4. various uses of carrycot and seat
22
You can use the carrycot from the child’s birth until the child is aged around 6
months. It is only intended to be used for children who cannot sit or get up onto
their hands and knees unaided. Do not use the carrycot for children who are
longer than 76 cm/29.9 inches or heavier than 9 kg/19.8 lbs.
You can use the seat for children older than 6 months who do not weigh more
than 17 kg/37.5 lbs.
carrycot
The child is able to lie down completely. This means the spine is not placed under any stress
and the child can stretch his/her legs. For use as a pram, only place the carrycot horizontally on
the chassis. The carrycot can be turned around easily. This enables you to see into the carrycot
and the child can look at you. The carrycot can also be used without the chassis, provided it is
placed on a horizontal, stable and dry surface. This carrycot is only to be used in combination with
a bugaboo undercarriage with item code 72100.
note M
ake sure that the depth from the top of the matress to the top of the side of the carrycot, or
at any position within 300 mm from the harness attachmentspoints should not be reduced to
less than 140 mm when the mattress is in position.
note Mattresses purchased seperately should conform to BS1877 :Part 10.
WA R N I N G S
• Use the carrycot only if installed on the chassis or when placed on a horizontal,
stable and dry surface.
• Only use the carrycot in the horizontal position. In any other position, the child
may slide or fall out of the carrycot.
• Ensure that all the touch fasteners and fasteners are securely fastened before use.
• NEVER use the carrycot as a car bed. Avoid injurious or fatal accidents.
• NEVER use the carrycot fabric when it is not attached to the frame.
• Before picking up the carrycot by the carry handle, always check that the carry
handle is properly secured.
• Use the carrycot only if installed on the chassis or when placed on a horizontal,
stable and dry surface
• Use a harness as soon as your child can sit unaided.
seat
You can set the seat to one of three positions. This is only possible if the seat is on the chassis.
The 3 positions are:
1. sitting
2. reclining
3. lying
Note T he child’s posture (angle between the back support and seat pad) remains the same
in the 3 positions.
WA R N I N G
• Before picking up the seat by the carry handle, always check that the carry
handle is properly secured.
• Use safety belts when your child can sit up on its own.
23
eng
The seat can be turned around easily. That is how you change the direction your child is facing.
The seat can also be used separately from the chassis. You can use the seat as a free-standing
seat on the ground, if you fold out the frame supports completely. This seat is only to be used in
combination with a bugaboo undercarriage with item code 72100.
eng
5. using the seat safety belts
