Importance Of Child Car Booster

New born babies cannot sit up right because of their bone structure’s weaknesses. Body weight of a child's head is 1/3, but in adults, the ratio s to 1/14.

Likewise according to the results of same tests, if there is crush of 48 km speed and an infant sits on an adult’s lap, baby exposes to a pressure of 2.5tons. It is the same situation with falling from the third floor of a building!
