Tips for Choosing a Car Seat

Portability 

Do you have your own car, or will you be using different vehicles including ride-hailing services such as GrabCar? If you are commuting with your child, then one of the top considerations is the weight and portability of your car seat. Regular car seats usually weigh 8-10 kgs which are not really easy to lug around thus, you might want to consider the ones that are ultra-lightweight such as the Urban Kanga portable car seat or the mifold Grab-and-Go Booster Seat.

Five-point vs Three-point Harness System

A five-point harness is a form of seat belt containing five straps that are mounted to the car frame. 2 of which are around the child’s shoulders, one between his legs and 2 belts holds the hips. The three-point harness, on the other hand, has shoulder straps and one between the legs and no straps on the child’s hips. 

According to experts, children should remain in the rear-facing position for as long as they could (based on the set limits) since this is considered the safest way to ride. By age 4 to 7, they are now transitioned to a forward-facing position and the big question comes up, “Should you opt for a five-point or three-point harness system?”

Generally, the five-point harness is recommended until the child reaches the top height or weight limit before transitioning to a three-point harness system. The lack of straps on the child’s hips may cause the child to be ejected from the car seat during accidents and thus, it is ideal to use the five-point harness system for as long as possible.
