Mothercare ISOFIX Combination With Car Seat Red £50

35
Found 5th Jan
Combination car seat that can be used from birth using the ISOFIX point, designed to last your little one until they are 4 years old (approx).

Don’t think I’ve seen an isofix base with seat this cheap. Plus has a 2 year guarantee.

OMG I paid 80 for blue one 2 weeks ago.
Reviews aren't great
Just an FYI ​​It's a combination seat. Rear faces only to 13kg same as an infant carrier and then can be used forward facing. Just in case anyone jumps to conclusions
fantastic price. ordered. Hoping will take up less room than my current maxi cosi family fix
Do you have to use the leg throughout the chairs life or only when rear facing?
Can anyone recommend a rear facing seat for my 8 month old who has almost outgrown the Traven system? Looking for a slim one as I have 3 kids.

If you are on Facebook look for 'rear facing-the way forward' lots of advice and you can put the question to them. People who actually have been in your situation.

I've joined that car seat group where I had to wait weeks for my post to go live and then all the responses were rubbish. Had to end up going to several stores to see how to fit current set up in the car.

​The Britax max way is one of the slimmest.
The joie tilt is also slim but is quite a small seat you are unlikely to get until 2 or 3 out of it.
It's unusual to out grow the infant seat at only 8 months. They should be suitable to either 13kg or 15kg depending on the brand / model. Once the infant insert is removed it should be Ok until his head gets towards the top. The little legs being bent isn't a sign of outgrowing it. Though if he big for his age and isn't asleep when you park the car he will be more comfortable in the larger rear facing seat so no harm keeping an eye out.
The Britax max fix is also slim for an isofix but with a belted seat you can push it over a few cm with isofix you can't. Depends how tight you are for space.

​The leg is because it is isofix not because of being rear facing. It gives more stability against rotation as the seat is only anchored at the bottom with isofix. Belted seats use the cars own shoulder belt to anchor towards the top of the seat.
There are some seats that use isofix with a top tether strap instead of a leg. These are not so heavy to move between cars and are suitable for cars with under floor storage

That damned insert! On my 3rd kid and totally forgot to remove that this time!!

She's in a cybex atom which sits on an isofix base but her feet are touching the seat forcing her to bend her knees and not able to stretch out. I'll remove that insert before I go off and spend money too soon. Thanks for the reminder!!

​Most babies don't mind having their knees bent. An extended rearward seat will require toddlers to bend their knees too but then again forward facing seats their knees are just bent down rather than up.
If an older baby is giving out in the infant seat it's more likely to be that they are bored with the lack of view. They can see out the side and rear window from the rear facing toddler seat.
Oos
Brilliant reduction. Is there anything else better at this price point?
I need to get a new seat but it doesn't have to start from birth like this does ( I don't need group 0)
Group 1/2 or Group 1/2/3 would be better for my current needs (baby is 15 months old).
Not too bothered with isofix, I like the idea if its top teather as the leg would get in the way of a pram that usually goes in the rear passengers footwell.

It's not very clear
OOS
This whole area is tricky, and potentially expensive, and what I'm about to mention is an EU directive so with Brexit who knows - however, 'isize' is the newest standard for car seats. Isofix is a part of isize, but it incorporates other changes in the design (e.g. prioritising rearward facing, additional side impact protection, different test dummies). At some point sooner than later (it's a bit unclear when) it's likely older style seats will stop being sold. Expectation is older-style ones will remain legal to use for a period after that, but not necessarily forever.

I don't want to put people off - this is a great price for an isofix seat - but maybe if you are hoping to have several children and use the same chair for quite a few years, you might want to think about an isize chair (but you're looking at minimum £200 for one).

​Will you need the pram that's in the footwell if it isn't to cart about the infant seat?
I would suggest considering a smaller stroller such as a zapp because items loose in the footwell can be dangerous in an accident as they get dislodged and thrown about.
Fingers crossed you will never be in an accident but a pram would give anyone a fair knock.
OOS. expired!

It'll be a very long time yet before non-iSize seats become illegal to use (bear in mind that r44/03 legislation was introduced in 1995 and seats adhering to those regs are still legal to use now) so I wouldn't be put off a non-iSize seat, especially when some of those seats (not this one mind) are actually safer than iSize seats.

If LO is about to outgrow infant carrier at 8 months he's obviously on the higher centiles so I'd suggest you look at 25kg seats as otherwise they'll be hitting the 18kg limit that most harnessed seats have before they're ready to go into a hbb.
Diono Radian 5 and britax 2 way elite are both slim 25kg seats.

I've heard good things about the Diono before. Thanks!

Sorry, its a stroller not a pram. But when collapsed its longer than the width of the boot (skoda fabia) but does fit neatly across the footwells. I agree its not ideal, I'd rather it be in the boot.
i'm looking at the Joie Every Stage Group 0-1-2-3 Car Seat

The Joie Every Stage Group 0-1-2-3 Car Seat in Red grows with your child from birth to 12 years. This 4-in-1 convertible car seat adapts to fit your child at each stage, meeting every road safety standard you’ll encounter as your little one grows up.

May be worth popping into your local mothercare. My dad went in to see if they had any of the seats recently posted on HUKD that we’re OOS online.

He ended up getting the Cosatto Hug ISOFIX “open box” for £150 (50% off). The salesman was just opening it to put it on display to clear, so was really new

They were also clearing some display units, like the Cyblex Pallas, currently £190 on their site but offered extra 20% off. Unfortunately my little one is used to straps and didn’t take to the buffer type of seat when she tried my nephews one.
