It is not accepting my code, am i doing anything wrong?

the evolva lasts til about 11 years.
we have the first class plus and like the eclipse it sits on a plastic base so it is elevated and we find it difficult to get child into without bumping head on roof!

For an 11mth old, I would go with the eclipse. If its like mine you should be able to recline the seat back with one hand, so when they nod off, their head wont be flopping forwards, which happens when the seat is upright.
Useful feature as mine nods off as soon as she is in the car, and the sleeping position looks very comfortable in the eclipse.

Own this ( well the plus version with the click ) - WORST ever seat for fitting absolute pain!!! BUT when fitter is comfy and sturdy.

Has your 6 month old outgrown their rear facing seat already? If not, remember its safer to keep them that way as long as you can.

Good price, my MIL has one of these in her car for my daughter and I am sure she paid much more!

have one of these as a spare. once its fitted its fab! especially the 2 click safety bit so you know the straps are tight enough (but please makesure you check yourself!)

have two of these seats n paid lot more, would def recommend as comfy n lots safety features/protection, hot

Bought 3 of these before Christmas; two were the plus version for our second car and the other was to replace a rear facing. £60 is a bargain, the Plus version is £20 more at Johnnie Lizzle but TBH I don't think it's worth it. You get the adjustable side protection (which only adjusts very slightly) and the click thingy which is useless - you will already know how tight to pull the straps without the chair telling you!

Agreed - we left our two in rear facing as long as possible (just over a year in both cases); I don't know why people rush putting their kids in forward facing seats unless it's a genuine reason.

I am a tad confused with this seat. I was looking at getting the Maxi Cosi Pebble, Family Fix base and Maxi Cost Pearl for my soon to be new born. Would something like this be a better purchase? Having gone to Kiddicare I was just overwhelmed by the amount of choice. There wasn't a sales person insight to help so came home more puzzled then before.

good seat & future proof my only issue with it is I find it hard to secure on with the car's seat belt

Don't do it! Save your money and get a much safer rearward facing seat that fits them from birth until the age of 4 - saves money (I learnt this with Maxi Cosi - they have just bought out a new family fix base so if I want my little one to be rearward facing, I will need to get a brand new base!). Look at the Britax Dualfix (£340ish inc isofix base) or if you are on a budget, the Hauck Varioguard (£150 inc isofix base). Wish I had done my research before wasting money on a Maxi Cosi trio.

Thanks for bringing the Britax Dualfix to my attention. I only looked at the Maxi Cost trio as all friends and family have used it in the past and rave on about it. The Britax Dualfix comes to a similar price to the Maxi Cosi trio so within my budget. What I don't get is that when you collect the baby from hospital or when out and about in the early days I see babies being transported in the Maxi Cosi Cabriofix/Pebble. Does the Britax Dualfix detach from the base and come with a handle? The product video didn't make it clear. I will pop down to my local mothercare to see how it fits with the wifes car as the seat will spend most of its time there.

I ordered this last tuesday when it was the same price and still waiting on delivery as it went out of stock, so don't buy if you need it in a hurry. Amazon have it for £69.99 every couple of days, only got it from mothercare because of the app discount.

No, this seat is from 9 months upwards! And it is forward facing.

A baby must be rear facing, it is safer, and it is best if you keep them rear facing as long as possible. Most infant carriers will last til child is 12-18 months old.

You said you are looking to get 'Maxi Cosi Pebble, Family Fix base and Maxi Cost Pearl' do you need both carseats or is it just one you are going to choose?

The Dualfix is good but will only rear face to 18kg. The Joie Stages for £129 mothercare.com/Joi…tml is also rear-facing to 18kg then can be used forward facing to 25kg.

I have the plus version of this seat and it seems nice and comfy and well built. The pull out cup holder is useless though and you can't use the decline feature while it's strapped in.

The Britax website says Birth – 4y.

I was looking at the Pebble for 0-9 months and then upgrade to the Pear for 9 months+ and the family fix allows both of these seats to be easily fitted in the car without the need for a seatbelt and constant adjustment.

From the Mothercare website, it quotes:

Suitable for children from 9kg (20lbs) to a maximum weight of 36kg/79lbs) – approx 9 months to 11 years old.

Besides, a new born wouldn't be able to support their head yet so this won't be suitable until they older. I personally went with the following: Maxi Cosi cabrio -> Britax Evolva 123 plus. Two seats to last through their entire childhood. You're looking at another car seat after the Maxi Cosi Pearl if you intend to go that route.

I think we got out wires crossed. I was referring to the Britax Dualfix mentioned by Mightymoosie which seems to cover Birth - 4y. The cabriofix and Britax Evolva 123 plus sounds like a great suggestion as covers all basis long-term. Do these both connect via isofix or via seatbelt? Thanks everyone for pitching in with their help. Such a minefield getting car seat kits.

Great seat, we have three of these and paid much much more! Fab price

Please get a rear facing seat! rearfacing.co.uk/

Sorry must of missed your post regarding the Britax Dualfix.

The Maxi Cosi Cabriofix can use the isofix (requires an additional base), however the Britax Evolva 123 doesn't and is seat belt only. I don't think there is much in the way of group 123 seats that are isofix compatible, simple because of how the installation system would contradict each other. Normally when the child reaches the age of around 4 or 15kg they would start to use the car's 3 point seat belt rather than the 5 point harness on the actual child seat itself.

I would suggest, as another poster said, do not buy into the maxi cosi trio. Get your first infant seat to get you through the first year or so and then choose a new seat when needed. New seats do come on the market and prices change. Did you look at the Joie Stages?

Thanks for your advice guys. The logical sense is to not get roped into the maxi cosi trio kit and just grab a cabriofix to get us through the first year and make a call in 6 to 9 months time on our next setup. Great advice as always from the community.

Thanks, was in need of a replacement car seat

I was in store today and was told that a new law is coming out that a baby has to be on the rare facing until 15 month. So might need to plan carefully if you are thinking to use it for next baby.

Hi Nina688, the new i-Size regs for rear facing seats do not apply to seats like the Britax 1-2-3 i.e non-ISOFIX.

Thank you. I hope it is the thing that the shop assistance was talking about, but she did say it is a new law that maybe out in two years.

I was looking at this for my son at about 12 months but it was far too big. Even now at 16 months I think it still big. I went for the eclipse.
