What do I need before installing my baby in their own but not driving yet?”
Before installing your child in their own car seat but not able time to drive yet, you’ll need to take care of a few things.
- Choose the right car seat for your child’s size and age.
- Use our how to install a baby car seat in stroller guide as reference when installing or traveling with that infant safety device (ESD) into their first stroller, which is also known as an “infant carrier.”
- Keep them within reach at all times and never leave alone while they are sitting inside one. They should always be supervised by someone who has more than two years of experience handling children under the age of 12 months old.
When can you put a baby in a stroller without car seat?
Once your child can sit independently and has reached the age of one year old, you’ll be able to put them in a stroller without their car seat.
Always remember how they prefer to travel as an infant: with or without a car seat.
If so how should I do it?
#1. You can either place the baby’s bottom at the foot end of your open stroller while sitting on top if there is no footrest yet installed; but never base their head against anything that could potentially fall over such as tree branches or fences because that would greatly increase the risk of injury from any potential falls.
Or, you can have them seated towards the back by positioning them closer to where your handlebars would be located.
#2. For infants, buckle them in with the help of a caregiver or by placing their seat near your stroller’s handlebars and then secure it to the frame as you would normally do when using it at home. It’ll also allow you to attach other items such as toys on top while still keeping baby safely buckled in without having to rely on how tight they are strapped.
#3. For toddlers, have them seated towards the back since this is where there will be more room for their legs if need arises; but make sure that any parts touching them like handles won’t restrict how far down they can go because then they may not be able to use your stroller anymore once they outgrow those sizes— and all that baby equipment can get quite pricey.
#4. For infants, have them seated at the front is a good idea since this way they’ll still be able to see how you’re going and might be more inclined to settle down too.
Not only will it give them their much needed attention but also keep an eye out for potential dangers on your part; plus, with how high up from the ground they are sitting in front of you, there’s less chance of anything falling off onto them like what may happen if they were positioned elsewhere.
#5. If an infant or toddler doesn’t want to sit inside the stroller seat and would rather stand while holding onto something outside of it instead (or “bump” into things), then just put them in the stroller’s seat backwards with their back to you and they’ll be able to enjoy a full view of what’s going on around them.
#6. Make sure that when installing your baby car seat into your stroller, it is at an upright position (like how babies look while sitting up) because this will help keep their head from flopping down or looking off towards one side.
#7. You should never put anything underneath a child’s legs in order to lift them higher inside the car seat; doing so can cause serious injury if there are sudden breaks due to how fragile such little bones are.
