For use in infant, toddler, and belt-positioning modes, the Alpha Omega Elite Convertible Car Seat has a weight range that will work for your little one from baby to youth. It starts as a rear-facing car seat, converts into a forward-facing seat and then transitions to a belt-positioning booster car seat as your child gets older. In addition to these 3 modes of use, you'll also appreciate the superior comfort and added convenience features which make this an Elite car seat. Pivoting armrests make getting your little one in and out of the seat a breeze, and the 5-position padded head rest adjusts height in one easy step. The seat also includes a removable cup holder which is a great place to store a drink or snack.
