Thus, you can choose from a wide range of ultra-soft and cuddly inserts that provide your baby with all the support they need when being in the infant car seat. Made from breathable materials, these supports are usually adjustable as to get a perfect, customised fit. Furthermore, the are also sunshades, which can be attached to the window and protect your little passenger from harmful UV rays. In addition to this, there are also adjustable safety mirrors with which you can always keep an eye on your baby and vice versa. Storage compartments and bags included in car seat protectors, and hanging organisers are ideal for keeping your car clean and tidy. Removable car seat protectors protect the car’s seats from dirt, abrasion and little mishaps. Also, you can change the visual appearance of your infant car seat or child car seat, and add a more personal touch by equipping it with stylish covers. These allow a quick and easy cleaning, and – depending on the season and its features, offer your child a warm or cool place in the car.
When choosing certain accessories, however, you should pay attention to the manufacturer's instructions with regard to the compatibility with an infant car seat or child car seat. Child safety seats and infant car seats are crash tested in the manner in which they are to be used. Adding accessories such as trays, car seat protectors or seat covers that have not been approved by the manufacturer for a particular child car seat can compromise the safety of the seat and, in the event of an accident, can be an additional source of danger to your child. This applies in particular to bases, summer and winter covers, and adapters. No matter which accessory you purchase for the child car seat, the safety of your child should always have the highest priority. Make sure before each purchase on whether the accessory is also approved for your child car seat or is suitable for it, respectively.
When your little passenger is sitting in the infant car seat or in the child car seat and is fastened securely, your trip can begin. But how can you make the car ride even more enjoyable on a sunny day for your child, or how can you make sure that you do not have to turn around all the time to keep an eye on them?
A sunshade or sun visor provides your baby with optimum sun protection in the car. While the glass of the car window effectively blocks UVB rays, it lets dangerous UVA rays get through. Most sun visors adhere easily to the windows of your car as they come with suction cups and thus, optimally protect your little passenger on hot days. In addition to this, a sunshade also contributes to the well-being of your child. Since your little passenger is travelling in a soft and padded car seat, the seat or cover can often get very hot in direct sunlight. When your baby is exposed to this sunlight, the temperature can be increased even further. A well-chosen protective sun visor blocks direct sunlight and keeps some of the heat away from your little one. Also keep in mind that a sunshade or sun visor is a useful tool even on sunny winter days. The snow reflects a large part of the sunlight, which means that your child can be dazzled while riding in your car. In addition to this, you should never underestimate the danger that can come from the harmful sun rays in winter.
All parents know that babies and children can become fidgety and restless while being in a car. Sometimes, you as a mom or dad might already feel a little insecure when it suddenly becomes very quiet in the back seat. Also, babies in infant car seats and younger children usually travel in a rear-facing mode which makes it more difficult for mom and dad to keep an eye on them. Attempting to check and comfort your little passenger without eye contact can affect your concentration and thus the quality of your driving significantly. This can endanger you, your child and other road users. However, there is a remedy for it: a safety or backseat mirror. With this you can easily keep an eye on your little one from the front seat. Furthermore, a safety mirror stands out as a useful companion even if a child is already travelling in a forward-facing mode, which is why many parents prefer to purchase such an additional mirror. This safety mirror is to be attached to the windshield and not on the headrest of the car’s backseat, and works very much like a regular backseat mirror. It is adjusted as to have a clear view towards your child.
There are many different safety or backseat mirrors on the market. It is important that you invest in the right one and to install it correctly in the car as to prevent it from being a source of danger in the event of an accident.
Another useful accessory is a kick-proof cover for your car seats. Anyone with children knows that it doesn’t take long until the car gets dirty. A kick-proof cover or car seat protector makes cleaning the car a lot easier and also contributes to a longer service life of your car seats. In this segment, you can choose between kick-proof covers for the back of your front seats or else car seat protectors that can be put underneath your child’s car seat. The former prevents small feet from contaminating the back of your front seats, while the latter protects the upholstery of the backseat in the car from wearing off, getting dirty or the like.
Some manufacturers, such as Britax-Römer or BeSafe, also offer full-fledged safety kits that include car seat protectors, safety mirrors, and sunshades for the windows, so that you are well-equipped for any occasion.
