Philippines Will Now Require Car Seats for Babies and Toddlers




Child safety must be a priority, says Philippine TV’s sweetheart Camille Prats Yambao

Resting for a while after her daughter Nala was born in September 2017, Camille Prats Yambao is now back to work, and with a purpose. The busy young mom’s latest project helps to create awareness for the “Child Safety in Motor Vehicles Act of 2017,” approved by the House of Representatives last year, and is now for deliberation in the Senate. This comes at an important time, because in the Philippines alone, it is reported that an average of more than 600 children have died in road crashes from 2006 to 2014.

To help raise awareness for children’s safety when travelling, Philippine TV’s beloved princess, Camille Prats Yambao is partnering with a well-known global quality manufacturer of baby car seats, strollers, high chairs, and baby carriers.

"I believe that safety is important, especially when we're on the road with our children,” says Prats Yambao. “That's why I am so thankful that finally, we will soon be required to make sure our babies and children are protected while they are riding in vehicles. It's also great that Joie, one of the best brands trusted by parents around the world for this purpose, is also now available here in the Philippines."

Just how important are car seats for babies and kids? According to the World Health Organization, a good car safety system with rear-facing restraint can reduce the risk of injury for children aged 0-4 by 80 to 90%. Compared to having only a seat belt, where the risk of injury for children is reduced only by 32%.

“I know that here in the Philippines, a lot of parents are not used to putting their babies and toddlers in car seats, but in other countries it has been required for a long time already, because of the safety factor. So it’s about time that we focus on keeping our children safe when travelling,” says Prats-Yambao. “Using the Joie car seat gives me peace of mind, and greater mobility too, while riding in the car. At least I don’t have to carry the baby all the time while on the road – which is less hassle for me, and keeps the baby calm and happy,” she adds.

Since 2011, Joie has been making safety products for babies and toddlers worldwide. Popular in the UK, Europe and Middle East, the company’s high quality products are now available in the Philippines through their authorized distributor, Europlay Distributor Co. Inc.

Camille Prats Yambao recommends Joie's Every stage car seat, which received the 2017 Mother & Baby Gold Best Car Seat (Group 1+) and 2016 Best Baby and Toddler Gear Consumer Choice: Gold (Group 0-1-2-3 Car Seat). The Every Stage car seat is the ultimate transporter that makes growing up easy from birth to twelve years. Grows every which way for every which stage. Beginning as a rearward facing seat from birth to 18kg and converting to a forward facing seat from 9-36kg.

Camille currently uses and loves her newest Pact Lite stroller. An exclusive one-hand fast and flat fold stroller package. One of the smallest when collapsed. Comes with a custom carry bag and strap, ready to travel even on an airplane.

“I love to carry my baby, but let's face it – when you go to the mall and you have to walk very long distances, carrying 15 kilograms or more for even just a few minutes can put stress on my back, which can actually be prevented when we use the stroller, so I really love to use it. When we visit our friends or go to other people’s houses, the baby stays in the stroller, and has her own space instead of putting her on the sofa or wherever,” shares Prats Yambao.

For the young mother, the best part is that the products made by Joie are light enough to carry, quick to store into the car trunk or small spaces, and are built to last for a very long time. “Safety begins with Joie” is the company’s motto, and for Camille Prats Yambao, that promise convinced her to partner with them.

“You can't really put a price on your children's safety, but I'm glad that Joie’s products are cost-effective and definitely worth it," she says with confidence.

    1. Okay then...
      Paano pala sa jeep? Sa bus? MRT?

    2. Sa mga napuntahan kong bansa, wala rin silang car seats/ special place for kids sa trains and other public transpos. It’s the parent’s choice/responsibility to bring their own car seats for their children.

  2. Paano yung mga naka motorsiklo angkas ang buong pamilya

    1. Syempre mali yun. Overloading yun.

    2. Matagal nang batas yan. Bawal talaga iangkas ang buong pamilya tapos wala pang helmet. Hindi lang nagiging matigas ang mga police sa ganyan kasi sila din, pasaway!

