FAQ
What is IsoFix?

ISOFIX is an international standardized fitting system, which provides the safest, easiest and quickest way to install a child car seat correctly without the need of vehicle seat belts. The name ISOFIX stands for ISO (International Standardization Organization) plus FIX (Fixation). ISOFIX car seats make use of two standard attachment points located at the base of the seat, plus an anti-tipping forward device: either a support leg or top tether.
From 2006 all new cars are equipped with ISOFIX, and ISOFIX is also fitted in a large number of car brands built prior to 2006.

Why do babies have to travel in a reward facing position?
Babies have a large and heavy head compared to the rest of their body. In addition, their neck muscles are not yet fully developed. If the baby is transported in a forward-facing position, his or her head will be thrown forward in the event of a head-on collision. This can cause serious neck injury and may even be fatal. By placing the baby in a rear-facing position, the forces exerted during the crash will be distributed across the baby’s entire back.
How to ensure a correct Top Tether installation ?
What is key is to always check the Top Tether is correctly tight. An green indicator on the Top Tether is ensuring the correct tension.
To obtain the best tension of the Top Tether, you should look for the shorter routing, going directly from the top of the car seat to the Top Tether hook (often located on the luggage compartment)
We recommend to remove the headrest to avoid deviate the top tether routing from this shorter route, and consequently ensure a very tight installation in any situations.
Installing the top tether in between the headrest or on top of the headrest can deviate his natural routing, and be less efficient in case of impact.
How long can I use the Bébé Confort car seats without a break when travelling by car?
This is subject to a lot of misunderstanding. This is generally said and written out of concern for babies and, in a nutshell, boils down to the fact that a baby car seat such as e.g. a Bébé Confort Pebble should not be used excessively. Children should not lie in a fixed position for too long unnecessarily. They must be given the opportunity to develop their motor system and arm, back and neck muscles. As manufacturers of the first car seat for babies in Europe, we have of course been including this in our instructions for many years. So do not place a baby in his or her seat for the entire day for reasons of convenience, but give him or her the opportunity to develop. This also applies to front pack carriers and all other products in which a baby sits, hangs or lies in a stationary position. However, this will not be a problem at all if you need to make a relatively long car journey or holiday trip once in a while. Our advice is as follows: stop once every 2 hours. After all, the baby must also eat and be cleaned on a regular basis.

