How to Put Doona in Car Seat

January 28, 2024

Doona is an infant car seat and stroller in one, with built-in wheels that tuck out of the way when not in use. It’s designed to support newborns from 4 pounds, and includes an infant insert that helps your baby regulate their body temperature and prevent overheating.

To install the Doona, first secure the base in your vehicle using the lower anchor points or a seat belt, following the specific instructions outlined in the car seat manual. You’ll know it’s properly secured when you hear a click and see the green indicator light turn on. Next, position the Doona and click it into place. Be sure to secure the lap belt and tighten it as snugly as possible. You can also attach the tether strap if your vehicle has one.

My Doona Base Feels Loose

If the base feels loose, there could be a few causes. One possibility is that the latches aren’t lined up correctly. Another possibility is that there’s something blocking the latches, such as a floor mat or blanket. If the issue persists, you may need to contact Doona customer support or your retailer for guidance.

Another potential cause of a loose base is that the base’s components have worn out over time. It’s important to periodically check and tighten the base’s screws and bolts to ensure your child’s safety. In some cases, it’s necessary to replace the base altogether. You can find replacements at your local Doona retailer or online.
