Infant carriers and child car seats ensure that children can be transported safely by car. They also offer numerous other advantages, such as practicality and comfort. It is therefore important to give sufficient thought to the choice of model. More information >
Svenja and Marco are the proud first-time parents of little Max. Svenja’s mother can hardly wait to hold her first grandson in her arms. Svenja and Marco met during their student days in Freiburg and don’t want to move away from their sheltered surroundings now that they have a little family. Svenja’s mother lives in the banking metropolis of Frankfurt am Main and has only limited mobility. It’s not long before the decision is made to drive to Max’ grandma’s place. As the young family needs a child car seat to transport little Max safely, Marco sets off with great enthusiasm in search of a suitable model.
Marco initially feels overwhelmed by the multitude of different car seat models. Naturally, he aims to find a seat well suited to his son’s needs. He discovers that manufacturers like Maxi-Cosi and Römer divide their models into groups by age, size and body weight. Child car seats in the Group 0+ are suitable for Max up to the age of 15 months, or until he weighs up to around 13 kg or measures 105 cm in height, whichever comes first. Svenja tells Marco she would like an infant carrier which she can use even when she’s not in the car and which also complies with all the safety criteria for modern child car seats. Marco confirms that most infant carriers made by Maxi-Cosi and BritaxRömer can be installed in the car with a single click (thanks to the ISOFIX system) and that they face backwards. This is important, as according to the European I-Size Directive, which has been in force since 2013 in addition to the existing R44/04 standard, Max should be transported in a rear-facing car seat until the age of 15 months for his own safety. However, parents who already own a child car seat belonging to the R44/04 Group are not required to change over to a new seat. Svenja is pleased when Marco shows her our infant carriers with practical travel system; in no time at all, these infant carriers can be removed from the car and attached to a stroller frame. The special side padding in the infant carrier, designed to protect Max’ head in the event of side impact, also meets with Svenja’s approval.
After continuing their search, Svenja and Marco come to the conclusion that there’s no such thing as a “one suits all” child car seat. In actual fact, there are a variety of models on the market to cater for differing requirements.
