3. When about to use the baby car seat, make sure that you read the safety instructions indicated therein and follow them. Seats that are "infant only seat" are for those weighing only up to 20 pounds. You may use them with or without the base when placing it in your car.When used in the vehicle, the handle of the infant-only seats should be down.
4. The infant-only seat should be strapped at the center back seat of the car. That is the safest area of the car for it. Your baby should be rear facing. Never ever put your child in the front seat where there is an air bag. Not only is it illegal, it is also dangerous as the airbag can easily suffocate and kill your baby.
