Preparing The Car For Your Baby

2013-02-22 12:43:00 +0530

Just like you painted the nursery and baby-proofed the house, you need to prepare the car for your baby. Here's how to do it

Your little one might grow up to be another Schumacher or Vettel, but the training doesn't need to begin during infancy. A few things you need to keep in mind while childproofing your car:

1.  Car seat:

Buy a car seat for your baby that fits him snugly. While this might mean that you would have to change the seat a little sooner than anticipated, it's a cost worth bearing. Read the manual and go through any videos on assembling/ dismantling the seat. Also buy a 'baby on board' sticker for the windshield.

2.  Position:

Place the child's seat on the back seat of your car. In case of a three-sectioned car, the middle position suits the best, so that kids don't play with locks and buttons.

3.  Possible hazards:

Make sure you check the backseat and side pouches for any small, sharp objects that could be dangerous. Small toys, liquids like car cleaners or windshield wiper fluids, etc. should be kept in the front cabinets.

4.  Obey rules:

Most importantly obey traffic rules and be a safe driver.
