Great News from Orbit Baby


This just in from Orbit:

  • Through additional testing, our Infant Car Seat G2 can now be used for infants from 4 – 30 lbs, 32 in (previously 4 – 22 lbs, 29 in), when used on its own or with the Car Seat Base G2.
  • Our Toddler Car Seat can now be used forward-facing from 20 – 65 lbs, 50 in (previously 20-50 lbs, 49 in). The rear-facing limits stay the same at (15 – 35 lbs).
  • This change is retroactive for both seats that were ever sold in the United States, and Orbit Baby is offering an industry-first update program for our existing users, free of charge. They can request an update sticker kit to apply to their car seat to remind them of this updated weight rating by visiting this page on our website:
