Safety tips

The world is waiting for you! People to see, places to go, things to see. Travelling with your child will always be an adventure, so follow these key safety tips, and then get ready to hit the road.

Taking your child out in the car is a great shared experience, whether you’re just popping out to the park or going further afield. Naturally, you want the reassurance that your child will travel safely and happily and a properly fitted car seat will be your first priority.

Optimal safety
Always choose a safe car seat made by a reputable manufacturer, and we don't recommend to buy second-hand as the seat may be damaged and/or incomplete even if it looks brand new. For optimal safety, choose a car seat with extra side protection.

Also, make sure you install the car seat properly and that it is the right size for your child. Buy from a trusted shop and ask the salesperson’s advice. If you fit the car seat to the front seat of your car, it’s important to always turn off the airbags and put the seat of the car in the most rearward position. 

Make travelling fun
Take regular breaks if you’re on a long journey – it’s important for you and your child to stretch your legs, get some fresh air and stay mobile! Take warm covers too so your child can take a nap – most car seats have a resting position.

Don’t forget to have some travel games planned to help pass the time on longer trips – even simple games such as I Spy will keep kids happy. You can also sing songs with them, play music or talking book CDs, and also make sure they have their favourite toy or book with them. Healthy snacks and drinks are a good idea too.

When you get there…
Make sure you have suitable outdoor clothes ready for your child, sun protection if it’s hot, a raincover when it rains of a footmuff when it's cold.
