A car booster is a safe journey for your baby
When traveling with a child in a car, you should first of all remember the safety of your baby. It is for this purpose that the strict letter of the law prescribes the transportation of children in a special car seat. And parents need to understand that this adaptation is not a tribute to fashion, and not the caprices of officials, but an urgent need to organize the safety of the child.
There are so many children's car seats today. They are divided not only in appearance, but also in accordance with a certain age group of the child. So, for example, for the smallest on sale there are special avtolyubki. Depending on the group 0 or 0+, they are designed for babies weighing up to 9 and 13 kg, respectively. Older children should choose a car seat among the seats of groups 1,2,3. These models can be used from the moment when the child begins to sit confidently and has a weight of at least 9 kg. There is another type of child seat - an automotive booster. Let us dwell in more detail on this group of chairs.
What is a baby car seat booster? At its core, it is the same child seat, as well as other models, differing only in the absence of a backrest. Similar designs are designed for children aged 7 to 12 years, weighing from 22 to 36 kg, and the view that The car booster can be used already from the age of 4, it is extremely erroneous. After all, the minimum growth of a child for safe driving in this chair is 125, and ideally - 135 cm.
Booster children recently gained increasing popularity among motorists who have a child. It can be purchased not only in specialized stores,but also in almost any store of children's goods, in car markets and in auto parts stores. What caused such a high demand for an automobile booster? First of all, this is quite a low price compared to the models of armchairs having a back. It can vary from 250 to 10,000 rubles, while the price of a good car seat will be an order of magnitude higher. Another aspect of its popularity is ease of use. It is much easier to carry and much easier to attach to the car. Another undoubted advantage of the booster is its compact size.
But, nevertheless, despite the list of advantages, the car booster, according to experts, is not the preferred choice when buying a child seat. This is due to its design features. He is unlikely to be able to completely protect the child in the event of an accident - he will not protect himself with a side impact, and can even cause injury to the glass. The car booster only compensates for the missing growth of the child to properly fix it with a regular seat belt. And yet with this seat is much better than without it. The booster can be called a good alternative option when the child refuses to sit in a normal car seat.
In order for the car booster to provide maximum safety for the baby, when choosing it, you should pay attention to some points. For the upper strap of the standard seat belt, an adapter must be provided. For greater comfort in the design should be the armrests.
