Car seat for children buy: Which child seat is compulsory?

Car Seat Test A baby seat for the car is as compulsory as a child seat for children younger than 12 years old and are not yet 150 centimeters tall. The German Road Traffic Act therefore provides that you must necessarily put on the right child seat for safety of your offspring. Each country has its own rules. That in other European countries different rules apply , a glance at the following list of child seat regulations clearly shows:

  • Switzerland: Child seat up to the age of 12 or a height of 1.5 meters
  • Netherlands: Car seat up to the age of 18 or up to a height of 1.35 meters
  • Austria: 1.5 meters / 14 years
  • Denmark: Car seat up to 1.35 meters required
  • France: Up to the age of 10 years only in the back seat, with a suitable child seat also in the passenger seat
  • Italy: Up to a size of 1.5 meters
  • Czech Republic: The same rule as in Germany and in Switzerland also

A baby seat and a child seat for the car are therefore compulsory because the 3-point seatbelt in the car is designed for adults. On the other hand, it does not provide children with adequate protection in the event of an accident. Even a car child seat can not guarantee perfect protection. However, a child car seat that has been properly fastened and fits the size of your offspring will ensure that your child will take as little damage as possible.

The different child seat groups indicate which car seat is suitable for the child from which age or weight. In a child seat from 6 months, it is usually still a baby seat. After all, children at this age can not sit upright on their own. A car seat for older children will later only be a child seat upgrade. Over time, the back and armrests are all gone.

If your kids are nearly big enough to sit in the car without a child seat, a simple booster seat will be enough. It ensures that the regular 3-point harness of your car provides them with adequate protection. For a baby seat for a baby and a child seat from 1 year, uses a 5-point harness for more safety.

Child seat – what comes after the baby seat?

A baby car seat is always a baby carrier . In this baby car seat is the child, mostly halfway upright. However, there are also baby car seats that can be completely put in a lying position. These are however usually quite expensive and rather the exception than the rule.

If you want to buy a baby seat for the car, keep in mind that you may have the option of clicking this seat onto your stroller frame. This is very handy when traveling, for example. Therefore, make sure you buy the best that there is a corresponding child seat adapter for your stroller. Finally, the child seat and stroller must be compatible.

Following the infant carrier follows a child seat from 9 kilograms. This can be a Reboarder child seat, but this is not a must. What exactly characterizes a Reboarder child seat , you will learn in the next paragraph in detail. However, we can already anticipate that much: if you decide on a Reboarder child seat, this seat will be installed in your car in the opposite direction of travel, just like your child’s baby seat does.

best child seat Whether you use your infant carrier or your Reboarder in the passenger seat, it is important to check in detail, for example, this is the case with many baby carriers, but this rule only applies if the passenger airbag is switched off, so that your child can not be harmed by the airbag in the event of a possible accident. “Which child seat makes sense is explained in more detail in the following list:

  • Group 0 / 0+: Backward baby carrier
  • Group 1: Rear-facing reboarder or forward-facing child seat with 5-point belt
  • Group 2/3: Child seat with backrest and normal 3-point seat belt or seat without backrest with regular seat belt (each forward facing car seat)

But when can you use a group 1 car seat? When does a child seat in Group 2/3 make sense? And from when is a child seat of group 3 recommended? From when you should use a regular child seat after the baby car seat, depends mainly on the type of baby car seat. There are baby bowls that are only suitable for a maximum weight of 10 kilograms. You can use her up to a child one year and a height of 75 centimeters .

If the child seat belongs to Group 0+, it is allowed up to 13 kilograms. This seat can be used up to the age of 2 years and up to a height of 90 centimeters. A child seat up to 13 kilograms is therefore a 0+ car seat, while a group 1 child seat can be used as follows:

  • Mostly 9 to 18 kilograms
  • Height: between 75 and 100 centimeters
  • Age recommendation: Around 1 to 4.5 years

Whether you are looking for a child seat from 15 kilograms, a child seat from 3 or for a child seat of group 2, you should know that especially the size is important. If your child has grown very tall, you should switch to a child seat for older children sooner than the age specification of the manufacturer actually envisages. After all, the size determines the safety when dealing with a child seat.

