Infant car seats

Important: If you supply products for sale on Amazon, you must comply with all federal, state, and local laws and Amazon policies applicable to those products and product listings.

Amazon's listing policies require all child restraint systems (also known as children’s car seats) to be certified to the applicable ASTM F2050, 16 CFR 1225, and/or 49 CFR 571.213 standard. Amazon defines these products as follows:

Child restraint systems mean any device designed for use in a motor vehicle to restrain, seat, or position children who weigh 30 kilograms (kg) or less. These are categorized into different types with different applicable standards:

  • Handheld infant carriers have a seat back that is intended to be in a reclined position (more than 10° from horizontal).
  • 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.
