The ‘two hour rule’ is the established recommendation, endorsed by safety experts and manufacturers, which suggests children shouldn’t sit in an upright car seat for more than two hours at a time.
This is because babies and very young children can experience breathing problems if placed in a seated, or scrunched position, for too long.
Indeed, health officials and medical studies agree that to minimise periods of oxygen desaturation, newborn babies should be transported in a lie-flat travel system and babies should NOT be transported in an upright position for more than half-an-hour.
In the carrycot position it can be used for occasional overnight sleeping, so you don’t have to invest in a travel cot initially. Your child can travel lying down flat in carrycot mode to begin with, then there are four recline positions for when the baby is older. Matrix means you can take a sleeping baby from the house, click it into the Isofix base in the car and head off on whatever length of journey you need to make, without having to worry about.
The Matrix is compatible with JANE pushchairs including the Epic, Crosswalk, Muum, Twone and Rider, and is suitable from birth to around eighteen months.
