Graco 4Ever DLX 4 in 1 Car Seat | Infant to Toddler Car Seat, with 10 Years of Use, Fairmont

All-In-One Car Seats

Designed for ages: Newborn to Older Child

Much like a convertible seat, an all-in-one also has a rear-facing mode and a front-facing mode with a 5-pt harness. What really sets these seats apart, however, is that they also can then transition to a high back booster and occasionally even a backless booster for when your child is older and reaches certain size limits.

Chicco MyFit Harness + Booster Car Seat, Canyon

Combination Car Seats

Designed for ages: Older Toddler to Older Child

A combination seat is unique because it only works for a child who is ready to forward-face only. It has two modes: harness mode and high back booster mode. This means that you can secure your child in a 5-point harness system until they reach the max height and weight limit of the straps and only then transition them to booster mode.

Chicco KidFit 2-in-1 Belt Positioning Booster Car Seat - Atmosphere

High Back Booster Seats

Designed for ages: Older Toddler to Older Child (Minimum of at least 4 Years)

If your child is older, no longer fits in a front-facing convertible or combination 5-pt harness, or is especially big or mature, they may be ready for a high back booster seat. These are great when you want side wing protection for your growing child, which is nice for head support as well as in the event of a crash and just to help establish boundaries.

Backless Booster Seats

Designed for ages: Older Child (Minimum of at least 5-6 Years)

Though best used only for older children who have outgrown the height and weight limits of other options, a backless booster can technically be used by any child who weighs at least 40 pounds, is mature enough to sit properly for the entire ride (no slouching, leaning, or sleeping), and for which the booster provides proper placement of the seat belt.
