Lie flat car seat

Are there any car seats that lie completely flat for ages 3+ ?
Hi! There are no car seats in the sense of a conventional seat that lie flat. There are side facing car beds for newborns with medical issues. For children over 1 who have outgrown the largest car bed and need to lie flat for medical reasons, EZ-On makes a modified vest/harness that allows lying sideways across a bench style seat, using 2 or 3 seatbelts depending on the child's size. It is only suitable until the child is too long for the length of the seat they are on, at which point you have to switch to ambulance transport only if they need to lie completely flat. Again, this is significantly less safe than a rear- or forward-facing car seat, and should only be used in cases of medical necessity. If you have a medical need for one, we can try to connect you with a hospital seating clinic in your area.
