Found 22nd Oct 2007
I know this will probably get lost pretty quickly but if anyone wans a copy of the Which car seat report PM me your email addy and I'll send it. Can send last years too if its any help some of the older car seats still out perform some of the newer ones.

And please please stay away from Mammas and pappas car seats I've just scared myself reading up on them.

Might take me a day or so to send it cos I'm fairly busy over the next few days.

Hope this helps some one

You're meant to put them in car seats :shock:

I chuck my two in the boot. :oops:

Glad to hear AM has got himself sorted. TBH any in-car child safety for our kids was Britax and we never had any doubts about them.

Good idea, and if you place them just right, they stop all your shopping rolling round the boot!!

But not all the Britax ones are good depends on the model. We did have Graco Junior Plus (winner of Mother & Baby award) but this is one of the seats Which warn you about.

If you think the report is scary reading - watch the crash test video.......

Two children from our local primary school were in a side impact - the driver was killed and one of the little girls died. The other girl (who is in my sons class) barely survived. It really shook the whole school.

£120 for a car seat may seem steep but not if you think about the value of what it protects....

That is so sad. It makes me shudder when people are flippant about in car safety for kids, like saying "oh they don't like wearing the belt across them - it's less hassle to just tuck it underneath". Like you said - your childs safety is paramount

Ive just watched that video and be warned its scary even at the 15mph impact stage! Nightmares for me I guess tonight. That has really made me think!

excellent post, made me think too, mind you i have always used britax seats.

and i could quite easily put mine in boot too, as from the time we get in our car, esspecially on school run, they start arguing, and generally on what cd they want on, kids!
but lovem to bits.!

thanks for offering this to us - rep added for being so kind
