Conventional Car Seats
Conventional car seats are appropriate for many children with special health care needs. Conventional car seats are defined as those restraints that meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213. Conventional restraints can be purchased at retail stores and are not specifically designed for children with special health care needs. Examples include rear-facing only, convertible (all-in-one), combination seats, and belt-positioning boosters. Seats with harnesses to higher rear-facing and forward-facing weight limits have increased the number of conventional car seat options available for children with special health care needs.
