FAQs
What should I do if my child opens the buckle of his safety harness?
In this case, we recommend 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 determined in European standards.
What is the right position/height for the safety harness?
The harness straps should be placed at the level of the shoulders, not coming from above nor below. The headrest should be adjusted in consequence, keeping the harness at the level of the shoulders.
The harness belts has not the same length right and left. Why is this?
Uneven harness belts length may be caused by the incorrect guiding of the harness system. Check at the back of the car seat that the harness 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 from through the shoulder openings. For smooth movement, the harness buckle should be flapped forward completely. This harness buckle operates by releasing the belt tensioner. If the problem continues, please consult your retailer or contact our consumer service.
Is it possible to install a car seat (group 0+/1 or group 1) on a Bébé Confort pushchairs ?
Only safety carrycots (group 0: e.g Windoo Plus or Compact safety carrycot) and infant car seats (group 0+: e.g Pebble, CabrioFix, Streety.Fix) can be installed on a Bébé Confort pushchairs. Designed to easily transport comfortably and safely the baby from car to pushchair to home, safety carrycots and infant car seats are very convenient for babies. When baby is growing, he starts to seat well by himself, and it become more and more difficult to carry him in an infant carrier because of the weight. Toddler car seats (group 0+/1 or group 1) are then the ideal solution to travel safely with the growing toddler until 4 years. Of course, as group 0+/1 and group 1 grow with the toddler to always offer him the best protection, the car seat is heavier than an infant carrier, so it's not convenient to daily carry it. Because we don't want to compromise on safety, comfort and ease of use, group 0+/1 and Group 1 are not compatible with pushchairs.
Do I have to desactivate the airbag if I install a group 1 car seats on the front passenger seat ?
The European car seat regulation is not compelling to desactivate the front passenger airbag if we want to install a forward facing car seat like a group 1 or a group 2/3. It only mandatory to desactivate this airbag for the rearward facing car seat only (e.g group 0+). Nevertheless, because of the size and the force of spreading of an airbag which are different from one car to another, and because airbag are design to protect adults and not children, we recommand to also desactivate it for forward facing car seats.
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 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
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. Find out more about ISOFIX.
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 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. 
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.
My child climbs out of the safety harness, what can I do ?
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).
Why do baby and young toddler have to travel in rearward facing position ?
Babies have a large and relatively heavy head compared to the rest of their body. In addition, their neck muscles are not yet fully developed. If the baby is travelling 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. It then safer to travel rearward facing with babies until at least 15 months.
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.
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.

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 is the right position for the headrest ?
The headrest should always be adjusted to the child's head: not too low, not too high. It means the child's head has to be totally protected by the headrest, and should not go over the headrest. The head and the neck are the most fragile part of the body, so it important to always make sure the child's fragile head is always best protected inside the car seat
What is the right position/height for the harness ?
The harness straps should be placed as close as possible from the shoulders: not too high, not too low. The best position is really at the level of the shoulders. The headrest should be adjusted in consequence, keeping the harness at the level of the shoulders. For your convenience, most of our car seats are equipped with a simultaneous headrest and harness adjustment, so it easier to adjust the harness and the headrest to the right level to offer best protection to the child.
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.
