Baby Car Seat
Baby car seats are a more than necessary purchase, even before the child’s birth. Apart from the obvious main reason (security of the baby), you also risk getting fined without one. According to traffic rules implemented in most countries, use of normal passenger seats by children is prohibited until post-infancy or even early teenage years.
Infant car seats on the market are literally thousands. For this reason, you might want to take some things into consideration, before going shopping.
First of all, you should know that every car seat for babies is classified in one or more categories according to the maximum weight it can handle. Therefore, you might need to replace an old car seat when your child grows older.
Another factor to pay attention to is the orientation of the seat. Front-facing seats are mainly aimed at older children. Backward facing ones protect the neck and the spine more effectively during a collision. So, they are recommended for newborns and toddlers. There are even some models that can be placed in both ways.
Choose the right baby car seat
Before making a purchase, please remember to check the installation mechanism of each seat. In car models produced before 2000-2006, the seat is usually stabilized with the use of seatbelts. In newer models, the so-called Isofix system is pre-installed, allowing the baby seat to be easily and securely placed in the car.
Finally, other factors to keep in mind when buying a baby car seat is the fabric (cotton is recommended) and the width, so that the child is not sandwiched.
