Baskets and carrycots used for new born babies must be installed on the back seat in a transverse position ensuring the baby’s head points to the interior of the vehicle. It is important that you consult the owner’s manual for the vehicle in question. In this type of baby seat, the baby is lying down in a very natural position. Some of these seats are only secured by the seatbelt fixed over their abdomen so in the case of a lateral collision they are less anchored. There are however various models of carrycots and harnesses on the market in the form of a “Y” which provide a notable increase in protection in a lateral collision.

Baby seats also known as “maxi-cosi”. This type allows you to carry the baby in either the front or the back of the car, in the latter case, the changes to the regulations effective since October 1 must always be observed, and the airbag must be disabled. The seat should always be backward facing and fixed to the car using the ISOFIX system. 

Important: If the baby is carried in the front of the vehicle the airbag must be disconnected.

This type of seat is supports the child using a harness and is then anchored to the vehicle using the car seatbelt or the ISOFIX system. Some seats allow fixing facing in both directions. The harness or fixing straps must be adjusted as the child grows to ensure a snug fit.

Important: in a very young child the weight of the head is greater with respect to the body. Also, the neck is not fully formed. For these reasons it is recommended that at all times (without allowing the seat to become too small) the use of the backward facing method.

From 19 a 25 kg

This consists of a cushion with a support, allowing the use of the car seatbelt as a restraining system from 3 points within the vehicle. In this group it is the car seatbelt that supports the child who can then travel in either front or back seats (please remember the changes to the regulations on the use and installation of child car seats and don't forget to disable the front airbag in the front passenger's seat) facing forward. This class of car seat lifts the child up so that the car seatbelt may be adjusted correctly to pass over the most resistant parts of the child’s anatomy (the hips, the sternum and collarbone).

Group III

Group III

From 22 a 36 kg

This booster cushion raises the child so it can use a three-point seat belt and can be positioned in either the front or the back seats (don't forget the changes in the law on the use and installation of child seats), always facing the direction of travel.

  • If you want a child seat that will also protect the child in the event of side impacts, you should use a seat that has a backrest and sufficiently big side 'wings' that are also well padded.

You should also bear in mind the changes to the official certification that will be coming into force soon.

Finally, the backrest can help to ensure that the upper strap of the seat belt fits better (which should lie between the neck and the shoulder, never over the neck). Some booster seats in Group III also have the ISOFIX system which helps to fit and lock the seat into position more easily on the car seat.
