WARNING:
To reduce the risk of serious injury
or death, read this owner’s manual prior
to installing and using this child restraint.

More children are killed every year as passengers
in car crashes than by any other type of injury.
To reduce the risk of SERIOUS INJURY or DEATH, read
this owner’s manual and your vehicle owner’s manual
before installing and using this child restraint. Using a
child restraint makes a big difference. By properly using
this child restraint and following these instructions (and
the instructions that accompany your vehicle), you will
greatly reduce the risk of serious injury or death to your
child from a crash. Do not be misled by the commonly
used term “safety seat;” no restraint system can prevent
all injuries in all crashes. Many properly restrained
adults and children are injured in motor vehicle crashes, including relatively minor crashes. A properly used
child restraint is the best way to minimize injuries to
your child and to increase the chances for your child’s
survival in most crashes.

U.S. REGULATORY NOTICE
This child restraint meets all applicable requirements of
Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 213.
For Canadian Models
CANADIAN REGULATORY NOTICE
This child restraint meets all applicable requirements of
Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Standards CMVSS 213
and 213.1.
Child Requirements
• No restraint can guarantee absolute protection from
injury in every crash.
• This child restraint is designed for use by children in
rear-facing and forward-facing positions. To use this
child restraint properly, children MUST meet weight/
size specifications as follows:
For Rear-facing Use
• 2.3 to 18 kg (5 to 40 lbs)
• 48 to 102 cm (19 to 40 inches)
• Top of head is at least 25 mm (1 inch) below
the top of the child restraint seat back.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends
that children ride in the rear-facing position to
the highest weight or height allowed by the child
restraint.
Note: Once your child exceeds 18 kg (40 lbs)
OR the top of their head is within 25 mm
(1 inch) of the top of the child restraint seat
back, you MUST use this child restraint in the
forward-facing position.
For Forward-facing Use
• 10 to 29.4 kg (22 to 65 lbs)
• 71 to 137 cm (28 to 54 inches)
• At least one year of age
Note: Once your child exceeds 29.4 kg (65 lbs)
OR is taller than 137 cm (54 inches), they can
no longer safely use this child restraint, and
you should consider using a booster seat.
1
PREMATURE INFANT USE
Before using this child restraint for preterm or low
birth weight infants you must read and follow the
guidelines in this section.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, a properly installed child restraint reduces the risk of death by over 70 percent for infants
involved in crashes. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety
Standard (FMVSS) 213 establishes design and
dynamic performance requirements for child restraint
systems. However, the standard has no minimum
weight limit and does not address the special
medical needs of preterm or low-birth weight infants.
To ensure that preterm and low-birth weight infants
are transported safely, the guidelines published by the
American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) in Pediatrics
2009;123:1424–1429 must be followed.
All children should ride rear-facing in the vehicle
as long as possible. Preterm and low-birth weight
infants are at additional risk of breathing difficulties
and heart problems when placed in a child restraint.
Evenflo requires that the evaluation recommended
by the AAP be conducted for all infants born earlier
than 37 weeks and all newborn infants who weigh
less than 5 pounds at birth before their first car trip to
check for breathing difficulties or heart rate problems
when traveling in a rear-facing child restraint.
The AAP recommends that appropriate hospital staff
observe your infant in the child restraint for a
period of 90 to 120 minutes or the duration of travel,
whichever is longer. This period of observation must
be performed with the infant properly positioned
as described in these instructions and with the child
restraint placed at an angle that is approved for use
in the vehicle. The hospital staff will check for any
breathing difficulties or heart rate problems. Your
child’s pediatrician will let you know if there are
any special considerations for travel. The number of
trips and the duration of time the infant is seated in
the child restraint should be minimized. A caregiver
should ride in the back seat to monitor the infant
during travel.
You can learn more about the AAP’s recommendations
for observation of newborns and the guidelines for
safe transportation of preterm and low-birth weight
infants, as well as other resources for parents and
medical professionals, at
http://www.aap.org/healthtopics/carseatsafety.cfm.

WARNING
Air Bag Warnings
• DO NOT use this restraint in the front seat of a vehicle
equipped with an air bag. Interaction between a rearfacing restraint and air bags may cause serious injury
or death. Air bags may cause serious injury or death to
children 12 and under. If your vehicle has an air bag,
refer to your vehicle owner’s manual for child restraint
installation.
• If the rear seat of your vehicle is equipped with side air
bags, refer to the following information for proper usage:
Vehicles built prior to the 2002 model year: DO NOT
use this restraint in a vehicle seating position equipped
with a side air bag unless authorized by the vehicle
manufacturer.
Model year 2002 and newer vehicles: Refer to your
vehicle owner’s manual before placing this restraint in a
seating position equipped with a side air bag.
• DO NOT place any objects between the restraint and
the side air bag, as an expanding air bag may cause the
items to strike your child.

locations. There are many thousands of combinations of
vehicle makes, models, child restraint configurations, seat
belt designs, and seat cushion shapes. The easiest way
to determine whether your child restraint is suitable for
a particular seating position is to check for a tight
installation. If the child restraint cannot be properly
installed, DO NOT use the child restraint. Consult vehicle
owner’s manual, try a different seating location, or call
Evenflo at 1-800-233-5921 (U.S.) or 1-937-7733971 (Canada).
Premature Infants
• DO NOT use this or any child restraint with a premature infant until after consulting your doctor. Premature
infants may have difficulty breathing when in a sitting
position.

the harness to the child, which may allow the child to be
ejected from the restraint during a crash.
Safe Practices
• Everyone rides buckled up or the vehicle does
not go. Make no exceptions for adults or children. If
someone unbuckles, stop the vehicle. Being firm and
consistent from the start will mean fewer discipline
problems as children get older. An unrestrained person
can be thrown into and injure other passengers.
• Manysafetyadvocatesandhealthcareprofessionals
recommend that children ride rear-facing for as long as
possible. See limitations recommended on rear-facing
use on page one.
• NEVER try to tend to a crying baby’s needs while
driving. NEVER take a baby out of a child restraint for
comforting while the vehicle is moving.
• DO NOT allow a child in a vehicle to have objects such
as lollipops or ice cream on a stick. The object can
injure the child if the vehicle swerves or hits a bump.
