Why Is that? Leg room?

Yes, baby gets too big and legs need to hang down. If you one of those parents who feel child must be rear facing as long as possible, then there are other chairs

Nope-you can use this rear facing for a long time. Children can cross their legs or put them on the backrest. Rear facing is far safer than fwd facing

EDIT: APPARENTLY YOU CANNOT USE THIS REAR FACING FOR TODDLERS. WHO THE HELL KNOWS

No, legroom is never an issue. It’s more comfortable and better for a child’s circulation to have their legs supported by a rear facing seat than to have them dangling in mid air from the front of a forward facing seat.

HOWEVER you must not exceed the 10kg weight limit for rear facing in this specific child seat. The 10kg is there for a reason, the seat has not been tested for rear facing beyond that weight.

Rear facing is far safer, you are right, but this seat doesn’t even allow a child to remain rear facing as long as an infant carrier baby seat would (they all go to 13kg). You can only use this seat rear facing until the baby weighs 10kg (about 22lbs). Therefore I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone because a child that weighs 10kg isn’t old enough to use a forward facing seat. I’m talking in science terms here, legally this seat can be used forward facing as soon as the baby weighs 9kg, but unfortunately legal doesn’t equal safest option when it comes to child seats.
If it's a safety issue and been proven in other countries why as per usual does are government ignore it, the saying if it ain't broke don't fix it shouldn't apply when children's safety is at question. It should be if we're not sure let's not risk it!. Bunch of numptys..

This is a combination car seat. It's a combination of a rear facing infant seat and a forward facing toddler seat.
It is NOT an extended rear facing seat. It is only an extended rear facing seat can be used for toddlers rear facing.
If anyone wants to rear face as long as possible this would be an unsuitable buy as it actual can only be used rear facing for LESS TIME than the majority of infant seats which in to 13kg not 10

I am probably going to cancel my order. My girl is 1year 4 months and I want her rear facing.

Foward facing this is fine
Had this car seat for a while. Very good facing forward and has a tilt on it for when little one falls asleep. However it does not fit the majority of cars rear facing. Definitely worth a fitting at Mothercare before you consider buying it if you want to use it rear facing.

The Joie range of seatbelt-fitted seats are the best value for money rear facing ones. The Joie Stages is the most expensive but will fit most cars, the Steadi is cheaper and the Tilt cheaper still but they sometimes don’t fit securely in cars where the seatbelt buckles aren’t right back at the ‘crease’ of the vehicle seat (where the backrest meets the flat part that you sit on) or where the seatbelt buckle is on a long stalk.

You can’t predict when a collision might happen, and most accidents do happen close to home. It doesn’t take much to injure a vulnerable baby if they are in a forward facing seat - I’ve written this many times before, but a couple of years ago there was a programme on the BBC called lifesavers, a real-life thing at an A&E department somewhere in London. A couple were brought in with their 10 month old baby after a fairly minor accident at less than 30mph in a built-up area. Mum and dad possibly had a bit of whiplash, but were otherwise unhurt and able to walk into the hospital. Unfortunately their 10 month old baby, who had been in her forward facing car seat, was not so lucky. She was kept sedated for 48 hours because the doctors were worried about brain damage, she was brought out of sedation and spent a further 10 days in hospital before eventually going home with a neck brace that she had to wear for 3 months. And all that because her parents, through no fault of their own, had done what 90% of other UK parents do and put her in a forward facing seat at 9 months because they thought that was ‘fine’
Not a bad car seat for the price, got one similar for £40 last year and no problems. Belts seem solid enough but not much padding doesn’t stop my daughter from falling asleep on longer journeys tho. Put her in it at 9 months backwards and switched to forwards around 12
I didn't even know Mothercare operated in Spain, it's a bit of a trek for me shame they're not available in the UK.
By law a baby has to be rear facing until they are 15 month old. I’ve got a rear facing one that allows up to 18kg. I see this as useless to be honest. Most places will start recommending isize car seats, but are expensive at the moment still.
My girl has been forward facing since 7 months. Someone call social services.

That’s height based seats only. Weight based they can forward face from group 1

This is showing a frontal impact and the reactions from that type of hit, but if the vehicle is hit from behind then the physics reverse and so the benefit of rear vs. front impact is cancelled out. I also question the child's strapping into the car seat since with properly tight shoulder straps and chest buckle there is no way for that much movement from the shoulders down if the seat is properly securing the child.

I would spend a bit more on something that will last if you can. The joie stages or everystage will see him through for many years.
Or the radian 5 it's great but needs attention when fitting it first time. If generally they leave the seat in the car then it's a good option

Weight based seats they can forward face in a group 1 car seat from 9kg. This is because of the significant risk of neck injury as in a forward facing seat baby is pushed forward out of the seat on impact and then rebounds back into the seat against the harness. Basically their head is flung forwards and then backwards.

If you are hit from behind the impact / force/ momentum is of two vehicles going the SAME direction.
If you are hit from the front the impact is of two vehicles full force in OPPOSITE directions.

Chest buckles aren't on UK seats.
Awful car seat not safe

Collisions involving impacts from the rear only account for about 5% of accidents. It makes more sense to buy a rear facing seat which is unquestionably many times safer for your child in the other 95% of collisions. And it’s already been pointed out that the forces involved in a rear collision are far less than those involved in a head-on or side impact.

And as for properly securing the child - it’s not movement from the shoulders down that is the problem, it’s the forward movement of a child’s disproportionately large and heavy head and the fact that their neck and spinal cord are put under extreme stress/force that are the problem.

That’s your choice, but don’t imply that it doesn’t matter and that forward facing at 7 months is just as safe as rear facing.

I suggest you make doubly sure that you had all the facts in front of you when you decided to put your daughter in that forward facing seat, if you didn’t then this is a good place to start rearfacingtoddlers.com/why-rear-facing-is-safer.html

Who implied anything? I suggest you re-read what I wrote. I make my decisions in conjunction with my partner, not what I read on HUKD or any other website.

I would agree anyone should make the effort to ensure they are making an informed decision.
Though I am at a loss to understand the only place that hasn't posters with the information on rear facing are the shops selling them
Nor do they explain that these seats are only certified to perform adequately in a 30mph forward collision, 20mph rear collision and no side impact testing at all. Only adequate for city speed limits. Which is Ok for some people's lifestyle but not all.
The brands such as cybex, maxi cosi, Britax, besafe far exceed the minimum safety requirements.
I like this thread as people are using facts in a conversation

Hilarious. I truely hope both of you never get to realise or see the consequences of your complacency/ignorance.

I find it pretty shocking that people are willing to gamble with their childs life and even find it amusing and brag about it.
