Newborn babies can be too small to fit safely into a car seat without the extra padding a newborn insert provides. As babies get bigger, they outgrow the newborn insert. That’s the reason the newborn insert is removable. For safety purposes, though, it’s important not to take the insert out too early.
When can you take the newborn insert out of the car seat?
As time goes on and your baby grows, the newborn cushion and head hugger can be removed; this is generally between 5-6 months of age. When you remove the cushion from under the baby, it will ‘drop’ them down in the seat, giving them more room to grow.
