I know there is controversy at the moment with rear and forward facing but this is a Group 1 car seat designed for weight between 9kg- 18kg so you could still put a toddler in this comfortably if you didn't want to put your little one in it at 9kg.

Height adjustable 5-point safety harness with one pull adjustment

Side Impact Protection with deep, softly padded side wings

Unique Pitch Control system reduces the child's forward movement within the seat

Multi-recline positions--seat adjusts without disturbing your child

Spring loaded belt locking mechanism allows easy installation

What controversy?



link for you

this seat is also one (of very few) that is approved to be used onboard an aircraft, as it can be fitted using a 2-point lap belt

I have one of these for my little boy and it is fantastic.

Great seat, good buy.

In that article it says its a legal requirement to have a rear facing seat up to 9 months. So would I get in trouble if I keep my baby in a front facing seat if younger than 9 months?

You can have forward or rear facing seat from 9 kg

if you kept your baby in one I would say so, they're supposed to come out of those seats when not travelling, lol

I think it's based on weight or age whichever comes first. My little one will probably have to go in one before 9 months because he weighs 8 kg now and they say from 9kg for forward facing approximately 9 months. Will keep him in the baby car seat for as long as I can though.

I have one of these - good quality seat but my child tends to slump forward when sleeping - even when its reclined.

I have this seat for my daughter and it's been great for us. I paid about £75 for it at the time so this is a great price.

This one is from 9kg it tells you on the car seats. Group 0/1 you have to rear face it until 9kg. This is group 1 so will be forward facing.if unsure always check the spec on the car seat.

I looked at this in toys r us yesterday and thought the same. The lady said that the group 0+-1 seats recline more because they are designed from birth. The group 1 car seats tend to have not as much recline. Apparently!

please not to adjust seat you have to unfasten first that's what I got told at Halfords but I still bought it as is was a tenner,

definitely try and keep your little ones in their infant carriers until they've outgrown it by height (head at top of seat) or weight (13kg for group 0+ seats).
Although you can put them forward facing once they've hit 9kg, it's much safer for them to be rear facing as long as possible.

Absolutely, my little on is very long and is getting very big for his car seat but I am considering buying a group 0+ so he can stay rear facing for a. Bit longer.

Thanks. I've never heard about it

I really like this seat as it declines very easily when the child is strapped in. You don't have to unfasten them to do it. Mine was about £80 when i bought it!
