How to install Evenflo Nurture Infant Car Seat
Some car seats are convertible, which means that they are designed to be both rear-facing and forward-facing. However,this car seat is only rear-facing, since it is designed specifically for infants.
Evenflo Nurture Infant Car Seat can be installed in two ways: with or without the car seat base. If you will be using the car seat often in the car, you may need to buy the car seat base separately, as it makes installing the car seat much easier and saves time.Nevertheless, you may not need the car seat base if you are going to carry the car seat by the handle frequently, or transfer-it into a stroller.
To install the car seat without the base:
- Position your little one in the car seat, and ensure that he is placed properly.
- Fasten the baby securely with the 5-point harness strap. Ensure that the harness is not too loose so that your baby does not slip and fall, or too tight so that your baby is not uncomfortable.
- Then, secure the car seat properly with the seat belt of the vehicle.
