Car Seats for Babies and Toddlers Will Now Be Required in PH

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

(MANILA, Philippines, JANUARY 17, 2018) – 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.
