Local and/or state laws regarding car seats and child restraint systems (booster seats).

New York's Occupant Restraint laws require the following:

  • Children up to the age of 4 must be properly restrained in a federally approved child safety seat that is attached to a vehicle by a seat belt or universal child restraint anchorage (LATCH) system.
  • Children less than age 4 but weighing more than 40 poundsmay be restrained in a booster seat with a lap/shoulder safety belt. However, a child safety seat that accommodates higher weights can be used.
  • Children ages 4, 5, 6 and 7 must be properly secured in an appropriate child restraint system, one for which the child meets the height and weight recommendations of the child restraint manufacturer.*
  • An appropriate child restraint system is one that meets the child's size and weight recommended by the manufacturer.
  • A vehicle's safety belt is NOT a child restraint system.
  • Children riding in booster seats must be secured with a combination lap/shoulder seat belt, NEVER secure a child in a booster seat with only a lap belt.
  • From the age of 8 until they reach their 16th birthday, children must be restrained in a seat belt whenever they ride in a vehicle. All Front seat passengers must be properly restrained at all times, regardless of age.
  • Children 12 years and younger should ride in the back seat. By simply buckling up your child in the back seat reduces his/her risk of death by 33%.

*It is recommended that booster seats be used until your child is 4 foot 9 inches tall or weighs 100 pounds.[/li][/list]

Chicco makes great carseats, no doubt.
One con is that the padded shoulder straps don't stay in place very well. Otherwise a fantastic car seat.

Is there any good forward facing car seat that is compatible with the UPV or no such thing exists?

the car seat adapters on carriages (including UBV) are for infant seats, which are rear facing.
you can find infant seats (such as the amazing chicco keyfit 30) that can hold child up to 30 pounds

I know (I have one), was looking for a forward one that would work with the UBV, but doesn't look like such a thing exists.

I need a forward facing car seat for SQ J, should I just try to fit the chicco as a forward facing (probably not going to work) or schlep along a ff car seat and the chicco/UBV (can't imagine doing this).

Any ideas?

7 months.
I'd bring both, but be sure to stick the Chicco in an overhead bin or in a closet.
You are not supposed to check a carseat.

I was trying to avoid this.

It's going to be a massive pain to bring both, especially since we have a stop over and leaving the airport.
