car seat

Is it safe to put the car seat in the car without the base if you use the seat belt?

I know you can as long as you get it to fit tight enough without the base.  You want to make sure it doesn't slide around.   We use it without the base when we travel but not at home or for frequent car trips with relatives.

not sure, you can check with your local fire dept usually.

I think it depends on the brand and model. Check the user manual. I have done without the base while traveling so we had one less thing to bring.

I recently found out about what Krystle stated - a fire department can help. My cousin had a fire department check her car seats and verify they were in properly. This is not something I ever knew but it is one additional place to seek knowledge about car seat safety.
