Portable car seats have many benefits for parents.
Nothing is more valuable than a sleeping baby. Everyone can sigh with relief as both the baby and parents get the rest and relaxation they need. We often try to lull babies to sleep with anything from hypnotic mobiles, swing chairs, to lavender baby oil. Despite these fancy tricks and tools, the best method may be one’s own car.
The smooth and subtle motion of a car often serves as a baby’s best cradle. The close, encompassing feeling of a car seat also mimics the comforting feeling of being swaddled. The hubbub from getting here to there becomes a distant memory with the use of a portable car seat. Your baby can remain peacefully undisturbed as you move the car seat from car to home to store.
You’ll want to look at a few specific features when shopping for portable car seats. It’s great to get a seat that can be adjusted to size, you’ll want your seat to last as your baby grows over the next five or so months. You should also make sure it is relatively lightweight. “Portable” implies you can pick it up with your baby in it; make sure the seat lives up to its name. That being said, it should be durable as well as easy to handle. After all, car seats are first and foremost about your baby’s safety.
If transportation couldn’t get any easier, some portable car seats are custom made to fit into strollers. While features such as these can be a godsend, I don’t advise going over board when accessorizing your baby’s car seat. For example, I wouldn’t splurge for massaging car seats. As I said earlier, the car itself is bound to do the trick. You baby needs to be comfortable, not lavished.
Being able to be mobile with your baby is a great advantage. As we all know life doesn’t come to a halt after you’ve had a child. With the use of a portable car seat parents can stay on the go with their baby in tow.
