Especially vulnerable in the event of a crash, children are our most precious cargo and from their first journey out of the hospital, we want to make sure they are as safe as possible at every age. For a long time, our children’s heads are disproportionately heavier than the rest of their bodies and due to their neck muscles not being fully developed, a frontal impact can put a strain on your little one’s neck that is 5 times greater particularly if your child is forward facing in the car.
When you’re looking to buy a car seat, forward and rearward facing travel is discussed a lot and there are lots of opinions, but facts show us that if your little one is rearward facing in the car, the strain on their neck in the event of an impact is reduced significantly.
As our little ones are much safer to travel rearward facing, were always excited when a brand brings out a new ERF car seat and this time it comes from Nuna, a stylish brand with practical products so when we heard about the Nuna NORR, a birth to 4 years ERF car seat, we couldn’t wait to find out more.
One of the most important things to note about NORR is that it is ‘Plus Test Approved’ which means the testing goes way above government standards. The test is well renowned as one of the most stringent in the industry and even exceeds the iSize standard, so you know you’re in safe hands with a Plus tested car seats.
The NORR is installed into your car easily using the integrated Isofix points and your little one will be protected by the rebound bar which will minimise rotation in the event of an impact.
One of our favourite features about this car seat is the handy 90-degree swivel function which will rotate your car seat towards the car door, this makes getting your little one in and out really easy then with a quick swivel rearward facing, you’re ready for your travels!
Harness holders will store the harness out of the way until your little one is in the seat and ventilation panels on the seat allows excellent airflow to keep your little one cool, especially on warmer days.
Your baby will be comfortable at all ages thanks to the seven position recline and as they grow, the adjustable headrest will grow with them for comfort and protection. The harness will adjust with the headrest and thanks to this, you won’t have to worry about rethreading the harness at every stage.
Available in Caviar, a beautiful two tone black, the NORR will not only keep your child super safe, but it also looks great too! Stock will be available from early September and we can’t wait to see what you think!