A Group 2 child seat is mostly approved for a weight of 15 to 25 kilograms, allowing children between 3.5 and 7 years to sit in it. However, your children should not be taller than 125 centimeters. As far as the child seats of group 3 you should know that they can be charged from 25 to 36 kilograms. They are intended for children from 7 to 12 years of age who are no taller than 1.5 meters.

In addition, there are a number of child seats on the market that grow along. If you want to buy such a car seat, it is often a child seat up to 36 kilograms. This child seat can usually be adjusted in height and width. You also have the option to remove the back and armrests over time. Just like a group 3 car seat, only one seat cushion remains of the former baby car seat.

So, if you buy such a child seat for the car, you’ll have some of that over many years. Do you want to buy such a child seat, but you should know that this is usually not a reboarder. Which child seats that fit together are up for grabs for you and your offspring, is shown in the following list:

  1. Child seat of the group 0/1 or 0 + / 1: from 0 to 18 kilograms, to 5 years, the children may not be greater than 100 centimeters
  2. Child seat of group 1/2: weight between 9 and 25 kilograms, ages 1 to 7 years, body height between 72 and 125 centimeters
  3. Child seat of group 1/2/3: weight from 9 to 36 kilograms, for children from 1 to 12 years, body size from 75 to 150 centimeters
  4. Group 2/3 seat: for children weighing between 15 and 36 kilograms, between 3.5 and 12 years old and between 95 and 150 centimeters tall

Why is it worth buying a Reboarder child seat?

A Reboarder child seat – what’s that? And why is a rear-facing child seat recommended for children under 4? Now that you know which child seat is suitable for which weight, the question arises, what is it about a reboarder? Especially the orientation against the direction of travel characterizes this seat.

This orientation is based on driving safety for your kids . We have summarized the pros and cons of a Reboarder car seat for you below. These details will serve as an important decision aid in finding the right car seat for your offspring.

  • In the event of an impact, your child’s body is pressed against the seat
  • Your child’s neck is less stressed on a reboarder
  • Your child is already used to reversing from his infant carrier
  • The child can enjoy a great view through the side and rear windows as well as with the help of a rear-view mirror (this mirror also allows eye contact with the parent at the wheel)

  • There are usually higher costs for a Reboarder than for a forward-facing child seat
  • Due to the size only partially suitable for smaller cars

Car seat with Isofix or without?

Child seat comparison May you have an Isofix child seat or are you interested in a regular children’s car seat that will be installed in your vehicle using the existing 3-point belt? Of course, you can only use a child seat with Isofix if there is a special Isofix device in your car. However, this is not always the case with older vehicle models.

Meanwhile, this interface can be found in virtually all new vehicles. Isofix is ​​also a globally consistent system. This is an advantage, for example, for longer holiday trips abroad. Generally, Isofix car seats are much safer. There is a very simple reason for this.

Finally, the Isofix device ensures that the child seat connects to the body of your vehicle . The eyelets for this are located between the seat back and the seat. There, the child seat can be hooked with a little skill. In addition, the seat is fixed with a support foot. This supports the seat from below. The support foot should be placed in the footwell.

Some models of vehicles should not use an Isofix support leg. For the VW Caddy and the Ford Galaxy, the Peugeot Partner, the VW Touran and some other vehicle models is a storage compartment in the ground. That does not make the ground sturdy enough for such a support leg.

Since a support leg can not always be used, there are some Isofix child seats that have a so-called Top Tether device . This additional security is then used instead of the support foot. This third strap is hooked into the upper seating area. However, not all vehicles have the corresponding device.

Are you interested in a child seat with Isofix? Then you should just bear in mind when transporting several children that you can often install only a maximum of two Isofix child seats in the back of your vehicle. For other child seats, you may also have the option of using three child seats next to each other.

child seat test Cheap car seats that are still safe, you will dust with good luck in the sale can. Whether it should be a child seat from 4 years or a child seat up to 15 kilograms, if a cheaper child seat ago, many parents may think about the purchase of a used child seat . Not only in a child seat from 3 years you have the opportunity to save money through a growing child seat.
