This Britax Eclipse in black thunder is the cheapest that I can find anywhere. It was £84.99 then reduced to £69.99 but using the code you get it for £59.99 and also free home delivery too. It has fab reviews (4.8 / 5 over 23 reviews) and is recommended for small cars as the base is really slim and doesn't take up as much room as other group 1 car seats. Suitable from 9 months to 4 years (9kg - 18kg)

It's currently £85 in Halfords, £80 at Uber kids, £70 at Pramworld and there are a few second hand ones on eBay buy it now for £50!

Thanks, we are looking, but I thought we are supposed to keep them facing backwards now?

advise is so confusing

The guide is rear facing until 15 months - this goes up to age 4 - personal choice I guess. I know my little one would go bananas if I tried to put him rear facing now :)

I won't start the usual debate of rear vs forwards so all I'll say is do your research then make an informed choice.

The guidelines say rear facing until 15 months but it is far safer to keep them rear facing as long as possible, at least 4 ideally 6 years. There's plenty of research out there but the fact is, rear facing is many times safer in the event of a crash. It's up to you what you want to do with that information. in the rest of Europe (particularly Scandinavia where they take vehicle safety very seriously) it is the norm to stay rear facing until 25kg.
Google Swedish plus test and make an informed decision. In my opinion price should be a secondary consideration after safety.

Bought this for £60 in mothercare in Hull a week ago (in black) - they said it was on special and was usually £130!
I also looked at the first class (which is rear facing until 13kg) but it wouldn't fit in my car properly!
Not sure if it is a national offer though.

Anyone know how heavy is the car seat? I am looking to buy one for my 16 month old on our road trip to Spain. So will first have to fly the car seat from London to Spain..

In theory price should be secondary to safety obviously, but many of the long term rear facing seats are cost prohibitive to the average family. This car seat is very good for the money and far superior to many cheap seats. It's narrow and fits many cars. The first class won't fit my car, and at 14 months my little one is very uncomfortable in her carrier first baby seat. I don't have £180 plus for a car seat sadly. All my older children used this and it was great. Car seats should be appropriately priced, it's the manufacturers putting price before safety.


i disagree that the manufacturers put price before safety. They obviously need to make a profit and the development costs involved are huge. I think you pretty much get what you pay for, and the safety test results suggest the same.
I appreciate that some people can't afford to spend £150 on a car seat but would question how many people that genuinely applies to. I would imagine a lot of people who claim they can't afford it are walking round with a £400 phone in their pocket, so for a lot of people it comes down to priorities.

With which part do you disagree? that generally speaking the safest seats are more expensive, or that many people have their priorities wrong when it comes to spending money to protect your child? It costs an average of less than £1 per week for the safest car seats you can buy and I don't believe this is cost prohibitive for the majority of parents.

I am not here to argue. I disagree with your comments, you are very lucky to be able to afford the top range. Many of us are not. This is not because we don't care, it's because the seats are so expensive. Many other countries rearface till 4, and the seats are appropriately priced. The companies are ripping us off and putting profit before safety of children. The mark up on these seats is huge. And where do you get the figure of £1 per week? There's no payment option plan like a phone or a computer (if need be). I have 3 children in car seats and they are very expensive.
I'm sorry but lots of people I know are good parents but can't afford the new seats.

The £1/week is from the fact that these seats typically last 4 years, so 208 weeks.
If you genuinely can't afford a rear facing seat then that's unfortunate, I just hope you're not unlucky enough to be involved in an accident. My point was not about you specifically, but more about people in general who claim not to be able to afford a safer seat yet still find money for holidays, iPhones, etc. There is also a lot of ignorance surrounding the issue and I think the government should be doing more to keep children safe in cars and educate people about the dangers of forward facing toddlers.

Also driving an old people carrier that is worth only £300 itself, there are lots of car seats that don't fit.
I agree with your sentiment, but strongly feel the seats should be more affordable. The car seat that this post is about is very good. It also fits lap belts as well as 3 point seat belts.
It seems you are just assuming most people are privileged and well off.


You're correct. the car seat in this post is very good, unless you happen to have a head on crash at 40mph which will probably result in a paralysed or dead child. But yes, apart from that it's very good indeed.
I don't believe everyone is well off, we are far from well off but were prepared to make sacrifices elsewhere to ensure that our child is as safe as practicable when in a car.
Most people can easily make savings by not buying gimmicky baby accessories like cot sensors etc and buying second hand clothes etc rather than insisting they buy from the likes of Boden.

What an extremely odd and judgemental post. You have no interest in this post, you have come here to be rude. I certainly have no cot sensor, in fact I have not even got a baby monitor, because personally I think they are ridiculous and unnecessary in most modern houses and for most healthy children. I am genuinely getting confused by your ranting.
My daughter rearfaced till 15 months, my son till aged 2. What are you so stressy about? What age are you suggesting rear facing until?
The law is changing to only 15 months? My children fit their first size (group 0) car seats until then easily. It's a 13kg weight limit.
I've then purchased an eclipse.
What exactly is your issue? Are you saying we should rearface till 4? Are you simply just cross that people use this seat at all?
When I was in mothercare collecting my seat, the lady said that the new advice was children rearface till 15 months then forward face. So if my daughter sits forward facing in this from 15 months till 4 years what on earth am I doing wrong and why is this any different to any other legal forward facing seat on the market?
All people who forward face their children from 15 months surely face this risk regardless of car seat? Please could you be clear what your point is when you are saying that using this seat and being hit at 40 will result in paralysis or death? Even the expensive seats forward face from 15kg?
Ah just realised you are pro rear facing till 25kg, and yes I know all the research, I agree but sadly this country is not up to date with that. Good for you and your child, but maybe just go elsewhere as you are just arguing for the hell of it...


I assumed, obviously incorrectly, that when you stated in one of your own posts that you'd bought a baby monitor/sensor that you were telling the truth. Obviously you were not.

I have an interest in this only because other people may read it and you are continually posting inaccurate information.
You have repeatedly said that this is a very good car seat. A car seat has one job and that is to save a child's life in the event of a crash. Front facing seats are not very good at this job, particularly when the occupant is a toddler. As such describing any front facing seat as very good is simply not true.

The laws on these things take years, if not decades to catch up with research. And unfortunately many children will die as a result of front facing before any laws are changed (i-size seats have to stay rear facing until 15 months but this regulation has not replaced the old one, it just runs alongside it).
Manufacturers are ahead of the law and already making seats that are safer for their occupants.
I know a lot of people are ignorant of the facts and research (not helped by large stores like Mothercare giving inaccurate information).
If just one person reading this goes on to educate themselves about the benefits of rear facing and buys a rear facing seat then it could potentially save a life, which in my mind can only be a good thing, even if it costs you an extra £100 or so.
