The Alpha Omega Car Seat - The Only Car Seat You Need
Most manufacturers of
baby car seats make at least 3 and sometimes 4 different
sizes to match the different sizes of your child. This means buying at least
3 different car seats as your child grows which can add up to a considerable
amount of money. The Alpha Omega car seat addresses this problem – it is
suitable for all children from 5 pound infants to 100 pound eight-year olds.
The Alpha Omega car seat is manufactured by Cosco. They also have a full
range of car seats in various sizes, but obviously felt there was a need for
a “grow with me” car seat.
There are three models of the Cosco Alpha Omega car seats. All three models can be used
in either a rear-facing or front-facing position. The rear-facing position
offers the greatest safety for small children and the front-facing position
has to be used for bigger children.
The rear-facing position is suitable for children up to 35 pounds in weight.
In this position, the Alpha Omega car seat can be attached using the
integral LATCH system that is standard equipment in late-model cars.
The Alpha Omega car seat can be reclined in three different positions for
infants and toddlers. There is an insert for infants that keeps baby
comfortable and secure.
Once your baby has outgrown the infant insert, he or she can continue to use
the same Alpha Omega car seat in the rear-facing position. The 5-point harness
system has 4 positions to match any size child.
When your child’s legs are too long to continue using the rear-facing
position, the Alpha Omega car seat converts to a front-facing car seat. The
adjustable pillow ensures that your child’s head will always be secure and
the 5-point harness can continue to be used until your child reaches 40
pounds in weight.
Children more than 40 pounds can use the Alpha Omega in the booster
seat mode. The booster position allows your child to use the car’s lap and
shoulder belts safely. The booster position gives your child comfortable
padded head support.
For an all-in-one car seat, this car seat is a pretty good
performer. Some parents may miss the carrier handle that is standard on most
infant car seats. Carrier handles allow you to easily carry baby from the
car to the house and also allow you to use the car seat as an extra bed when
you are visiting.
Other than the carrier handler, Cosco's Alpha Omega car seat has everything you
need in a child car seat.
