This model appears to not have a top anchor for the top strap to be connected to and would have to be welded in to the vehicle. Have it serviced, and installed, if it is a forward facing car seat... if a rear, just use the usual seat belt and pull it through the bottom slots of your child seat, while making sure that the seat belt is fully extended. Once you do, you will hear clicks while it begins to return to its normal position, that is the sound that the child safety feature in your carolla is working. Make sure the seat is snug and the front seat is also tight against the baby seat.

How do I know when to buy a bigger seat or which positions?


His legs bending does not mean that he is too big for the seat. He is too big for the seat when his head reaches one inch from the top of the chair while sitting in it.

I have a new graco cleo car seat. What weight and age does my baby have to be before I shoud face it forward in the car?


Group 0 Until the age of 12 months (13kg/28lbs), your child must always be in a rear-facing position. Group 0+ car seats move from a reclined to a seated position, whilst perfectly supporting your child's back.
Group 0+ Until the age of 12 months (13kg/28lbs), your child must always be in a rear-facing position. Group 0+ car seats move from a reclined to a seated position, while perfectly supporting your child's back.

Group 0+/1 Children are unique and grow at different paces so category 0+/1 seats are highly flexible to reflect this. Babies up to 9kg (19 lbs) can travel safely facing the rear. From 18kg (39lbs) the seat can be adjusted so they face forward, allowing you to spend more time face-to-face with your baby which is an important part of parent-child bonding.

Group 1/2/3 The car seats in this category grow with your child from 9 months to 12-years old (9-36kg/19-79 lbs) so they can remain comfortable and importantly, develop properly. This flexibility makes it the ideal car seat category for large families and grandparents with grandchildren of different ages.

Group 2/3 A child must have a car seat that is tailored to their weight, height and age until they are 12 years-old, or 36kg (79lbs). The group 2/3 category offers convertible seats for older children aged between 4 and 12 (15-36kg/33-79lbs), this means the car seat grows with your child.


Hope this helps, I have a graco for my 12 week old, this info is from the graco website

Bye for now

Can i place the car seat facing front?


Hi - If it is an infant carrier Group 0+ carseat it must never be installed facing forwards. It is designed as a rear facing carseat to keep your child safe in the event of an accident. Always install a carseat according to the instructions.

How to install front facing baby start car seat


Identify the parts. A car seat will likely come with two parts - the base and the actual cradle itself. The base part is what will actually be in the car, while the baby cradle (seat) is removable and portable - the baby cradle can be taken out of the car and easily attaches to most grocery carts (the front part where bigger kids sit) and restaurant high chairs (move the standard restaurant high chair upside down and you will have yourself a cradle holder).

Give it a try. Place the booster flat on the backseat of your car and run the seat belt around it to hold it down - read your instructions and they will have detailed graphs on how the seat belt hurts. Also look at your car manual as they will have special instructions and buckles for car seats

Get confirmation. Move your baby seat cradle on top of the base (remember, it always faces the rear, when your child is old enough you will have to buy a different type of car seat that faces forward towards you). With your hand, sternly move your baby car seat from side to side, if the cradle is easily swaying your car booster is not securely fastened. Remove the cradle and pull the car seat belt as snug as you can and try again

Get double confirmation. Call your local fire department and make an appointment to stop by - they will check and confirm your car seat is installed securely. Remember, this could save your child's life so 10 minutes with your local fire department is only a very small inconvenience!

How long should my baby be rear-facing?


According to common recommendations, babies have to be rear-facing until at least one year old and at least 20 pounds, whichever comes last. The reason for this is that in case of an accident, this allows the pressure to be distributed along the entire back and neck of the baby. Some parents worry this might break the baby's legs. It's important to remember that a crash strong enough to break your baby's legs might break its neck and back if facing forward. While nobody wants their baby to be injured in any way, remember that a leg injury is much easier to recover from than back injury.
