Is the Doona™ safe?
Doona™ is the only product to pass both ECE R44/04 Car seats and BSEN1888:2012 Pushchair stroller tests. Simple Parenting’s Engineering, Safety and Medical experts spent eight years developing Doona™. Their key focus was ensuring that a baby is safe and comfortable both inside and outside the car. The Doona is a safe alternative to your existing infant 0+ car seat only. In addition Doona has been safety tested by ADAC scoring the same safety standards and grades as the leading car seat brand in the marketplace. Furthermore free with every Doona is the Newborn insert that has been developed to provide a near flat ergonomic position for your baby and ensures the neck and spine are aligned in an ergonomic position. Doona makes everyday simple parenting safer:
- Safer at the petrol station to pop in and pay
- Safer to use on stairs or escalators, at home, in your flat or at the tube station
- Safer to use in a taxi, friends car, on the bus, tram, train or plane when your pram and cot are in the boot or stowage.
- Ease of use for the school run or popping to the shop.
Like all infant car seats, Doona™ is not intended for the baby to be in all day. Similar to a lie back new born stroller, the angle of the Doona’s™ orthopaedic back rest and padding, coupled with the shape of the shell provides maximum comfort and safety for your infant, with a previously unattended level of convenience and flexibility.
Safety was and is our #1 concern and will continue to be so. The Doona is here to help make parents day to day life more safe and simple.
