Why Should You Rent An Infant Car Seat And Base?

by Annelize Van Dyk

Ever ask yourself: why do I need to buy the entire travel system when I only need the infant seat? Well, that’s because each infant car seat matches its own branded stroller. Times have changed however, and the world of adapters are a game changer! 

Now you can for example use a Maxi-cosi infant car seat with adapters that allow you to use a Bebe Confort stroller. Two different brands but they allow you to choose the infant car seat best suited for your little one whilst you can select a stroller that’s going to last your baby for the next few years!

9/10 1st time parents purchase a travel system because they need the infant car seat only and it comes with the stroller…so they feel obligated to buy the entire set. 

Fast forward 6 months to a year after baby has been born and they no longer need the infant seat and as a result, they don’t need the matching stroller either. They would rather buy a single stroller or perhaps even a jogger that is now better suited for their requirements because let’s be honest: what you thought you needed before the baby is born, changes completely once baby is born.

So then, WHY RENT AN IFNANT CAR SEAT AND BASE instead of buying it?

  • We know that even though the weight limit of an infant car seat is 13kg, that in real life 90% of babies are just too tall or too big for their seat from 6 months old. 
  • Infant seats are short-term products due to the above. This means the infant seat bases will also only be used for a short time.
  • Research shows that 70% of car seats are incorrectly installed and that having a base may prevent this. Also, once you have installed your base you don’t have to keep on installing it again. Less room for error and it provides more stability.
  • It will be beneficial for you to get a base in each car, as this will be less hassle, time, and room for installation mistakes.
  • Having to buy 2 bases for such a short time can be very costly and therefore renting it makes so much sense.
  • Less space being taken up in your home with products that your baby no longer needs
