Found 30th Dec 2009
Just bought this car seat for my daughter (link below). It says from 15kg to 36 (4-11). I just went to weigh her and she's 14.2kg. I don't understand those kinda measurements......is 0.8kg quite a lot?? If we talking a few weeks to put that on I'm quite happy but if we talking more like 6 months I'll stick it up in the loft. She'll be 4 in feb but she's not a big 4.

Many thanks in advance for your help xx

Thanks hun....So do you think it would be ok for her to go in as she will be that weight in a few weeks or so or do you think it could be months and months before she is able to use it?

I've not actually tried her in this one as she'd want it and I'm ot sure whether I should wait a bit but she's sat in my son's and it seems fine....looks normal really, which is what gave me the idea of getting this one. She's been in the one she's in since she was 9 months!

It will be weeks.

lol, now there's a good idea:whistling:

The weight recommendations are not related to the safety of the seat, it's a guideline for what size your kid is and if they're average size for the seat.

You'll probably find that the instructions will tell you that your kid's head must be in line with the protruding foam sections at the top of the seat, and if not then you should wait until it is.

I just got it out of the clear bag it came in and it has no instructions:shock: To be fair though, it is just a booster seat type with a back on it but even still. I have sat my daughter in it and it fits her very well, infact I can't imagine it will fit an 11 year old lol

Thanks for all the advice peeps....rep has been left :thumbsup:

Weight is more important than age in a car seat. One youngest was in her baby car seat well after the age recommendation as she just wasnt heavy enough and all the car seat fitting experts said that we had to wait. If in doubt give Halfords or Mothercare a call and ask them whether you should change seats now or wait a bit. You dont need to mention you have already purchased the new seat from elsewhere.
