While riding in cars, it is compulsory for children to be in a child car seat. For a good reason: The belt for adults is not safe enough for the small passengers. Furthermore babies and toddlers need a special support while sitting and which is not given through the on-board seat. There are basically two options: A child car seat and infant carrier with Isofix or without. Both product classes offer enough safety for your child – if you mind several important things.

Infant carriers without Isofix

Infant carriers are suitable for transporting your baby from birth on up to a weight of approximately 13 kg. They are usually installed against the driving direction. The baby is lying half-reclined in it and will be protected in case of an impact. If you do not have Isofix in your car, the installation is carried out with the on-board belt. Most of the products have coloured marks on it to belt the infant carrier correctly.

Differences are made between infant carriers with and without base. Without a base, the seat needs to be installed against the driving direction. The three-point belt only will fix the carrier. It’s rather circuitous to trace back the belt before taking out your child in the carrier. That’s why manufacturers also offer a base along to the infant carrier. The base is fixed with the three-point belt in your car. You then simply fix the infant carrier to the base. The base is way more comfortable for parents since it can be installed in just a few steps and removed just like that.

Infant carriers without Isofix for strollers

Manufacturers such as Britax Römer offer beyond complete travel systems which do optimally adjust. A Britax Römer infant carrier is thus not only used in the car, but also for a stroller or frame by Britax Römer or compatible systems with the suitable adapter. The biggest advantage: The compact stroller frame can also be stored in small cars. The infant carrier will replace the upper part of the stroller and thanks to this click system which is very easy to handle, your child does not even recognize if he is carried in the car or stroller, which is also very helpful.

Things to consider

Protecting your child optimally, you should take the following points into consideration:

  • correct weight class: Every car seat has a certain weight class. The wrong one is a safety risk.
  • licence type: Every car seat should have the ECE R44/04 label. It will guarantee that the seat corresponds to the most current European safety requirements. Additionally it indicates the licence type (universal, semi-universal or vehicle-specifically)
  • check length of belt: Child car seats which are only fixed with the on-board belt need to be long enough. Please check out before purchasing a product!
  • look out for correct base and adapter: Manufacturers such as Britax Römer offer complete systems with base and adapter. However, they differ according to the model. Safety is only provided through a proper combination of base or adapter and car seat.
  • prefer test winner: Especially if the seat is only fixed with the on-board belt, it should meet the highest safety requirements. Manufacturers as Britax Römer or Cybex have been having top placings in tests irrespective of each other for years.

Child car seats without Isofix

Child car seats are also available with or without Isofix in stationary trade. Without the anchorage system, people refer to it as universal seats. They have the advantage that they can be used in almost every car – even vintage cars. The assumption is, however, a sufficiently long safety belt. To fix the seat, you have to guide it around the car seat. Coloured marks will help you to fix it properly. The belt has to fix both the seat and the child. An alternative are car seats from manufacturers like Cybex. Cybex seats have a big padding (a so-called impact body) which protects your child in case of impact properly. Cybex car seats without Isofix are fixed in the car with the three-point belt. The belt, however, only keeps the seat in position – the big and soft impact body will provide safety.
