The 10 Best Car Seats & Boosters In Singapore

Safety comes first. For kids sitting in cars, protection comes in the form of car seats. Car seats have been proven to prevent major injuries in the event of a car crash, reducing the risk of injury, hospitalization or death by 70%.

But, how exactly do you choose a car seat? Here are some things you should consider.

1. Select a tested and approved car seat

Choose a seat that has met several different safety standards and ensure it meets Singapore’s regulations.

2. Make sure you choose the correct seat for your child’s age and height

Measure your child’s height and weight before picking a car seat. There’s lots of car seats that are adjustable, but most of them will specify what heights and weights they work best for.

3. Choose a car seat with desirable features

Figure out what you’re looking for in a booster seat. This could mean taking into consideration easy installation, style, and comfort.

4. Side impact protection

Make sure that the car seat you buy is one that has ample side impact protection. This will ensure the utmost safety for your child.

5. Plenty of legroom means longer usage

If you’d like a car seat to last you longer, finding one that gives your child more legroom will let you use the car seat for a longer period of time. And considering the price point of some of these car seats, finding one that lasts a while might be fiscally wise.

As a parent, you have a lot of different car seats to choose from, so here are some our favourite car seats and booster seats!
