When the child is small, the weight of his head is proportionally heavier than the one of an adult. As a result, when asleep in the car seat, it is therefore not unusual that his head leaning forward . This does not affect the safety of your child . In case of strong brake or accidents , his head will naturally be repositioned at the bottom of the headrest, fully protecting his head and neck. However, you may find this situation uncomfortable for your child. To minimize this effect , we recommend you to recline the car seat to the maximum , an /or in the case it’s a rearward facing car seat with a reducer, to keep the reducer cushion as long as possible.
Please note this situation is particularly related to the vehicle seat recline angle . The more the seat of your vehicle is deep (eg bucket seats) , the more this effect is enhanced. If your vehicle have adjustable backrest angle, we also recommend that you adjust the angle of the vehicle seat to improve your child’s comfort.
