CHOOSING THE RIGHT CAR SEAT FOR YOU
Choosing the right safety gear for your baby can be difficult and needs a great deal of careful consideration. By being an integral part of the daily routine, an appropriate car seat will protect your child in the car and will be a trustworthy partner from bringing your baby home for the first time until they are 12 years old.
Which car seat is suitable for my child’s age and weight?
Infant car seat (0-13kg or 45-87cm) is the first safety product used in the car as well as for carrying your baby around. Infant car seat can only be attached in the car facing backwards using a seat belt or Isofix base. Nordbaby recommends always using an Isofix base for it’s quick, easy, and most importantly, safe everyday use. Most infant car seats can also be attached to a stroller frame with stroller adapters which come in especially handy during travelling or short strolls.
In the next car seat age group there is a variety of products to choose from: a universal car seat which will accommodate your child from birth to 12-years or car seats in group 1/2/3 suitable for children from 9 to 36 kilograms. Nordbaby offers a wide selection of universal and group 1/2/3 car seats by Cybex, Joie, Nuna, Graco and Goodbaby.
Which car seat should I choose?
Before buying a car seat, it is important to decide how long you are planning to use it. The safer and more convenient option is to use 3 car seats from different groups (Infant car seat, car seat and booster seat) during your child’s growth. You can also opt for a single car seat which will “grow” with your child from birth to 12 years. Generally, the second option is more affordable, because only one car seat is needed in total. However, it is not possible to remove the child from the car along with this type of car seat similarly to an infant car seat. Furthermore, the safety test results for car seats in different age groups tend to be higher than those which are universal.
Choose a car seat which will rotate by 360⁰ for more convenient placing and removing of your child or look for additional features such as one-handed backrest adjustment, headrest adjustment and safety harness holders.
Which car seat will fit in my vehicle?
The statistics show, that over 50% of parents do not fit the car seat in their vehicle correctly. Incorrect fitting of the car seat will multiply the baby’s as well as other passenger’s health risks during an accident. To reduce and minimize the risk of incorrect fitting of car seats, an automobile association ADAC conducts regular safety tests in Europe. Also, many new car seat models and Isofix bases now have safety indicators for more convenient and fool-proof fitting. If your car has Isofix slots, you can use a car seat which has an Isofix base or Isofix attachments. If your car does not have Isofix slots, choose a car seat, which can be attached with a seat belt.
The purpose of the car safety gear is to ensure your child is safe and protected during a high or slow speed car accident. When placing your child in the car seat, make sure their head, neck and spine are safely positioned.
Most of the car seats by Cybex, Joie, Nuna, Graco and Goodbaby sold in Nordbaby are equipped with integrated L.S.P. (Linear Side Protection), which will reduce the force of a side-impact collision by approximately 25%.
