Nuna is supporting the awareness week, running from 19-25 November, 2023, with its Car Seat Safety Checklist.
Nuna’s new checklist is designed to help demystify the car seat fitting process and keep children as safe as possible on the road.
Nuna’s range of car seats are designed to fit children from birth up to 12 years-old. The seats offer innovative material, steel strength technology and ultra resilient materials.
The checklist is as follows:
C – Choose the right seat – by law, the seat you buy needs to meet EU standards and be in the correct category seat for your child’s age and size.
A – Assess the harness tension – if you can lift the shoulder strap or pinch the belt into a loop it’s not tight enough.
R – Remember rearward seats are the safest – it is recommended that a child stays in a rear-facing seat until they are 4 years old or weigh at least 18.5g.
S – Save lives – always check the car seat before you travel.
E – Ensure the correct harness height – harness should be just below child’s shoulder in rearward facing seats and slightly above in forward-facing seats.
A – Assess the headrest height – always ensure the child’s head is within the confines of the headrest.
T – Take off winter coats – before buckling up or they can prevent the straps being fastened securely.
S – Secure your booster seat – to keep you safe too never leave an empty booster seat unfastened behind you.
A – Adjust the harness for every journey – lengthen the harness before clicking the release button so it’s easier to get your little one in and out.
F – Fit your car seat properly – if you’re buying the car seat in-store then take your car and get a trained member of staff to fit it for you.
E – Ensure the car seat belt is tight – don’t forget to check it daily. You know the seat is tight enough when you flick it and it makes a noise.
T – Think about getting a mirror – fix it to the headrest of the rear seat so you can see your little one and vice-versa.
Y – You can keep your family safe – by following these simple tips….
