Fitting a car seat can be a daunting experience, especially if you are a new parent. You are so focused on your child’s safety in those first few months, and anything that would make the process simpler and give you additional peace of mind will certainly help you to travel with much less stress and anxiety. That’s where a car seat base comes in.
So how does a car seat base work? The car seat stand fits securely to the passenger seat and stays put, even when you remove the car seat. So you only need to fit it once, and all you need to do after that is make sure that your baby’s car seat clicks securely into the base before you set off on your travels. So making sure the seat is secure takes seconds – and time is precious when you have a little one in tow!
A lot of parents wonder what is the purpose of a car seat base, and many wonder – do you even need a base for a car seat? If you want to make the process of fitting your seat much more straightforward, yes. Many parents find that theirs has become an invaluable part of their set up, and wouldn’t travel without it.
It’s important that you buy the right car seat for your vehicle. An ISOFIX car seat base is slightly different in that it will fit directly into your car's chassis rather than on the passenger seat. Most cars that have been made since 2004 have an ISOFIX system – so be sure to double check if your vehicle has one before you buy your base seat. If you have any questions about what seats are suited to which cars, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
