5 must have car seat accessories

Sometimes just having a car seat while traveling with your baby isn’t enough as your child may have other needs on the road. There are many accessories out there that can help suit the needs of you and your child when everyone is traveling. Here are some of my must have car seat accessories to have in your car at all times. 

 

1. Baby head and neck pillow

The head and neck pillow is perfect for smaller children who need the extra support. This provides extra comfort that can make your child happy and comfortable in car rides. Not only does it give extra comfort to your child, it also helps to support their heads if they need to take naps. This is a must buy if you take long car rides frequently so that your baby feels comfortable always. You can get one from Babydash here.

 

2. Cup holder

Stuck in a jam and your baby is hungry? A cup holder can save the day. The cup holder is essential to have for your car seat in order to hold milk bottles in the car. Spilled milk because of bumpy roads is really annoying to clean up so having an accessory like a cup holder to make sure the milk bottle does not spill over will save you a lot of clean up time. For older children, they can easily reach for their drinks when in their car seat so you can focus on driving and not have to worry about them. You can get one from Babydash here.

 

3. Seat belt shoulder pads

These shoulder pads are not just cute but also serves a very important function for your child, comfort and protection. These pads can be added to existing belts to add an extra layer of comfort as sometimes seat belts can be uncomfortable for kids. Another great thing about these shoulder pads is that it doubles as a pillow for your child to lean on when sleeping so they can sleep comfortably. You can get one from Babydash here

 

4. Baby car mirror

If you drive alone with your baby, you probably would have experienced this feeling of worry if your baby is doing okay. With a baby car mirror you won’t have to worry about your child anymore as you can see from the reflection of the mirror how your child is doing at the back . If your baby needs to be attended you can know immediately when to stop the car to This is essential to parents who wish to keep a close eye on their children while still being able to drive safely as always turning your head to the back may not be the safest thing to do on the road. You can grab a mirror here

 

5. Portable fan

Sometimes it gets really hot in the car and that can make your child feel really uncomfortable. I’m pretty sure as parents we would not like a car ride where your child is complaining and crying for the whole journey and that is why having a portable fan is vital for any car journey. This fan from Babydash has a clip that you can clip onto any car seat. If you are using an infant car seat you can clip onto it and keep your child cool when carrying your child outside your car. Keeping your child cool is important, especially in Malaysia where its very very hot.

A car seat can only provide safety and comfort for your child, but there are other factors that make car rides a hassle that can be solved through different accessories. Car rides can be pleasant for you and your child if you have the necessary items in your hands. If you don’t have the items you can always buy it on Babydash. Be sure to check out the 12.12 promotion that is coming really soon. 

 

Types of car seats and why it’s important to choose the right one

Original Author: Timothy Wee

Transporting infants and babies in cars is something that cannot be avoided and we as parents are lucky as there are many different types of car seats to choose from. With so many choices at our fingertips we often feel like it’s overwhelming choosing the correct car seat for our child. In this blog I would like to share the different types of car seats available on the market and why choosing the correct one is important.

1. Infant Car Seat

0e4895a65d0b56f9f972477b2154cb031539168336-nm_1024x1024

The infant car seat is ideal for those ages from 0-2 years old or until the baby reaches the weight limit of the seat. The car seat is also designed to be able to act as a carrier where you can carry your child outside the car. Infant car seats will not be able to carry children who pass the weight and age limit of the car seat so be sure to get a new one when your child gets older. You can buy one here. 

2. Convertible Car Seat

ALD1012-700x700

If you’re someone who wants to get more out of your car seat, a convertible car seat would be ideal for you. A convertible car seat can support children from 0-3 years old for rear facing position but front facing after 3 years old. As parents you do not need to buy a new car seat as the baby grows and can reuse the same one. On the down side, a convertible car seat isn’t as portable as an infant car seat and cannot be used as a baby carrier. A convertible car seat is also more bulky and bigger but some may see it as a good thing as it adds extra protection. You can buy one here.

3. 3-in-1 Car Seat

A 3-in-1 car seat is similar to a convertible one but it also has a booster seat functionality. Those of you who would opt for a 3-in-1 car seat will be able to use this seat as your child grows and do not need to buy a new one, perfect for those looking to save some money. You can buy one here.

4. Booster Car Seat

The Booster Car Seat is ideal for children who are old enough to not need the extra bells and whistles of the other 3 car seats. The car seat comes forward facing only and the minimum weight of children for this car seat is around 13-18 kg depending on the model. This kind of car seat should not be bought buy parents with new born babies as it does not come with extra support that infants require. This kind of car seat can help children transition from a car seat to sitting without one. Depending on the model it may come with its own belt but children can also use the car’s safety belt depending on their preference. You can buy one here.

Importance of choosing the type of car seat

Each type of car seat comes with its own set of pros and cons that depend on the stage of growth of your child. As parents we must choose wisely which car seat is ideal for your child as car seats are important when transporting children. Child safety is important and choosing a car seat that provides the optimum safety for your child. Using infant car seats on heavier children may not be ideal as it does not provide the support and protection an older child needs. Moreover, children needs to feel comfortable in their car seat so they don’t feel annoyed and cry for your whole 4 hour journey.

If you’re looking for new car seats Babydash is having a KAW-KAW promotion on car seats of different prices from the 2nd to 31st December 2019. There are some good discounts on a range of car seats, be sure to check it out.
