Car Seat Guide

Find a car seat for any path

Discover the perfect fit for your child with this Graco-sponsored guide.

  • Rear-Facing Infant Car Seats Up to at least 1 year 4–40 lbs. and up to 35 in.*

    Lightweight and designed with baby’s size in mind, the carrier detaches from the base making it easy to take baby on the go. Adding a stay-in-car base makes it simpler to move between cars. Many models connect to strollers to create travel systems.

  • Convertible Car Seats Up to at least 4 years 4–65 lbs. and up to 50 in.*

    Two seats in one. Offers flexibility as your child grows but is less portable than rear-facing infant car seats. Converts from rear-facing to forward-facing harnessed booster seat as child grows. Children are safer riding rear-facing and should ride rear-facing as long as possible, until they reach the maximum rear-facing height or weight rating for their car seat.

  • All-in-One Car Seats Up to 12 years 4–120 lbs. and up to 57 in.*

    Three seats in one. Offers additional longevity as your child grows, these seats go from rear and forward-facing with a harness to a booster that works with the vehicle’s safety belt. Buy one car seat to last a whole childhood.

  • Booster Seats Up to 12 years Up to 120 lbs. or 43–57 in.*

    For bigger kids who are ready for a forward-facing seat. Once a child is ready for a forward-facing harness, then they can move to vehicle safety belt. Typically, light weight and easy to move from car to car or on-the-go.

“Easy to install and I like that the inserts are removable to wash without having to remove the entire car seat.”

Expiration dates can range anywhere from 6 to 10 years or more. Because you need to know when it’s time for a replacement, Graco stamps an expiration into the bottom of each car seat. Be sure to know the full history of any seat your family uses, including second-hand seats.
