Best Baby Car Seats In India

As you have opened this page, I can be fairly certain that you are considering to buy a car seat for your baby. I really appreciate the thought because it means you give priority to your baby’s safety. You don’t have the misconception that baby car seats are for use abroad and not a necessity on Indian roads while the fact remains that if an accident occurs with an unrestrained baby in a car, then speeding at even 40 Kmph may end up being fatal for the baby.

How to choose baby car seat?

Now, when it comes to choosing a baby car seat, you have several options to go by. Either you can choose an infant car seat till the baby is about one year to fifteen months old (usually up to 13kg) and then transition to a convertible car seat after the baby turns one. Once the baby outgrows the convertible car seat (usually baby is about 4 years or 20kg and above) you use a booster seat till the child is about 7 years.

When you choose to buy an infant seat and then transition to a convertible baby seat, you will definitely have to shell out more money. But the advantage is that if your baby sleeps in the infant seat, you can easily carry the seat home without disturbing his/her sleep. So if your little one’s sleep is precious, buy an infant car seat for the first year and then move him/her to a convertible baby seat. Optionally, you can get a travel system, which comes with an infant car seat that can be snapped on to the stroller. That way, it’s a lot easier to carry your sleeping baby when you go for shopping or an evening stroll. If your baby is not asleep, you can use just the stroller without attaching the infant seat to it.

The next option is to buy a convertible car seat that can be used from newborn days. This way, you don’t have to spend anything on an infant car seat. But you won’t be able to carry the car seat around like an infant car seat.

Whatever option you choose, it’s very important to learn to install the car seat properly, failing which the purpose of a baby car seat is not met. Take a look at the video below to have a proper idea on how to install a baby car seat.

Tip: An installed baby car seat shouldn’t move more than one inch side-to-side or forward and backward

Some other important tips while using baby car seat

  • Always install the car seat in the rear seats of the car. If you are installing a booster chair in the front seat, ensure that the air bag is deactivated.
  • Till the baby is 9 kg (or till manufacturer recommended age) install the car seat facing the rear side.
  • Take frequent stops on a long journey so that baby doesn’t get tired and cranky.
  • For the baby’s safety, insist of travelling in the car seat always even if it’s a trip to nearby grocery store. Babies get used to their car seats only if they are made to sit in it from the very early days.
  • Never leave the car seat unsecured in the car.
  • Avoid using second hand car seats as it may have damages that are not visible to naked eye and it may compromise the baby’s safety.

Below are some of the best options of infant car seat and convertible baby seat that provides maximum safety and comfort for your little one.

What to look for when you buy an infant car seat?

Ideally an infant car seat should have side cushion foam that protects baby’s chest and head against side impact. The seat should be such that the newborn baby can sit in it at an angle of 30 to 45 degree for optimum protection without interfering with breathing.
