The need to use car seats when transporting children under 12 years of age is enshrined in law. These devices not only ensure the safety of the child, but also allow parents to avoid penalties. There are many models of these seats on the market. They are comfortable and comfortable. However, sometimes kids are reluctant to agree to travel in them. How to accustom an obstinate baby to a car seat?
First, you need to choose the right car seat for your child, in accordance with his weight and age. Today, there are various groups of such devices on sale, from 0 to 3. In addition, a universal chair can be purchased. Such units are capable of transforming, adapting to the needs and parameters of the young "traveler", who, as a rule, grows rapidly.
When going to the store to choose a car seat, take your child with you. Let him give preference to one of the presented models. "Initiative" is usually only beneficial, and the child will proudly use the chair of his choice.
If you do not have the opportunity to take your baby with you or if he is still too small, then you should not immediately use the car seat for the child as intended. To begin with, the baby should be introduced to the new device. Put it at home. Make your favorite child more comfortable. Give him toys or organize a fun and fun game in which the new chair will be the protagonist. For example, it can be a game of astronauts or ambulance drivers. Here the interests of the child should be taken into account. If passing police cars cause genuine delight in his soul, then offer the kid to be just a policeman.
Adjust the car seat for your child. Check if the seat belts are tight, if the backrest angle and headrest height are correct. Remember, how comfortable the baby will feel in the chair directly depends on how quickly he gets used to it.
Don't go on a long journey straight away. The first ride should not be more than 30 minutes. You can even just ride around yards. This will be a kind of "test" for the child's endurance and sympathy for the newly purchased car seat.
