For the safety of your child in the car, follow these instructions:
- Your baby and the baby seat should always be strapped in, even for very short rides.
- Never carry your child on your lap. When the car is moving, never take the baby in your arms for breastfeeding or to give the baby a bottle.
- Ensure the car seat is adapted to the baby’s age and weight. The seat must be mounted as specified by the manufacturer and placed on a rear seat.
- Check that it is secure before each use.
- Be careful to secure your child: the belt must not be twisted or loosely fastened, otherwise it is ineffective. Take off the baby’s jacket so that the belt fits more snugly.
- Never leave a child alone in the car.
- Protect the child from the sun using a sunblind or a piece of material clamped into the door.
- Clear the space behind the seats to prevent objects flying around during sudden braking or if an accident occurs.
- On long journeys, have a break every two hours and use the time to take your child out of the seat for a short while.
