Safety is the first rule when traveling with young infants and children. That's always the rule that parents have with their babies especially while traveling in a vehicle. With so many road accidents around the world, road safety has become quite a cause for concern. More and more people now take precautionary measures over the safety of their families while on the road especially infants and children to ensure that they reach their destinations safe and sound.
It is recommended by experts that an infant car seat or premature baby car bed is only fitted in the rear of the car. Infant carriers must be used in a rear-facing position until your child either exceeds the manufacturers weight limit of the seat or reaches 2 years of age. Travelling in the rear of the car and also rearward facing reduces your child's risk of serious injury in the event of a car crash by over 50% so this is advice that should be followed to ensure the maximum safety of your child.
For children under a year of age they should be placed in rear-facing seats in the centerof the rear seat. Older children can sit facing front and their seat are generally placed behind the driver or passenger in order to utilize the shoulder/lap belts.
After the infant stage, the toddler and above stage can be in a forward-facing unit or convertible, for those that only want to buy one product that will last for several years. Many parents choose the ones that can also be used in a travel system like with strollers and extra stay-in-car bases. This makes traveling with a baby much more convenient for the whole family.
