TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Car seats are very important for children when traveling by car as it is useful for the toddler's safety. A child safety seat can have various types according to the needs of the child's age. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that children under 2 years old should use a special seat while in the car.
Choosing a Car Seat
1. Pick a product from trusted brands
Quoted from the info from Suzuki, you should not be easily tempted by low-price offers which might affect the quality.
2. Has additional features
Supporting features to apply comfort must be considered before buying a car seat. One of the important additional features is the seating ability to change the baby's position flexibly.
There is also a carry handle feature for parents to become much easier in carrying the baby as they always need to be lifted and carried to help their spinal growth.
3. Comfortable material
Babies are very sensitive to heat. Therefore it's best to consider the seat material is not too thick and easily heats. Material that is too thick can cause prickly heat that will lead to moisture on the baby's back.
4. Adjusted to body weight
Each type of car seat is made to be able to bear a certain weight. This is why it is important to know the baby's and the child's weight so it could be adjusted to the chair. A car seat that doesn't fit the weight can be dangerous and uncomfortable for the child to sit as they will feel cramped.
