Hi

Needed as our 5 month old is too long for the cabrio fix she has at the moment!!!

Its the one with the swivel base which is a must.

Please do NOT even CONSIDER buying a forward facing car seat for a 5 month old!!!!!!!!!

I'm a trained Britax car seat fitter and a baby shouldn't go into a forward facing car seat until they are at LEAST 9kg (20lb) and can sit unaided for approx 15-30 mins.

The Cabriofix has been designed to take babies from birth to 13kg (approx 12-15 months) and the longer your baby can stay rear wards the SAFER she is. If you are involved in an accident at the moment, her head, neck and spine are fully protected by the back of the seat....once she goes forward facing it would be like you or I and not wanting to scare you you but whiplash would be the absolute least of your worries. At present her head is very heavy in relation to the rest of her body and you are looking at a VERY serious neck injury or worse...........

It is totally usual for Mum's to think the legs are too long for their infant carrier but so long as her head is within the shell of the car seat she is SAFE....far safer than if you put her into a forward facing car seat before she's ready.....and to look at it another way what would you rather have...broken leg or broken neck? It's not a nice way to look at it but that's the reality.

If you don't want to take my word for it PLEASE go and see a trained fitter at Mothercare or Halfords.

i thought the 1st carseat my son had looked cramped so bought a Britax 1st class as its much larger and goes both ways-my son was reversed til age 2

luvvlychocolate is quite right tho..and in some countries they travel rearward til age 5 or 6 as safer.

Thanks for the advice, but i never stated that we were going to put her in it yet?? I was just saying she is too long

This is the next seat we want for her so was just asking.

I didnt realise it would bring up such a reaction!

You did actually state
Needed as our 5 month old is too long for the cabrio fix she has at the moment

From that, I don't think it was wrong of me to conclude that you were intending on putting her in it straight away.....as a result I was only giving you some advice which you appear to have taken the wrong way. I was only trying to help and offer advice in the interests of the safety of your baby, sorry it wasn't welcome!

As i stated above i thanked you for your advice, im not going to get into an argument as there is more to life than arguing.

they have some on ebay..bebe confort axiss is the same but goes cheaper.

I wasn't arguing.....I was merely apologising :|

You sound SOOOO like me and have actually contacted both BBC (Eastenders) and ITV (Emmerdale) for incorrect usage of infant carriers in the past....my problem is I can't switch off and even if the advice isn't welcome I always hope that perhaps something sinks in and that it will stop someone's baby being seriously hurt or worse....

I've no doubt I shall continue to go wading in with the advice....can't help myself and couldn't live with my conscience if I sat back and said nothing! :)
