Car seat guide

Here we have collected everything you need to know about child car seats. You can also test our car seat configurator, which helps you find the best car seat based on your family’s needs.

Thank you for being here! Choosing a child car seat is one of the most important decisions you as a parent make for your child. Should an accident occur, the safety of your child means everything.

It is important that children travel safely and comfortably, regardless of whether you are going “just around the corner” or on a long road trip. Therefore, it’s great that you choose to familiarize yourself with everything from safety and comfort to colour choices and regulations.

There is a lot of information to take in, which is why BeSafe has created this guide to give you the most important information first. You may already know some things. Other things may be new. If you want further information about a specific topic, simply follow the link to our in-depth articles.

Which car seat fits my child?

We use four different categories when talking about child car seats:

Infant carrier, 2-in-1 seat from birth, toddler car seat and high-back booster.

Car seats from birth:

When choosing a seat for your newborn, there are two paths you can choose from: either to use an infant carrier from approx. 0-1 year, followed by a toddler seat until approx. 4 years; or to use a 2-in-1 seat from 0 to approx. 4 years.

Infant carrier:

For children from 0-13 kg or 40-75 cm or about 0-12 months. Can be attached to various prams.
