For the protection of your baby
The baby insert gives your baby
the necessary support while he
or she is still small.
The baby insert is used to
provide extra comfort for very
small babies.
Caution! Please use the baby insert attached
to this car seat when your baby's weight is less
than 9kg.
Always secure your baby in the car seat using the
harness.
Never leave your baby unattended in the car seat
when placing it on elevated surfaces (e.g. a table,
nappy changing unit, etc.).
Never allow the strap end to become caught in
moving parts (e.g. automatic doors, escalators,
etc.).
Caution! The plastic parts of the car seat heat up in
the sun, so that your baby may get burnt. Protect
your baby and the car seat against intensive solar
radiation (e.g. by putting a light cloth over the
seat).
Take your baby out of the car seat as often as
possible to relieve its spine. We recommend
frequent breaks during long journeys. Even outside
of the car, please avoid leaving your baby in the
car seat for too long.
