The practical side: Practical, the booster allows the toddler to sit at a right height at the table of the big ones. However, it is also an alternative to the high chair, when you go on weekends and do not have the urge or the possibility to clutter you. Not all booster seats are for the same age group. Some can be used as soon as the child knows to stand alone, that is to say about 8-9 months. Others agree from 12 or 18 months, or even longer.

Various models: the choice of the type will depend on the use you want to make of it: light and not bulky for travel, more design (or discreet) for the living room … The most common is a large cube or a kind of armchair, Which is attached to the chair by multiple straps.

However, there are also mini-chairs folding, ultra-flat once closed. Still, others are nomadic, perfectly adapted to movements, with their handle, storage bag and integrated changing mat. The booster is also an investment that can very quickly be profitable: most of them evolve in the seat or small armchair when the child grows. Suitable sometimes even up to 6 or 7 years of the child. Another good point, their maintenance is easy: a sponge is enough.

Security

Since January 2013, a new European standard, NF EN 16120, defines the safety requirements for booster seats for children who can sit alone up to 3 years or 15 kg maximum: stability, security of the attachment system and There is also a US standard, ASTM F2640-10, which applies to models up to 5 years of age.

Active fixation is required. Make sure that the chair is perfectly stable and its seat is larger than the booster seat. Position it as close as possible to the backrest, tighten the straps as far as possible and check their condition regularly.

The child must always remain under surveillance, be tied, even for a few minutes, and not be able to push the table with his feet.

Observe the installation and operating instructions. Never put the booster seat on a stool, folding chair or with an open back. It must not be placed on a raised or sloped surface.

Choose a seat that is thick enough: your child will be able to put his feet on his edge, for more comfort.

Ideal for a few days, this nomad booster also serves as a changing bag. Soft and light, it offers an excellent capacity: a carpet of exchange, integrated into the pocket of the bottom, and many tidying up.
