Teach you how to choose a baby safety seat?

According to various research data, accidental casualties have become a major risk factor for children’s life safety since the 1980s. Among them, road traffic accidents are the “number one killer” of child casualties.

However, if a safety seat is used, the risk factor of children’s traffic accidents can be greatly reduced. According to an experiment in a car crash test, in the event of an accident, a child with a child safety seat can die for a baby aged 0-3. The rate was reduced by 71%, and the mortality rate of children aged 3-6 was reduced by 54%.


哪些What are the key points to choose a safety seat?

First, the low is not necessarily reliable

In terms of price, there is a certain relationship between the use price and quality. As the saying goes, no money is spent. At a low price, its quality and safety are unreliable. In general, the cost of plastics and fabrics for an ordinary European standard child safety seat may be no less than 300 yuan, plus production costs, labor costs, logistics costs, etc., qualified safety seats are priced at 200-300. Yuan is impossible. Therefore, the price is less than 500 yuan, generally do not buy, because the child seat involves life safety, the unqualified seat can not play the role of protecting children.

Second, choose a common interface and fixed

There are three ways to secure the seat: seat belt, isofix and latch. Seat belts are universal and suitable for any car. Of course, some cars will also have problems with insufficient seat belt length. For the other two installations, the car must have Isofix or latch to purchase.

On July 1, 2013, China began to implement the National Standard for the Restriction System for Motor Vehicle Children and Crews. The child safety seat with ISOFIX fixed interface was selected when purchasing the child safety seat, which is more convenient to install.

Third, according to the age of the baby to buy

There are currently five types of car safety seats on the market (divided according to the child’s age, height, and weight): 0 group, 0+1 group, 1 group, 2 group, and 3 groups; there is another division method. : 0-9 months, 0-13 kg is suitable for baby baskets. At present, the safety seats are mainly divided into infant group (less than 9 months), infant group (0-4 years old) and schoolchildren group (4-12 years old). Each type is strictly divided into the age and weight of the child, so the mothers must purchase the car seat strictly according to the age of the child.

Fourth, material and process requirements

Some moms will ask: What is the best? The whole chair body adopts injection molding process, high-pressure one-time forming, built-in diamond force bracket structure, and then reinforcement design with reinforcing ribs. The back of the chair uses steel frame structure to resist high-impact impact, and safety is more secure. At the same time, the curved transition design, smooth design and concave arch design of the base avoid the seat from scratching others and ensure no damage to the car seat.

The fabric is directly in contact with the baby’s skin. A good child safety seat has good breathability and no strong irritating taste. Otherwise, it will make the baby feel uncomfortable and stimulate the baby’s soft skin. In addition, the material fabric must meet fire protection requirements, no toxicity, no harmful substances.


1, the baby uses the rear seat

Children under the age of 1 should always sit in a rear-facing safety seat. The inclination of the seat is between 30 and 45 degrees to prevent the baby’s head from sagging. The seat should not be over-reared, otherwise the child may slip out in the event of an accident.

2, the life of the safety seat

The life of a safety seat is generally updated and eliminated according to the age of the child, but in the event of an accident, the life of the safety seat becomes one-off. So as long as an accident occurs, it should be replaced no matter how fast the seat is.


The use of child safety seats is even more dangerous, and the child safety seat must know!

Although there are more and more families buying cars, the popularity of driving safety awareness is not optimistic. For example, some parents like to take their children in a car. Although they are wearing a seat belt, once they have an emergency brake or a collision accident, the child must be taken out and cannot hold tight. Some parents are free to let the child sit in the passenger car. Upper or rear seats, thinking that with airbags or front seats to protect you can sit back and relax, in fact, the protection effect is minimal; more directly let the children sit on their legs and drive together while playing with the child, completely set Driving safety is ignored.

In fact, we must know that the safety function of the car is mainly designed for adults. The curvature of the seat back is not suitable for the protection of the child’s spine and head, and the seat belt is also difficult to effectively fix the child. The most effective way to protect your child’s safety is to equip the child with a special child safety seat, but the use of the child safety seat is not as simple as our adult seat belts, poorly used, and the protective effect is also Will be greatly discounted, the following points of attention parents should pay attention.

Instructions for use should be read carefully

Each safety seat will have some differences, such as seat interface, seat belt fixing method, backrest adjustment method, etc. The manual will explain the installation, disassembly and adjustment methods of the seat in detail, which is the most correct tutorial. However, many people do not like to study the manual, feel too detailed and complicated, like to follow their own experience, or probably learn from the sales staff, so it is easy to miss a lot of details, maybe a mistake will cause irreparable pain, so carefully It is necessary to read the instruction manual, and it is related to the safety of the child. Don’t be afraid of trouble.

