Car Seat Accessories: More than Just Keeping Your Child Safe
When you have a little one strapped at the back of the car, they’re not only an extra passenger, but also a temperamental troublemaker. It often means messy seats, toys strewn all over, and most definitely, cranky little ones that will make sure you know that they are bored the moment you put the gear in drive.
Car seat accessories help make travelling easier, by keeping the little ones happy, and your car clean.
Frequently Asked Questions About Car Seat Accessories
What is an important car seat accessory to buy for my kid?
Your child’s safety is of utmost priority, and your car seat accessories should reflect that. Pick out a reliable car seat that is appropriate for your baby’s age and weight. If you have an existing baby carrier, ensure that the car seat base is compatible with your carrier. Take into consideration their in-built safety features and opt for one with accurate and effortless installation.
When can my child switch to a regular seatbelt?
Singapore law requires anyone below the height of 1.35m to be secured in an appropriate booster seat, car seat, adjustable seat belt, or other suitable child restraint system. Once your child is 1.35m or taller, they will need to wear a regular seatbelt regardless of age. Failure to comply with this can result in a fine and demerit points for the driver. When your child switches to a regular seatbelt, ensure that the lap belt fits comfortably across their thighs and the shoulder strap fits across their chest and shoulder.
