4 Important Car Features for Expectant Parents
One of the greatest joys in the world is to know that your baby is on his way. The happiness of being a parent is irreplaceable, but this joy is always accompanied with an even greater responsibility. The life and wellbeing of the cutie is in your hands, so you have to make sure you leave no stone unturned in taking care of your little fella. Expectant parents all around the world change their lifestyles in a manner that is safe for their little one. If you own a car and a new family member is on his way, it’s time to upgrade your car with some baby friendly car features. You can also look for a brand new car with similar features. Let’s have a look at 4 important car features for expectant parents:
1. The LATCH System
The first thing you should be thinking about as new parents is the safety of your infant. LATCH stands for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children. This is a must have car feature for people with little babies. This system allows you to mount a car seat in your vehicle. But before you install, test it to ensure that you do not have any trouble taking your baby in and out of the car. Some LATCH systems are difficult to load and unload while others are easy. Make sure you follow installation instructions of the provider and your car’s owner manual for accurate installation.
2. A Large Trunk
We know how carrying around your baby requires a lot of space in the car. Less for the baby, more for baby stuff like the pram, baby bag, and all the toys especially that huge Pikachu your munchkin loves so much. Now, where would you put all that? Vehicles with big trunk come in handy when you have a baby who wants it all everywhere you go.
Rear Window Tint or Built-in Roll-Up Sunshades
In the UAE climate, the mighty sun is always peaking inside the cars. I know you are used to live like this and you have your sunglasses to put on. But what about the new sensitive pair of eyes you are carrying around? Unless your baby lets you put glasses on him too, install a rear window tint in your vehicle. You can also look for a vehicle with built-in roll-up sunshades.
You have a new baby coming, which means you already have a few before or more will follow. In any case, it is safe to install a rear-view camera in your car, so that you don’t always have to turn around and get distracted by your cutie pie while you reverse your car.
There are many other necessary car features for babies. However, choosing baby friendly car features would depend on your budget. If budget isn’t an issue, you can have rear video screens installed in your vehicle, so that your little one never gets bored. It is wise to keep your budget in mind when you set out to upgrade your vehicle with new car features. This will help you narrow down your choices and choose what is most important and what’s not.
