Getting out and about with a baby is a new experience, and with the right tools up your sleeve it can be fun. Babies, particularly newborns, are asleep for a large part of their day. So, if you want the freedom to get out and about while your baby sleeps, a travel system is a great, convenient way to go.
What is a Travel System?
A travel system combines a pushchair with a baby car seat; a two-in-one system that’s convenient and easy to use, to allow you to transition seamlessly from car to pushchair and keep your baby comfortable and asleep. A baby car seat is rear-facing and can easily be removed from the car to attach to the frame of the pushchair using adaptors. Rather than taking the baby out of the baby car seat and transferring to the pushchair, you simply lift the baby car seat out of the car, and clip it onto the pushchair frame, creating a convenient travel system that makes being out and about with your new baby effortless.
The Benefits of Using A Travel System
There are many benefits to using a travel system, rather than an independent car seat and pushchair combination.
A travel system provides an easy and convenient way of transferring your baby from car to pushchair, without having to unbuckle or wake them. Simply unfold the pushchair, unclip and lift the baby car seat from the car, and clip it onto the pushchair frame, using the appropriate adaptors.
Manoeuvring a baby (particularly a newborn) into 0-4-year-old car seat can be tricky, so Redsbaby have implemented this travel system to assist with keeping your child safe and comfortable while you transfer them in and out of the car.
A cost effective way of using a travel system is to hire a baby car seat instead of purchasing one. Most baby car seats can be used from newborn up until 12-15 months (depending on the size of your baby), after 15 months your child can be transitioned to a forward-facing car seat, although it is ideal to keep them rear facing until they are at least 18kg / 4 years old. We recommend referring to your local road safety authority for child car restraint regulations.
