What is a baby seat?
A baby seat, also known as a car seat or baby safe, is the most common way of safely transporting a newborn in the car. There are many different bowls and models and it is worth taking a closer look at the options available. The manufacturer Cybex alone has a large selection of models available for you.
But where exactly are the differences between the baby seats?
A baby seat is made up of different parts. The shell body, the padded lying surface with belt system, the height-adjustable headrest, the sun canopy and the roll bar and carry handle. There are bowls with a solid body. Your child can only lie in one position in them. Shells with a flexible body allow you to set a flat position outside of the car in addition to the normal lying position. The trays also differed according to the safety standards for which they were tested. Seats that are labeled with the so-called i-size standards are currently considered to be the safest baby seats.
Of course, a baby seat can also be used outside the car. For example, it can be used on the handle for easy transport of your child. Or simply fixed on a stroller frame with the appropriate adapters and used as a bathtub replacement.
In the car, an Isofix base station makes it easier to handle the tray. Further information on the base station and the various shell and seat models can be found below.
