    Questions and Answers About Infant Car Seat

    Questions and Answers About Infant Car Seat

     What is an infant car seat?

    As the name suggests, an infant car seat is a cushioned bucket seat that is meant for young children who are too short to be secured by the usual seat belts. It is designed to provide all necessary protection to the fragile body of babies in times of car accidents. Infant car seats are also referred as child restraints.

     

    What are the rules and regulations on infant car seat?

    Since 1 January 2012, it is the height and not the age of the child that determine if a child seat is required.

    Accordingly to Road Traffic Act on Road Traffic (Motor Vehicles, Wearing of Seat Belts) Rules 2011 Section 8, any child who is “below 1.35 metres in height” is required to be properly secured by “an approved child restraint appropriate for a person of that height and weight”.

     

    What is so important about putting my child in a child car seat?

    Traffic rules and penalties aside, it is really about the safety of the child that is the utmost important reason why a child should be properly secured in a suitable infant car seat.

    All approved infant car seats are installed with energy-absorbing foam that helps to protect your child during any accident by absorbing the crash force. A child is very fragile and vulnerable to any strong impact, hence should always be protected in an approved infant car seat.

     

    Should the car seat be facing the rear or front?

    The safest position for the car seat is always rear-facing.

    Secure your child in a rear-facing car seat until the height or weight has reached the limit of the seat.  Car seat placed in the rear facing position provide the best protection for your child and prevent any injuries to his head, neck and spine in the event of a crash.  

     

    What is an ISOFIX?

    The ISOFIX (International Standards Organisation FIX) is an international standard system that allows you to fit an infant car seat directly into the car without using a seat belt.  It is also called LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) in the United States.

     

    Only cars that were manufactured after 2006 are installed with the ISOFIX fittings, which are the two metal bars fixed underneath your car seats. If you are unsure if your car comes with an ISOFIX fittings, always check with your car dealer or manufacturer. 

    On the other hand, infant car seats which are compatible with ISOFIX will come with an ISOFIX base, which has two connectors at the back of the base to attach and lock onto the metal bars of your car.

    How to wash your infant car seat

    How to wash your infant car seat

    It is always good to wash your infant car seat regularly so as to provide a high hygiene environment for your baby and prevent germs from spreading. Furthermore, washing a car seat is not as exhausting as what you might first imagine it to be because the majority of car seat covers can be washed by machine.   

    Here is a step-by-step guide:

    Step 1: Remove all covers and accessories

    Check your user manual to on the correct way to remove all the car seat accessories and cover. If you have lost your user manual, you may download it from your manufacturer's website.


    User guides are always available for download at Stokke's official website

    Step 2: Wash the covers accordingly

    Refer to the washing label tagged to the car seat cover for washing instructions,  and they are usually located under the covers.

    As indicated on the washing label of Stokke iZi Sleep X3 over here, the covers can be machine washed at a maximum of 40°C/104°F. Do not tumble dry, and let it drip dry instead.    

    Please use mild detergent/baby laundry detergent for the wash, we have also selected "Easy Care" function on our washing machine for a more delicate wash. 

     Step 3: Inspect your infant car seat

    While all the covers are washing or drying, this is the best time to inspect your infant car seat for any defect. Infant car seat is meant to be a protection for your baby in the event of accidents, ensuring that all functions are working properly can safeguard your baby from any injury. 

    Check that all small parts are in good working condition and most importantly check that your Energy Absorbing Foam (EAF) is intact. EAF is the large piece of white foam underneath the seat cover, it is meant to absorb the impact during car accident hence minimising injury to the baby. 

    *If you are using one passed down from your friends, please ensure to have the EAF check prior to use.

    Checking on the Energy Absorbing Foam.

    Step 4: Wipe the car seat

    For those that cannot be washed in the machine, such as the seat buckle and seat body, you may use a baby wipe to clean them. 

    Step 5: Refit the cover and accessories

    Refit all the covers according to the user manual and store your car seat in a cool area or you may start installing it in your car for next use!
