Is Doona Car Seat Safe For Newborn?
Doona is a car seat, stroller, and bassinet in one. It’s perfect for newborns because it will help you carry your baby comfortably without worrying about the safety of their neck or back. The best part?
Doona keeps them asleep with its unique cosy cocoon that minimizes startle reflexes which disturb sleep patterns, just like swaddling does. And when they get older, simply unzip to convert into a strolling system. Talk about multi-use.
How Old Can A Baby Use A Doona?
The Doona is suitable for babies from birth up to approximately 18 months or until your baby reaches the maximum weight of 25 lbs.
This means that some children may be able to use a Doona beyond their second birthday, as long as they are within the guidelines and have no medical conditions which restrict them from using it.
The seat can also recline so you can adjust how upright or laid back it is, depending on your child’s preference.
Some parents find this useful when trying to get their little one to sleep without being uncomfortable in an inclined position.
If there are any concerns about its suitability then always consult with your doctor before buying one or checking if other types would work better for you.
Can You Use The Doona Without The Base?
The Doona can be used without the base, however, you will need to use higher weight settings.
The highest setting with no base is 25lbs (11kg) which means that if your child weighs more than this then they won’t be able to ride in it safely without a base. If you want something lighter or bigger there are other options out there for bigger kids and adults.
How Do You Install A Doona Car Seat Without A Base?
To install a Doona car seat without a base, you will need the following: an approved Doona Device and Micro-USB charger.
Whilst your baby is rear-facing, attach the top tether strap. If needed, tighten this by rotating it clockwise or counterclockwise until there is adequate tension. You can do so by hand as well as with pliers if necessary.
Next up, pull on both of the belt guides located below each foot-well in the car to compress them into their respective brackets that are attached to those areas.
Use your weight from standing over top of where your child’s head should be once installed correctly to push down firmly on his/her chest whilst tightening all straps including the chest clip and the top tether strap. Make sure to test after each step has been completed.
How Do You Put Down A Doona Stroller?
It is easy to put down a Doona stroller. First, you have to fold the seat up and back to your desired position.
This action locks in place so that it will not open again when being transported. When moving forward or backwards, make sure the front wheels are locked into a straight mode for an easier ride experience.
Make sure all restraints are used properly before driving off without baby included because if they aren’t secured well enough to withstand an accident then there’s no point in using them at all.
To protect from tipping over while parked on a hill, lock both rear-wheel brakes by rotating their levers towards the ground until released sounds can be heard. You may also drag a strap across the handlebars if needed for extra stability.
Does The Doona Car Seat Recline?
Yes, the Doona car seat recline is able to accommodate infants from birth until they weigh 35 pounds. This baby car seat can lay out flat at a 45-degree angle for newborns and up straight for babies over six months old.
The weight of this lightweight infant car seat is about 16 pounds making it easy to carry or attach onto most strollers using their universal adaptors if you have more than one child in your family that requires a carrier.
Many parents appreciate being able to use just one type of infant transportation device throughout their kids’ developmental stages as opposed to having two different types of carriers which only do half the job.
Can You Wash Doona Insert?
Yes. We recommend hand-wash the Doona insert with cold water and mild detergent. After, you should let it air dry away from direct sunlight or heating sources like clothes drier.
You can also put your inserts in the washing machine on a gentle cycle but make sure they are not exposed to bleach (bleach is terrible for fabric).
It’s best to wash them alone so that there aren’t any other items getting tangled up or stuck together during the process.
If you have an older Doona cover then only use non-chlorine bleach if necessary as this will reduce damage over time due to fading colors and material deterioration caused by chlorine bleaching agents which break down fibres over time.
