Tips to choose the correct seat : 

Look out for the following:

  • Spine is straight/neutral and not bending or slouching forward 
  • Pelvis in neutral alignment and not tucked under 
  • Seat that tilts the pelvis forward and allows the child to sit up straighter because the core muscles are more activated
  • Safe and appropriate 

Important tips when using baby seat:

1. Wait until the baby is ready. We do not want to encourage sitting until your baby has achieved head control.

2. Arms should be supported at the chest level / spine should not be curved like C.

3. We don’t encourage keeping the baby on the seat for prolonged periods.
