Our Suggestion: Damage to a vehicle seat from a properly used child restraint is rare.  Dents in upholstery or leather pop out over time. If you are concerned about mess, a thin receiving blanket can keep your vehicle seat free of crumbs and spills.  An old nursing cover or similar fabric, hung from the head restraint, but not coming between the child restraint and the seat back, can protect your vehicle seat back from muddy rear facing shoes.  Of course, you could always limit food and beverage in the vehicle and remove shoes as well. If you feel you must have something to protect your seat, some manufacturers allow the use of their brand of seat protector to be used with their restraints. Usually, a thin towel or receiving blanket can also be used, if allowed by the manufacturer of the child restraint, provided it doesn’t interfere with the installation of the restraint or base.  Check your manual or call your manufacturer to confirm what is allowed.  We highly encourage you to check that it does not interfere with installation before you decide to use it.  Install your seat with the pad in place, making sure there is less than one inch of movement at the belt path.  If using LATCH, undo one side, remove the pad, reconnect the LATCH strap and check for movement.  If using the vehicle belt, mark the latch plate position with chalk or use a locking clip to hold the belt, remove the pad, and buckle the belt. If you no longer have an acceptable install, discontinue use of the seat protector and try one of the options listed above. Check out our full article on seat protectors and car seats.

Ergonomic. ___ ___ Babies’ natural and recommended positions are either lying flat on a solid surface or in their parents’ arms. In these positions, a baby’s body is free to move, thus encouraging its development. However, in today’s world families are much more “on-the-go”, requiring parents to secure, and often restrain, their baby when in transit. Doona™ was designed with this primary goal in mind: to provide parents like you with a safe and practical solution for carrying your baby. Global Engineering, Safety and Medical experts spent the last several years developing Doona™. Their key focus was ensuring that your baby is safe and comfortable both inside and outside of the car. Naturally, Doona™ was designed to achieve maximal protection for the baby in the car. However, due to the nature of the product, and inspired by the position of a baby in its mother’s arms, Doona™, and its unique Newborn Insert, were designed to fully support the baby even when used outside of the car. The baby’s position in the Doona™ allows it to interact freely and maintain direct eye contact, thus facilitating its development. As with any stroller, car seat or other such device, medical professionals agree that a baby should not be restrained for long periods of time. Therefore, Simple Parenting recommends not to keep your baby restrained in the Doona™ for longer than required. ___

No. Never place a child seat rear facing in a front passenger seat that has an airbag, unless the airbag is off. If you need to place the child seat in the front seat, make sure the airbag is turned off and move the vehicle seat as far back as possible. DEATH OR SERIOUS INJURY can occur if an airbag contacts the seat. Always refer to the vehicle owners manual when installing a child restraint.

For an infant that is rear facing, the harness straps should be even with or just below the baby’s shoulders. If the harness is above the baby’s shoulders with the straps in the lowest position, do not use the car seat until the baby grows into it.

Our Suggestion: If your child cannot sit upright during car rides, consider putting them back in a harnessed car seat or in a high back booster if they fit within the height and weight requirements, particularly on long car rides when they may fall asleep. You can teach your child to look at the ceiling if they are feeling sleepy. Put a sticker on the ceiling of the car to remind them to look up. Try not to travel at times your child is likely to fall asleep.

Safety Concern: A seat protector comes between your vehicle seat and your child restraint.  Some have a  “grippy”  texture or are very firm.  These can disguise a loose install, or introduce slack into the belt if the protector shifts during a crash. It is best to never use anything between the vehicle seat and the child restraint. This is a firm seat protector mat that has a “grippy”  surface, making it difficult or near impossible to install a restraint over it.

Wipe plastic, vinyl, and metal parts with a damp sponge or soft cloth. For fabrics, use cool water with a mild soap, rinse with clean water, and air dry. The harness system should be cleaned with mild soap and water and allowed to air dry. Wipe the outside of the buckle with a damp cloth. Do not lubricate the buckle or immerse in water. Do not use bleach or harsh chemicals on your car seat and do not dry clean. Use of cleaning agents such as these can damage your car seat and cause deterioration of the materials.

When your “mini me” has grown to approximately 11 lbs. Essentially, infant inserts can be used as long as needed- so that little riders can fit snuggly into the seat (which is what it is meant for, to improve the comfort and sitting position of smaller babies).

Safety Concern: The Cardiff Booster Seat Headrest / Travel Headrest can potentially interfere with active head restraints and/or side impact air curtains in the event of a crash. This means users could sustain head or neck injuries in a crash. When installed on a vehicle head restraint, the Cardiff Booster Seat Headrest forces the vehicle headrest to be higher than the lowest position. For smaller riders, this could mean less than ideal placement of a head restraint. Additionally, smaller riders leaning to the side to use the Cardiff Headrest may end up out of position for adequate seat belt protection.

Our Suggestion: In cases where no approved option is available, using tightly rolled receiving blankets alongside (not over the top) of your infant, clear of the harness, is a safe method to give additional support when needed. Below, we see Freya again, with rolled blankets on either side of her body to provide additional support. Freya is now safe and supported!

Many products have a label that says “Crash Tested!” and even add “to FMVSS standards” on the box or in the product manual, but this is misleading since there is nothing in FMVSS that covers these items; hence the term “non-regulated.” There is no way to know how a mirror, harness pads, seat protector, or anything else that doesn’t come with the seat will change how it performs during a crash. There’s no crash test performance standard or benchmark for testing, so while companies do claim to test items like harness pads or inserts, we just don’t know which seats are being tested with which items, or how, and what the results of the tests were. We do know that any item which comes with your restraint or is approved for use by the manufacturer with your restraint has been tested with it, and is safe to use when used properly. There are, of course, gray areas and we wish to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision. Below we have listed some of the most common non-regulated products, concerns they may raise, and our recommendations for safe alternatives when applicable.
