Car Seat

We all know about the increase road accidents (touch wood) nowadays, thus making parents listing down "car seat" in their essential list of things to buy. I've been hearing mothers having problem to get their babies to sit in their own car seat. Well, I recently bought my darling babies their car seat and the salesgirl shared with us some tips. Of coz, I also fear if my babies cry through out the whole trip, and imagine the noise if both started crying, doing the choir, and i ended up getting them off the car seat coz can't stand the loud choir. Which then doesnt serve the purpose me spending money on those car seats. Two car seats certainly not cheap.

Anyway, the salesgirl told us that we should get the babies used to the car seat, dont straight away buckle them up in the car. Get them used to it. So we ended up putting the car seat in the house, and placing both of them in it from time to time. It started off with a few minutes session on it, then gradually increase the time period. First try, both of them cried, so we put them on it without buckle up the belts. Then later when they look more comfortable we tried on the belt. Wow, good progress...hehehe. hArith is certainly doing fine, but athirAh being too small, she basically sank in the chair. So we just have to wait she put on few more kilos (she's now 2.3kg) before we start again her seating session. hArith started off with few minutes session and end up having no problem watching tv while seating in his car seat. Falling asleep and waking up in it.

So his first trip in the car seat was to my brothers house cause the pest control wants to pray chemical all over the house. Me bawak them lari to my bro's place. hArith had no problem at all, even when we reached my bro's place we let him remain in the car seat. Brought him in, and put him on the sofa. Suddenly we realise he was already asleep...comfortably. athirAh managed to sit in her car seat, but once arrived, she demanded to be out of it. Well, fine with me.

Because hArith seems so comfortable seating on it,in fact enjoying it, we decided to bring him along to fetch my sister at the airport. Again...no problem at all.

So mothers out there, if you are having problem getting getting your babies to sit in ther car seat, start it off with few minutes session and gradually increase the time frame.

g00d luck!

yeah.. i agree wif u..
car seat is most important thing for babies nowadays.. especially, for mother who having more than one baby in the same time like us..
susah nk travel bwk baby kalo x de car set..
mine, we bought car seat for my twins when there r 3 months.. sbb kene tggu pinggang dia kuat utk duduk..
alhamdulillah.. so far, they never give me trouble during journey..
cume time mule2 tu.. they refuse to sit on it, siap memberontak lg.. then, once kereta da gerak, terus terdiam then tido..
smpai la skrg.. tiap kali dok dlm car seat je mesti tido, w/pun short journey.. hehe..
