Many parents are wondering what the shell is and I really need it.
Here, everything is a question of point of view.
There are convertible seats dict, which you can use almost at birth, but between you and me, now almost all the maternities in the hospital require a shell at the exit of the mother and the child.
Why a shell?
Often it is evoked security, other times the concern for transportation, convenience.
The reasons are multiple
However, let's see the pros and cons
For the shell
A lot of parents love the shell for transportation from one car to another, from the car to the house, from the car to the grocery cart, from the car to the stroller ... All of this (if you're lucky ) without waking baby. We save a lot of time in the attachment phase detaches.
Personally, I find it convenient to move the child without inconveniencing him.
Against the shell
The counters are often the first hesitation of the parents on the fact that the shell is thrown after 7 years. I specify here 7 years after the date of manufacture, not the date of purchase.
It is quite possible that you automatically lost 1 to 2 years depending on the brand.
Then there is the concern of the car base. Who will take it? Do I still have the displaced? And grandparents, should they buy a second?
And the weight? You thought hen?
Calm us a little and summarize
The shell is practical because it is possible to move your child easily and without much maneuver. The advantage is that most evolutive seats are not easily transportable, unlike the shell that can directly be added to almost all strollers today. (I can not see myself with a huge seat in my hand, baby in the other, a diaper bag, a purse, a laptop ... well, you can see the painting, especially if it's coming out of the cab!)
The shell is easy to transport
Reusable over a period of 7 years from the date of manufacture
Can install on multiple bases (provided it is the same company)
Secures your child with its backward angled position
Various models to match your needs.
Can sit on the grocery cart, on the stroller, etc.
Much lighter than convertible seats
Save time and space
Officially, it is the option that is best advised to have peace of mind until the 30 or 35 pounds that will one day your baby.
