Among parents there is a widespread misconception that breast of the child should be transported only on the hands. Of course, the child feels protected, but if something goes unexpected, mom just can't keep the baby. In American hospitals, the administration may prohibit the carriage of a child without special cradles. We have the same responsibility for the safety of the child is solely the parents. Unfortunately, the sad statistics says that parents have to pay too dearly for his carelessness: if everyone used a special autorebel for kids, child mortality in accidents would be reduced by 70%.
If you think to buy baby first special cradle, and then the chair is too expensive – buy a combo seat. It can first be used lying down, reclining, placing his back to the movement, and then when the child grows up a bit, install it in the normal sitting direction. However, in no case do not take a regular chair with an expectation for growth. Until the child grows to the age for which it is intended, he will be in danger.
Transportation of the child from birth special equipment automatically eliminates the problem of habituation to the chair. Children 2-3 years old who never went to a chair, sit in it will be very problematic. In this case, you need to gradually accustom to sitting in it. Use it at home: let the child sits on it while eating, watching TV and so on.
When a child is sitting in the chair – it is important to occupy and distract. Try to choose the shortest routes, the child is not tired and began vrednichat, it is sure to buckle up yourself – it will be a very strong argument for the childnot to whine about the belts.
To teach the child to follow the rules, they do not disturb. About the belt we have already spoken. The same applies to all other rules. Exceptions should not be. If the baby is tired and zavratnica – in any case do not detach nor his, nor his seatbelt while driving. It is better to stop, get out of the car, stretch and then go on, once again strapped.
Don't let the kid stick his hand out the window. With his hand the window can be opened only by a little. Many tragic cases occurs for the reason that the baby shoots out the window first the handle and then the head.
Carry the child always in the rear seat. It is the most safe.
Do not leave your baby in a closed car one under any pretext, even if you killed the engine and opened all the Windows. The temperature in the cabin, especially in summer, is much higher than on the street. Even 5 minutes of stay of the child in the overheated area will be more than enough, that he was seized with a severe heat stroke.
Never carry child on his hands, handcuffing him a common belt. In case of a collision you just crush him with his weight.
Advice 2: How to carry baby in the front seat
Transporting children in the front seat of the car raises many questions and disputes. According to the "Rules of the road"clause 22.9 the transportation of children to 12-summer age in the vehicles must only be carried out using special child restraints - car seats. The main importance here are the age, height and weight of the child. These indicators divide the children into groups, each of which has its own adaptations for transport in the car. Thus, even the rules will not always guarantee the safety of the child in the car.
The rules do not prohibit the carrying of a child in the front seat of the car in the seat corresponding to his age group. Remember this, in the back seat still safer. In any case, do not install the seat in the front seat of a car equipped with an airbag. Though this item and not in the rules, in the car, there are always caveats. When triggered, the airbag is revealed with a speed of over 300km/h and leaves bruises and even injuries on the body of an adult. For the child is facing very serious injuries, even death.
Children zero group (up to 10 kg, from birth to 6-9 months) should be transported in the front seat in the car seat, installed against the direction of motion. This will provide greater protection for the head, neck and back of the child. Chair it should be push as far as possible from the dashboard. To translate in a chair, set on a course of movement, should only be at the maximum stipulated weight when the baby's head is above the back seat.
The following group 1 includes children weighing from 9 kg to 18 kg and aged from 9 months to 4 years. These chairs are set on a course of movement of the machine both on front and rear seats.
The older children fall under group 2 (15 to 25 kilos - approximately 4 to 6 years) and 3 (22 to 36 kg age 6-11 years). Car seats these groups hold the baby with the regular car seat belts. Therefore, you must carefully watch, that the belt is positioned correctly on the body of the child:- the belt should be tight;- diagonal belt must pass through the middle of the shoulder without touching the face and neck; the lower strap should be place on the chest, not the stomach.
Approximately the same scheme, there are other alternative restraints, such as boosters and adapters for belts. To transport children in the front seat it is recommended to use the booster with bracket to the main seat. Although the regulation is not prohibited to use other devices, all other devices do not provide sufficient security and are recommended only for use on the rear seats.
The airbag might work, even if it is turned off and the service station
