Car seat safety : Some myths busted.
Here is a cheat sheet that would help you in keeping your child safe in your car:
Myth: Pre- loved car seats are good to go
Truth: Car seats come with an expiry date
Pre-loved stuff might be convenient and easy on your pocket, however if you talk about car seats, they are totally not worth the risk. You won’t know if the car seat has been through a car crash or if it has been compromised with. Also, over the time the plastic could have degraded. Make sure you know the history of a pre-loved car seat and don’t forget to check the expiry date, which you would find on a sticker affixed to the car seat’s registration card.
Myth: You could make your older child sit in the front seat
Truth: Children under 13 are safer at the back
Myth: A seat belt alone could protect smaller kid
Truth: Kids smaller than. 4ft 9inches need a booster seat
Myth: You can make a 1 year old ride forward facing
Truth: Rare-facing is adviced till the age of 2
Myth: The best car seats are the expensive ones
Truth: Car seat that is approved is quite safe
I recently came across an Indian car seat : Jack and Jill Baby car seat from R for Rabbit which is a renowned brand for a great range of baby gear.
The high fives of Jack and Jill Baby carseat :
- It’s convertible, i.e. it has rear as well as front seating
- Weighs under 5 kgs
- Comfortable head rest
- Well fitted seat pad
- Easy to fix
- It doesn’t need a base, since it could be set easily directly on the car seat with the help of the seat belts
- It’s certified by European Nations ECE R44/04 Safety standards
- Comes with a side impact Protection feature
- State of the art design
- Has 3 position recline to suit your child’s comfort
- Integrated with 5 point harness
- Has a washable seat cover
- Can be exposed to Sun for a long time, hence you won’t have to uninstall it if your car is exposed to the sun for a longer time