Children wear too much and are not fixed easily.

When the weather is cold, most parents will not wear a cold to protect their children. They will wear thicker clothes for them. They will not be able to take off their clothes and get on the safety seat after getting on the train. However, bloated clothing will make the child’s sitting posture unnatural, and the seat belt will not be close to the body. It is easy to form the illusion of “false tie”, and the thick clothes are generally loose, which will create a hidden danger: the child in the event of a serious collision May get out of clothing or seat belts. This is not an alarmist, it has been experimentally verified, and there have been real cases.

Prematurely changing the safety seat to the front is dangerous

During the baby’s time, the bone development is still immature, especially the spine is fragile, and the safety seat needs to be installed backwards, so that the soft backrest can effectively protect the child’s spine and head in case of emergency braking or collision. If the safety seat is installed too early, even if the seat belt protects the child from being thrown out, the forward inertia will still greatly damage the child’s spine.

It is reported that some states in the United States have enacted legislation requiring children to install the safety seat backwards before the age of two, and the best way is to keep the child as long as possible before the child reaches the safety seat and installs the required height and weight limits. Sit in the car.

Regularly check seat usage

Since the safety seat cannot accommodate both adults and children, and it takes up a lot of space, the safety seat is disassembled more frequently. Maybe three times and five times, parents can check the use of the safety seat, but it will be easy to ignore it after a long time.

It is best to check regularly or before each use to see if the seat is securely installed and the child is comfortable. In addition, the child has been growing for a long time. For a period of time, it is necessary to fine-tune the position of the shoulder strap, the tightness of the seat belt and the width of the seat to ensure that the child can ride safely and comfortably.


Finally, you need to be reminded that if there is a serious safety accident in the car, even if the safety seat does not have obvious appearance damage after protecting the child, it is recommended to replace it in time. Different from the ordinary car seat, in order to realize the protection function for the child, the safety seat is partially deformed to reduce the impact force, and some deformations are permanent, and the effective protection cannot be guaranteed.


Is it safe for your baby to use a safety seat?

With the popularity of safety awareness, the baby’s safety seat usage rate has increased year by year. Many parents feel that it is better to install in the back seat after buying it. If you want the safety seat to work, you must pay attention to the following aspects.

  1. Where is the safest installation?

The safest position must be behind the driver, because our car is in the left driving mode, the right rear line has certain obstacles and blind spots, and in the event of an accident, the driver often subconsciously chooses to protect himself from the left, so the safety seat The first choice must be right behind the driver, which is the left side of the back seat.

  1. A person driving with a baby under 2 years old, where should the safety seat be?

The first officer is the most dangerous position in the accident, and when the airbag pops up, the impulse may directly cause the baby to suffocate. Children under the age of 12 are not recommended to appear in the first officer. In addition, the flight of the co-pilot compartment may also hurt the baby.

Therefore, it is necessary to take a step back and install it behind the first officer to facilitate the parents to observe the baby’s condition through the rearview mirror during driving. As long as there are other people present, remember to move the safety seat back to the left.

  1. A baby under one year old needs to sit back to the driver!

For babies weighing less than 10 kg, the safety basket is the best choice. Because the traffic accidents are mostly stopped, the passengers will move forward because of inertia. The baby’s cervical spine under one year needs extra protection, so the seat needs to be reversed. Installation, baby and driver back to back.

  1. How do two babies in the house install a safety seat?

The baby who needs extra attention is placed in the right rear. Usually, the elderly are in the left rear and the younger baby is in the right rear. If there are other passengers in the car, please take the initiative to sit in the middle of the two safety seats to take care of the children.

  1. Need to change diapers during driving, feeding?

Of course, you have to stop by Don’t think that Dad is driving, it is convenient for my mother to pick up the breasts in the back. The danger will happen in an instant. The baby should stay in the safety seat as long as he is in the car. And the bumping of feeding or changing diapers can not guarantee the stability of the baby’s cervical spine, even the sudden braking is harmful to the baby’s brain development.

  1. Do you need a safety seat for long-distance coaches and taxis?

A basket-type safety seat can be prepared. If you are renting a car, you can ask the car rental company whether to provide a safety seat in advance. The basket-type safety seat can prevent accidents and be used as an artifact to carry a low-month-old baby. More care is more than one point of protection!
