Car seats come in three types, based on the age, height and weight of chil­dren

Friday - - Advertorial -

FOR BA­BIES (0-12 MONTHS, UP TO 10KG) A rear-fac­ing car­rier: ‘New­born seats face rear­ward so that a child will be pushed into the seat on front-im­pact and the shell and in­lay pro­tect the spine and vi­tal parts,’ says Thomas. Ju­niors In­fant Di­a­dem, Dh330.

UN­TIL 12 YEARS OLD (15-36KGS) A booster seat: These boost the child higher with a bot­tom cush­ion and can later be used with­out the back­rest, so the child can use the car’s seat­belt to har­ness them­selves. Bri­tax, Dh1,345

FOR TOD­DLERS (1-3.5 YEARS) A for­ward-fac­ing seat: This can ac­com­mo­date chil­dren up to 18kg. This Maxi Cosi Axiss seat swivels to make get­ting in and out eas­ier. Dh1,720.

COM­BI­NA­TION SEAT ‘Used from 0-12 years, these trans­form from an in­fant seat to a booster seat as the child grows,’ says Nisar. ‘While they’re eco­nom­i­cal, it’s best to up­grade to in­di­vid­ual age-ap­pro­pri­ate seats.’ Graco, Dh995.
