Default Re: "Child Seat" for Babies & Kids

Hi,

I went with the Chicco Eletta for my 4 month old daughter. While I seat is fixed well, there is a bit of movement sideways if I shake it. Also, in the back seat of my swift, the chair base is extending beyond the seat. Even though my daughter is comfortable (have taken her on 2 short rides in the city), I am not entirely sure if the seat is correctly fitted and it extending beyond the car seat doesnt cause problem.

Any views?

About the extension beyond your car seat's edge, perhaps this video might be of help (haven't watched it myself):



Cheers,
Vikram

Isn't the seat too upright? Maybe the image shows it to be upright. I mean an infant cannot sit up so the weight should be mainly on back, something like sitting on an easy chair. Here is the seat I'm using. I don't remember the name of company, I guess it's Graco. It was brought from US for my niece. Now has been passed on to my son.

Regarding the correct positioning, just see if there is a correct position marker on the seat that would let you know if the inclination is correct. Something like this -

There is some lateral/ sideways movement but if seatbelts are tightened, it is minimal. I guess the movement would be lesser or no movement in case of Isofix mounts. My car (Brezza 2016) has no Isofix so can't exactly comment on it.

My son is nearing 11 months now and whenever he sits in his seat, he'll catch the belt and try to latch it. A child if conditioned to sit in a child seat from early childhood will not be fussy about sitting in it even later on.

Got an upgrade to my son's booster seat.

The foam of the seat was too hard for long journeys. Hence I got him a 3 inch thick foam pad made for his car seat. It's held together by velcro at the bottom.

I also got some foam added to the armrests as well.

Hopefully he likes it
