Having a baby means you should prepare a special car seat for him/her. You want him/her feel comfortable on his/her first journey to the granny house, right? Now, there are many variant of car seats that you can choose depending on your needs.
Not just car seats, but in here I also give some reviews about items that you might be need to complete the car seat.
Things to Consider Before Buy a Car Seat
1. Soft and durable material.
2. Easy to install.
3. The seat must be suitable for your child, and it should also fit your car perfectly.
5. Plenty of secure adjustment for the time when the baby is older.
6. Soft shoulder pads to prevent it rub against baby’s shoulders.
7. Adjustable belt clip for rear and forward facing.
8. The car seat cover (if any) must machine washable.
Car Seat Protector, Do We Need It?
Keep baby car seat in place is an essential thing to remember when you are planning for a long trip. That’s why you need car seat protector. A seat protector can prevents slipping. This means that your child will be safer and more secure.
Hey, you know what? They also have two-stages that grow with your child. What a good news, right? I myself like the one with storage pocket. The organizer pocket (usually in the front, but some have back storage too) is great for storing his/her snacks or toys.
One more thing, make sure it’s washable. You will need it after several months when you find out it starts to get smelly.
Keep The Baby’s Head Round!
Head-support helps baby’s head so it won’t lies flat against a hard surface. It also help against flat head syndrome and maintain the roundness of baby’s head. You can put it in car seats, strollers, or bouncy seats.
What about body support then? Besides surrounding the head and neck, this can help provide soft and comfortable back support for the baby.
Car Seat Covers!
The main function of a car seat cover is to keep your baby warm and protected. It makes sure your baby comfortable and feel cozy. Whatever the bad weather outside there, your baby will sleep with smile inside the cover. It’s absolutely perfect for winter.
Pink Car Seat for Your Sweet Angel
Oh, so you just got a girl baby? That’s good news, awesome actually. What can be more beautiful than her angel face with super innocent eyes. I could even melt for that.
When a woman has a girl baby, she starts to purchasing any items with pink color, or pink accent at least. Nothing wrong with that! Somehow, pink is made for girl. I know some boys (or men) like pink color too, but it just comes to my mind every time I see something with pink, THIS IS FOR GIRLS!
Super Soft Strap Covers
Do you notice that some babies always complain when their mommies put they on the car seat? Well, my friend’s daughter was one of them. After she made some moves in her seat, the strap starts digging into her shoulders. That’s the moment when I think strap cover is important.
If you think you need one too, make sure to pick the softest one. Some strap cover also reversible. Reversible strap covers can add comfort for baby when travelling in car seats, or strollers.
So, what’s the exact purpose for purchasing strap covers? These strap covers keep the strap from hurting your precious baby. The strap can rub baby’s neck and shoulders, especially in a long trip. They even can help supporting baby’s head in case he/she falls asleep in the car.
Now, do you realize how important these strap covers?
