I agree with what you're saying. If you're aware of the facts and making an informed decision (like OP says they are), then the only reason to not go rearward-facing until at least 4 is because of cost. Forward facing seats do tend to be cheaper. However, that's not relevant for this particular deal because it's £200 - for that cost you can easily get a seat that's rearward facing until 4, including a swivel one too e.g. the Joie Spin 360. Beyond 4-years-old, rearward facing is still safer but the benefits do start to reduce a lot. There's not such a big difference in safety beyond that. And the cost differential actually goes up even further, because forward-facing seats beyond 4 become even cheaper, and rearward facing become even more expensive. Saying it's personal preference is just a cop-out, and comparing it to a 20mph speed limit makes no sense (if we did that, some industry and parts of the economy would grind to a halt).
@ander so more people can put their children at risk with this car seat... :/ If you want it to use it until 2yo great... But as a long term option is not the best choice. I hope noone has to regret buying this car seat and using it forward facing
Great first deal @Chinglish Thanks for sharing and your thread has been selected for our Highlights pages 8)
What am I hoping to achieve by responding to you? I was simply explaining there are multiple ways in which higher risks are incurred. But yeah your judgemental attitude is not worth my time anymore. My responses were purely to remind you that you're not the person who makes the decisions for everyone.
Leaving your child asleep in their car seat outside of a car for a few hours isn't really comparable to increasing their chance of dying or being seriously injured in a crash by 5 times is it? Seriously, what are your hoping to achieve here? The arguments for not rear facing are non-existent. There's zero reason not too. How would you feel if in 6 months times, somebody came back and said I listened to you Chinglish and now my child's dead, or paralysed? That's what we're actually talking about here. It can and does happen. Please think twice before being so reckless with your advice to others, even if you choose to be with your own children.

Been using ours for the past 9 months. Really good car seat when used with isofix, snaps in quickly and tells you if it's secure. Couldnt really ask for more
I got this seat for around £95, and then £30 for adapters to attach to a pushchair... it's really good and felt secure putting my newborn in it! Couldn't say the same about the Nania (?) one we got before that. Only thing I would say is if your baby has a skin condition like eczema.. this isn't cotton, they do a cotton/denim blend one that is better
Thank you...you need to create a baby wishlist and add the item to it first....

I think the Pearl (as a single stage seat) is in a different league to this - I may be wrong as I am not familiar with the Titan model - the Pearl was a primary Maxi-Cosi model that has since had an upgrade to i-Size to support forward and rear facing. Maxi-Cosi have the whole market covered (similar to Cybex) so there will be variation across their models in quality and features. One thing I like about Cybex is they have clear(ish) Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum lines, so you effectively know where you are in the market. We had Joie i-Gemm stage 0 and were very happy with it. We have since gone for Cybex twice just because they presented better value for money (with deals) compared with equivalent Maxi-Cosi models with the quality/features we were looking for.
We had the maxi-cosey Pearls but our car was stolen last week. Car has been recovered and all good, but the seats and everything else inside have gone. It was fine but after just 12 months it had taken a hammering. I can’t see them lasting more than 3-4 years. We bought the Joie elevate ones in a panic and they are terrible. The harness is so short, makes clipping in a wriggling toddler impossible... anyway, for the price we’re going back to what we know.
I doubt you will be using this through all these stages, so bear in mind you may well be looking for a new seat when they reach 5-6 years old. Also, forward-facing from 9 months goes against all current safety recommendations. What price would you put on the safety of your child? My personal opinion (though I have forked out mega £ on car seats) is that keeping the stages shorter offers the most convenience for parent and most comfort and protection for the child. Having 360-degree rotation for the 9-month to 4-year stage was a MASSIVE convenience for us; child can go rearward facing as long as possible and ease of getting a toddler in and out the car with the rotation is worth every extra penny. This is just my opinion from personal experience. We went for a stage 0 seat that could fix to a M&P pram base so there was no need to lift newborn from car seat to pram (only needed one as it could be shared using two bases), then went for a 360 degree stage 0/1 seats (1 per car) to maximise rear facing and convenience of lifting in and out car, and have just replaced with a stage 2/3 seats that will genuinely see us through the remaining stages. This may well be a good price for the product, but please make sure you do your research and understand the compromises you are making before jumping on a deal.
Made me chuckle

I'm in the market for a newborn car seat and isofix base... Any recommendations please?
Recommendation for maxi cosi car seat anyone?
Great price and highly recommended. Although this is an older design, the flexibility of supporting both ISOFIX and belted installation is really useful. Also, it only has visual indicators for correct installation - some of the newer car seat bases have audible beeps that would drive me crazy.
Great price drop. Bought!
Thanks for this!! Saved me some £££!