  3. Higpitan na din nila ang laws about children on motorcycles/scooters! Most of the time yung adults may helmet pero yung bata wala. Kaloka. It's just completely unsafe.

  4. Haay naku Pilipins.... napaka slow ng system natin dyan. Dapat safety first para sa mga anak natin.

  7. Kung afford bumili ng kotse dapat afford din bumili ng carseat. Safety first!!

  8. Hay salamat!!!! It really annoys me when parents post pics of their kids with their yayas sa backseat while the car is moving, na minsan nakatayo pa yung mga toddlers. Napaka irresponsible. Paupuin man lang ang anak di pa magawa.

  9. Aside from your kiddos travelling safer in car seats, they stay upright and in place when they sleep. They are comfortable and they don't fall down. Most of all, them being in place helps the driver focus on driving.

  10. Also make it law that every car has a seat belt for every seat. Sa probinsiya nakikita ko yung seat sa gitna walang seat belt mga vans.

  11. Dapat lang and pakihigpitan na din ang pag sunod ng traffic rules. I had a bad experience crossing a pedestrian ako pa binusinahan, tinayuan ko nga sa gitna at tinuro ang guhit. kainis

  12. tama, kasi pag naaksidente lipad ang mga babies kung walang car seat, hindi dapat naka sakay sa harap ng sasakyan.

  13. Ayan dapat lang. mga anak ko nasanay sa atin ng dinala ko sa ibang bansa ayun iyakang iyakan dahil ayaw nila ng car seat at seat belt

  18. Dapat naman talaga! Common sense lang yan eh. Why now lang? Parang issue ng parking at car ownership. Talaga naman dapat may parking bago umawra ng auto. Prevention is better than cure pagdating sa lahat ng mga bagay ateng lalo na sa safety ng public lalo na ng family natin

    ReplyDelete
  19. Pinoy talaga..may maganda na ngang pinaglalaban ‘yong tao, hahanapan parin? kayo naman kaya ang magpromote sa public transpo..ang siste, demand lang ng demand? crab mentality nga naman 🙄

    ReplyDelete
  20. Di ata applicable sa pilipinas, kasi yun jeeps, tricycles, kulig lig... Hindi pwede talaga magiging safe sa bata.

    Magiging to be implemented ito para sa middle class (yun mayaman exempted kasi takot lang nila hulihin). Parang seat belt law sa mga middle class lang yun batas yun nasa jeeps, buses etc di kasali.

  21. Pano kaya pag nasa uber or grab? 🤔

    1. Kailangan magdala la ng sarili mong car seat. Iaasa mo pa driver.

      Delete
    2. @sg sa mga uber at grab may special options para sa passenger wirh kids - either may dala silang carseat or may insurance sila for passenger with kids - kaya extra careful and alert ang driver na may kasamang bata

      Delete
  22. Mas safe talaga ang mga bata pag naka car seat. Kailangan lang ilagay sa ayos at mahigpit ang sear belt at di hugs ung mismong car seat. Otherwise useless din. Common mistakes ng parents kahit sa mainland na bansa at dati na requirement ang car seat para sa mga bata. Sana lang malinaw at buo ang impormasyon. Ang daming posts sa ig na naka car seat ang mga anak ng artista pero ang luluwag naman ng seat belt. Yung nasa gitnang buckle dapat nasa chest area sa ilalim ng kili-kili.

  23. 50 years too late sa pinas.

  24. dito naman sa US or at least sa state namin di required ang car seats sa mga taxi at tren or bus. kasi di naman long distance driving. pero pag private vehicles required sya.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Too late pinas. Required ang carseats at seatbelts dito saka lang pwedeng gumamit ng lap-sash seatbelt ang batang may height na 145cm or taller. Strict ang laws ng Australia pag nahuli ka na hindi nagpa-follow ng rules may demerit points kana may huge fine ka pa.
