Car seats do not automatically need to be replaced following a minor crash. A minor crash is one in which ALL of the following apply: The vehicle was able to be driven away from the crash site; the vehicle door nearest the car seat was not damaged; none of the passengers in the vehicle sustained any injuries in the crash; if the vehicle has air bags, the air bags did not deploy during the crash; and there is no visible damage to the car seat.

How do I install Doona on a short seat?
The rule of thumb is that 80% of the car seat base (at the absolute minimum) must be on the seat to be properly secured. If more than 20% of the car seat base is hanging over the edge of the seat, it will not be secure. It is also important that the front seat does not push up against the car seat. We recommend getting a Certified Car Seat Technician in your area to determine whether the Doona can be secured safely in your vehicle.
Does Doona come with Side Impact Protection?
Doona has a 3-layer Side-Impact Protection: Legs, EPS Foam and Memory Foam Head Rest.
- Front Legs’ unique Honey-Comp construction is designed to absorb energy during side impact.
- EPS foam is wrapped completely under the Textile Set which absorbs the energy during impact.
- Side Impact Protection Head Rest that has memory foam on the sides. Memory foam offers comfort by molding to the shape of the head. Memory foam resists at the time of impact to offer added layer of side impact protection.
