There are three basic types of car seats for infants and toddlers: rear-facing, forward-facing and convertible, which convert from rear to forward-facing. SO why do we need car seats for our kids? Based on the CDC study of the car seat 2-year statistics show that there are more than 600 children 12 and younger died in motor vehicle crashes, and more than 91,000 were injured due to they were not buckled up.
Better car seats reduce the risk for injury in crashes by 71–82% for children, booster seat use reduces the risk for serious injury by 45% for children aged 4–8.
Therefore, at Jarrons & Co we’re here to share the car seats that we’re recommending for your kids!

All mandatory certification is conducted, to assure the highest levels of safety. Doona, with its unique hybrid functionality, has been tested to meet the strictest US standards for Car-Seats, Strollers and Hand-Held Carriers.
Doona successfully passed all required compliance tests including extreme weather conditions clossino at very high speeds, which scored a high 5-star rating. Doona continuously conducts more than 20 different standard tests to ensure durability over time, prevent consumer misuse, and more.
Doona’s unique structure enables positioning the handle against the back of the car seat thus providing the baby with exceptional Anti-Rebound protection. This helps to absorb the impact and prevents and dramatically reduces rebound injuries.
Doona is an ideal solution for air travel as it is an approved car seat to keep their child safe throughout the flights. Doona has been certified and approved by the US authorities for air travel and therefore offers the perfect solution for family’s on-the-go.
Doona’s design and engineering teams developed multiple fail-safe mechanisms to assure safe operations and prevent unforeseen incidents such as unintentional folding, hasty extension of carry mode handle, and rotation of the extended handle in the “on-the-go” mode.
With a 5-point harness, the baby’s abdominal area is protected and does not endure such high loads. The shoulder straps can be easily adjusted to the correct shoulders’ height which secures the child in the safest position within the protective seat shell.
Side Impact Protection
The unique double-wall structure of Doona enables the folding of the wheels into the body and offers a significant safety benefit. The two layers of durable, impact-absorbing plastic, along with additional layers of EPS, foam, and textiles provide enhanced side-impact protection.
All materials used in our products are free of hazardous chemicals and are carefully tested and approved under the strictest European standards and the REACH regulation, including SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern). The textiles are tested for their durability and quality to assure the safety and continuous use of the products. In addition, they are all breathable, removable, and washable textiles.
Doona Car Seat Stroller is recommended for parents who are looking for a rear-facing car seat for newly born until age 2-4. Infants and toddlers should be buckled in a rear-facing car seat with a harness until they reach the maximum weight or height limit of their car seat. This offers the best possible protection. Moreover, parents should check the car seat manual and labels on the car seat for weight and height limits, and never place a rear-facing car seat in the front seat.

How to pick the most suitable car seat for you and your child?
Be sure children are properly buckled in a car seat or booster seat whichever is appropriate for their age, height and weight. There are 3 different seats which are a rear-facing car seat, a forward-facing car seat and a booster seat which will help you to determine which is the most suitable car seat that you need for your child.
Rear-facing car seat
Use a rear-facing car seat from birth until age 2-4. Infants and toddlers should be buckled in a rear-facing car seat with a harness, in the back seat, until they reach the maximum weight or height limit of their car seat. This offers the best possible protection. Parents should check the car seat manual and labels on the car seat for weight and height limits. Make sure that you never place a rear-facing car seat in the front seat. Front passenger airbags can injure or kill young children in a crash.
The most recommended from Jarrons & Co are the Doona Car Seat Stroller, Baby Trend PROtect Series Elite Convertible Car Seat and Baby Trend PROtect Car Seat Series Sport Convertible.
Foward-facing car seat
Use a rear-facing car seat from birth until age 2-4. After outgrowing the rear-facing car seat, use a forward-facing car seat until at least age 5. When children outgrow their rear-facing car seats, they should be buckled in a forward-facing car seat with a harness, in the back seat. They should stay in the forward-facing car seat until they reach the maximum weight or height limit of this seat. The forward-facing car seat that we recommended for you are Baby Trend PROtect Series Elite Convertible Car Seat, and Baby Trend PROtect Car Seat Series Sport Convertible.
Last but not least, after outgrowing the forward-facing car seat, use the booster seat until the seat belt fits properly. When children outgrow their forward-facing car seat, they should be buckled in a belt-positioning booster seat with a seat belt, in the back seat, until the seat belt fits properly without a booster seat. A seat belt fits properly when the lap belt is across the upper thighs (not the stomach) and the shoulder belt is across the centre of the shoulder and chest (not on the neck/face or off the shoulder). This typically does not occur until children are aged 9–12. When the seat belt fits properly without a booster seat, use a seat belt on every trip. We recommend you Baby Trend PROtect Car Seat Series Yumi® 2-In-1 Folding Booster Seat.
