depends on your child’s age and height? Let’s look at different car seats and determine which is right for your child.

Rear-Facing Baby Car Seat

Rear-facing Car Seats are suitable for Babies and children up to 2 years of age. They are designed to protect your baby’s fragile neck and spine in the event of an accident.

They can be used till your child’s head is below the top of the car seat.

Front Facing Child Car Seat

Front-facing Car Seats are suitable for children above 2 years of age till they’re 5 years old. They provide impeccable side impact protection with extra padding and absorbing materials.

They can be used till your child’s ears are below the top of the car seat.

Convertible Car Seat

Convertible car seats offer flexibility as they can be used both rear-facing and forward-facing. They are suitable for infants and toddlers, providing extended use as your child grows.

Convertible Car Seats on Jollee are a versatile option that keeps up with your child’s growth.

Booster Car Seat

Booster seats are designed for older children who have outgrown their convertible seats but are not yet ready to use the adult seatbelt alone. They raise your child to the appropriate height for the seatbelt to fit correctly.

The child’s back must be against the seat back and their legs should bend at the edge of the seat.

Afterwards, children can use the car seatbelt alone when they reach the height of 4′-9″.

Car Seat Features to Look For

When it comes to car seats, safety is paramount. Therefore, ensuring that the car seat you choose meets the safety standards and regulations with a certain essential set of features is non-negotiable.


ISOFIX is a standardized system for installing car seats in vehicles. It is also known as LATCH in the United States. ISOFIX/LATCH is designed to make installing car seats easier and safer without using the seatbelt.

Here’s how ISOFIX works:

  1. Anchors: Your vehicle has metal anchors between the rear seat cushions and backrest designed for attaching compatible car seats.
  2. Connectors: ISOFIX/LATCH-equipped car seats have connectors on their base that easily click onto the anchors in your vehicle. Usually, there are two lower anchors and a top tether anchor.
  3. Top Tether: For added stability, a top tether strap connects to a designated anchor point in your vehicle, primarily used with forward-facing car seats.

Adjustable Straps and Harnesses

Choose a car seat with adjustable straps and harnesses to ensure a snug and secure fit as your child grows.

Easy-to-Clean Fabrics

Messes are a part of parenthood. Hence, look for car seats with removable, machine-washable covers for effortless cleaning.

Knowing When It’s Time to Transition

Eventually, your child will outgrow their car seat, and it’ll be time to transition to the next stage.

Signs It’s Time to Transition

Keep an eye out for indicators such as your child’s head being less than an inch from the top of the seat or surpassing the height and weight limits set by the manufacturer.

Choosing the safest car seat for your child is a significant decision for a parent. Moreover, it’s an investment in your child’s safety during every car journey. So, gear up, stay informed, and keep your little travel buddy secure on your family’s adventures.
