Buying guide

Why you are buying a car seat for your baby?

Because you want your baby to have a safe and comfy journey. Am I right?

If that is so, then you need to consider the following main points before buying a car seat for your little one.

  • Your baby age
  • Your baby weight and height
  • Whether the car seat meets safety standards.

Here I give just a quick insight into the type of seat that goes in synergy with baby age:

  • Birth to age 2: use rear-facing car seat.
  • Age 2 to 4: use forward-facing car seat.
  • Age 4 to 8: use built positioning booster seat.
