Did you know that newborns should lie completely flat when they are sleeping, even in the car, to help with breathing and healthy spine development?
lying flat prevents the baby's undeveloped neck from flopping forwards and restricting air flow, when they relax or fall asleep.
The majority of组0/0 +汽车座椅(designed to be used from birth) have a slight recline, so experts recommend that your child only spends two to three hours at a time in one.
So, choosing a lie-flat car seat is the best option for your newborn, allowing them to be in the correct position even if you are travelling long distances.