My child climbs out of the belt system on the car seat.
The same principle applies to all car seats and means that your child cannot create extra space if there is no extra space to begin with. Some children have shown us that, with only a minimum of slack in the belt system, they can get a hand between the buckle and their stomach and then, by moving it towards their head, they can get an elbow under the belts – but this requires a very flexible shoulder. These children display a tremendous desire to free themselves from their car seat. Child safety in the car and freedom of movement are not compatible in principle. To transport a child not only safely but also comfortably, a slight amount of slack in the belt system is needed. If the belt is pulled extremely tightly and the child is sitting calmly in the car seat, experience has taught us that all car seats are the same when it comes to 'climbing out of the car seat'. We see a similar pattern in children ages 1-4 years in car seats of various types and from various manufacturers. The belt system is a closed system that keeps the child in the same position continuously - during normal car trips as well as during a sudden stop or accident. This system is closed by securing the child when tightening the belts. If this is done properly, the belts cannot be loosened during use (if this does happen, we ask that you contact our Service Department through the retailer where you bought the product).
The belts are not the same length. Why is this?
Uneven belts may be caused by the incorrect guiding of the harness system. Check at the back of the car seat that the belts are not twisted and that the pull belt (that runs forward at the bottom of the shell) is in the middle of the system. Also check that the belt can move easily to and fro through the shoulder openings. For smooth movement, the belt buckle should be flapped forward completely. This belt buckle operates by releasing the belt tensioner. If the problem continues after you have checked this, consult your retailer.
What should I do if my child opens the buckle of his harness belt?
In this case, we recommend, as do all international safety experts, that you stop immediately in a safe place, fasten the buckle once more and tell the child he should not open it and the reason for this. It is always a possibility that an inventive, handy or strong child will open the buckle. If the force required to open the buckle were to be considerably increased to make it impossible for the child to open it himself, this would be contrary to the legal safety standards. The position of the buckle, the colour of the button, and the operating or opening force are all laid down in European standards. In the case of an accident, someone providing assistance without any knowledge of car seats must be able to see immediately how to release the child from a car seat in an emergency.
When the buckle is open, I can no longer lengthen the harnesses, as if they are stuck. What's the problem?
This may happen because the belt buckle is not flapped forward enough. Pushing this forward by hand will release the blockage, so that you can loosen the harnesses.
Is it possible to mount my car seat (Group 1) onto the frame of my pushchair?
This is not possible with our current range of products. Our products are developed with a strong focus on safety, quality and user-friendliness. The combination you are asking about would require that we make concessions to these three aspects. We have decided against making such concessions at this time.
How to find the location of the Top Tether anchorage ?
Unfortunatly, there is no standard location for Top Tether anchorages in the car. Most often, this anchorage is located in the boot, just behind the rear seats. Now most of the new cars models identify this anchorage with a Top Tether label, where you can see a drawing of a car seat with anchor at the back. To help your to find this anchorage, we invite you to go on our online car fitting list, select your car, and we will show you in which area is located this anchorage. This list is not complete but is regularly updated for your convenience. If you have any douts, or if you don't find the information, please look at the car instruction manual. Be carefull, some anchorages are made to attach a lugagge mesh and are not strong enough to attach the top tether.
Is MiloFix compatible with my car ?
MiloFix is a ISOFIX car seat, so it can only be installed on cars equipped with 3 ISOFIX anchors (2 anchors at car seat bench + 1 Top Tether anchorage). We invite you to check in your car instruction manual if your car is equipped with 3 point ISOFIX. There are several possiblities to check if MiloFix fits your car:
- Check in our online car fitting list
- Flash QR code on MiloFix car seat
- Check in store on the car fitting list booklet delivered with MiloFix
Can I recline MiloFix in rearward facing travel?

In rearward facing travel, MiloFix has a unique recline position. This natural recline has been designed to offer best protection to the child in case of collision. It is therefore important to have this fixed position. For extra comfort, a newborn cushion is included to offer an optimal recline. Nevertheless, all cars are different, and the car seat may be positionned too upright if the vehicle seat has a deep angle. You may adjust the vehicle seat recline if possible or fill the seat hole without changing the car seat belt routing.

From what age can the support pillow be removed from the MiloFix?

The support pillow provides your baby additional comfort right after birth. We recommand you to use it from birth to approximatly 5.5 kg. Once you find your baby too tight in the car seat, and exceeds 5.5kg, you can then remove the support pillow, and use the regular seat.

How long can I place my baby rearward facing in the MiloFix?

MiloFix has been tested to be used rearward facing until 13 kg. With this large seat, you can install comfortably your baby until approximatly 15/18months, and even more if he weights less than 13 kg. Of course, MiloFix can be used from birth, but it is also the perfect car seat to use right after a safety carrycot or an infant carrier, when the baby is not fitting anymore in these baby seats, but still needs to be installed rearward facing for a longer time. Looking at the car seat regulation, you can install the baby from 9 kg in forward facing, but we recommand to keep your baby until 13 kg in rearward facing. An informative measuring scale is placed closed to the headrest to help you know when it could be time to switch from rearward to forward facing position.

How to switch MiloFix car seat from rearward to forward facing?

To switch from rearward to forward facing, you need to disconnect the 3 ISOFIX points (2 ISOFIX connectors and 1 Top Tether), turn over the car seat, and rotate the base to change seat position from rearward to forward facing. Note that the base can't rotate if the car seat is in recline position (you should put it in the most upright position to be able to rotate the base). We invite you to look at the MiloFix installation movie for a more details in the Bébé Confort website or scan the QR code on MiloFix installation labels. 

When can I switch MiloFix from rearward facing to forward facing?

According to the car seat regulation, you can use MiloFix in forward facing position (group 1) from 9 kg (around 9 months), but we strongly recommand you to keep your child rearward facing until 13 kg (approximatly 15/18 months) to better protect the baby's fragile head and neck in case of accidents. To help you know when you can switch from rearward facing to forward facing, you can use the informative measuring scale integrated closed to the headrest.
