Infant child seats are child support devices that secure the body to the seat to ensure safety when a child is in a car. There are many different types of this product:
Handheld infant carriers have a seat back that is intended to be in a reclined position (more than 10° from horizontal). Amazon policy applies to hand-held infant carrier and infant car seat bases, including standalone bases sold without carrier.
Booster seats are either a backless child restraint system or a belt-positioning seat.
Backless child restraint systems (i) consist of a seating platform that does not extend up to provide a cushion for the child’s back or head, and (ii) have a structural element designed to restrain forward motion of the child’s torso in a forward impact.
Belt-positioning seats (i) position a child on a vehicle seat to improve the fit of a vehicle belt system on the child, and (ii) lack any component, such as a belt system or a structural element, designed to restrain forward movement of the child’s torso in a forward impact.
Forward-facing child restraint systems position a child to face in the direction of travel of the motor vehicle.
Rear-facing child restraint systems position a child to face in the direction opposite to the normal direction of travel of the motor vehicle.
Travel systems include full-size, stand-alone strollers with a compatible infant car seat that clips into the stroller.
Portable child seat belts / smart kids belts are permitted to be used in Japan as belt type infant auxiliary devices.
Fabric systems, also known as Fabric Car Seats, are products made of fabric (nylon, cotton, etc.) with straps, clips and padding, intended to restrain a child in a car. These products lack any type of metal or hard plastic frame. They are foldable and lightweight. At this time, fabric systems are not allowed for sale on Amazon.
