How to choose the right baby car seat ?

More than one in two child seats is not properly secured, which represents a huge risk for babies and young children.

Due to the multiplicity of categories and genres, the choice of a baby seat or a child seat can be a real headache for parents.

Since the health and safety of your children is a priority, we explain in this video how to find your way among all the car seats available.

Which standard to trust? How to choose your child seat? By weight? Size ?

We answer you in this video.

For optimal safety, choose a new baby seat approved to European standards. To recognize them, they must have ECE R44 / 04 certification. R44 seats are classified according to the weight of the child, there are 5 categories from 0 to 3:

- Group 0: up to 10 kg         

- Group 0+: up to 13 kg         

- Group 1: from 9 to 18 kg         

- Group 2: from 15 to 25 kg         

- Group 3: up to 36 kg         

R129 seats are classified according to the size of the child, there are 6 categories, from birth to more than 125 cm:

- birth at 60 cm: corresponds to the basket         

- from 60 to 75 cm: corresponds to a group 0+ shell seat         

- from 75 to 87 cm: corresponds to the group 0 + / 1 car seat         

- from 87 to 105 cm: corresponds to the group 1 car seat         

- from 105 to 125 cm: corresponds to the group 1/2/3 car seat         

- from 125 cm: corresponds to the booster seat         

The safest seats to accompany your child are those of group 0+ with the rear-facing shell, but also buckets with a forward-facing harness (group 1) and of group 2-3 with booster and backrest.

More than one in two baby seats is not properly secured. Do not let a child sleep in their seat outside the car, this increases the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
