Car Seat Breathing

Manufacturers Statements

In January of 2017 we wrote to all the major car seat manufactures and asked them what research they had done in regard newborns in car seats and oxygen desaturation.

We also asked what advice they now offer to new parents in relation to how long a newborn can travel in their products.

We expected replies by late February 2017 but as of May 2017 only ONE company has replied (Jane) saying that they were aware of the breathing issue risks for newborns and for the last ten years had promoted Matrix as a safe and healthy lie flat car seat with no time limits.

In fairness Kiddy also make very strong public statements about the risk for newborns in upright car seats. 

We requested (for the second time) a response from the other car seat suppliers but NOT ONE would give a comment.
