Yes, the Stokke® iZi Go™ car seat is compatible with these Stokke® strollers: Stokke® Xplory®, Stokke® Crusi™ and Stokke® Scoot™.
Experts recommend that a newborn be kept in a car seat for no more than 30 mins. at a time during the period from birth up to 3-4 months of age, as the tilted position may affect development of the spine as well as oxygen intake of the child.
The Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® car seat offers the additional advantage of an adjustable back rest, with the horizontal position meant to be used outside of the car. This means the Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe®™ can be used as a carrycot to a limited extent, for about an hour at a time. After 4 months your baby will be able to sit up for longer periods and can be kept in the car seat for up to 2 hrs.
In general, we recommend always allowing the child short breaks when travelling for a longer period and keeping an eye on your child seated in the car seat as much as traffic allows.
When in the box, the Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® car seat weighs 7.9 kg and the dimensions are 74 x 35 x 46 cm.
The dimensions of the product itself are:
Reclining position 73x34x46 cm
Carry position 68x66x46 cm
Car position 70x60x46 cm
Both car seats are designed for superior comfort and safety. The main differences are in the size and weight, with Stokke® iZi Go™ being lighter and more compact than iZiSleep™. Stokke® iZi Go™ is also compatible with all Stokke® strollers, while iZiSleep™ cannot be used together with the Stokke® Scoot™ stroller. iZiSleep™, on the other hand, has a unique feature of a reclinable back rest when used outside of the car, allowing for extra comfort and the possibility to keep the child in the seat for longer than the generally recommended maximum of two hours. The latter also results in a higher UV protection factor of 50 for the iZiSleep™ canopy, whereas that of Stokke® iZi Go™ has a UV factor of 15. Finally, the colour options differ between the two car seats. The iZiSleep™ seat unit comes in a single colour, Dark Navy, with a choice of canopy in most of the colours from the Stokke® stroller range. The Stokke® iZi Go™, conversely, comes in most of the colour varieties from the Stokke® stroller collection, but with a canopy in a single, neutral colour, namely grey.
In principle Stokke® advises against buying used car seats, since a number of uncertainties are involved. Never buy a second-hand child car seat if you do not know the history of the product. A seat that is worn or has been in a collision will no longer provide the same level of protection in the event of a future collision. Also, the requirements for the latest standard for approval, ECE R44.04, are stricter than those of the previous standard. The seat should be approved in accordance with the latest version of the standard in order to provide optimal protection. Check that there are certification marks on the seat, that the instructions for use are supplied, and that no parts are damaged. A car seat should not be used for more than five years in total. Always place the safety of your child first.
The Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® is heavier than the average car seat, but this is for very good reasons. For one, the Stokke® iZi Sleep™ has been designed to meet the highest international safety standards and its superior robustness offers optimal protection and safety for your child on the road. Also, the Stokke® iZi Sleep™ car seat offers the unique feature of a reclinable back support, which means you can choose the most comfortable position for your child at any time when using the seat outside of the car. The required mechanism also adds something to the weight.
Many of our customers have praised the Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® for its sturdiness, its solid fit behind the seat belt and its unique reclinable back support. Also, the fact that it is meant to be placed onto the Stokke® Xplory® stroller chassis when used outside of the car means it does not in fact have to be carried around a lot. Instead the Xplory® chassis will do most of the carrying for you.
When the child exceeds 13 kg or when its head reaches over the top of the seat, it has outgrown the Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® car seat.
The Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® car seat will fit in nearly all car makes and models, as long as they possess 3-point seat belts ("one strap across the waist, another across the chest"). To be absolutely sure, it is always a good idea to bring your car along when purchasing a car seat, so you can ask the sales staff to help you install it as a test.
It is common nowadays to use a so-called Isofix Base, a stationary frame which makes it easier to insert a car seat into the car. To facilitate the installation of the Stokke® iZi Sleep™ car seat, a corresponding Isofix Base is also available from your Stokke® retailer. We also recommend to check if your car make and model is compatible with the Isofix Base.
However, the Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® car seat can be used safely even without the isofix base. The iZi Sleep™ is uniquely designed to make full use of both the upper and lower section of the car's seat belt, and is therefore very safe and secure.
The Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® car seat is approved according to international car seat standard ECE R44.04. (latest United Nations safety standard for child restraint seats).
The Stokke® iZi Sleep™ by BeSafe® car seat is compatible with all models of the Stokke® Xplory® stroller chassis.
