Car Seat 💺…

HELLOOOOO! what car seat does everyone have for their LO? i’m presuming you no longer use the infant carrier or not as much if you do?? what compliance does your car seat follow? is it isofix? is it 360? how much was it? did you do your research before buying or did you get in store advice? where did you purchase it? (i’m asking because of a facebook group, i find it quite toxic & negative & find they recommend the same exact car seat to everyone which is a good £400/500, or for a certain compliance is £200 minimum). just curious😊.

As you haven’t opened the box, if you were looking to return it for a long term option the Maxway is only £20 more expensive https://littlepeas.co.uk/product/britax-max-way-black-series

@kat my girl is quite long but dinky, i haven’t opened it yet, i don’t exactly have the money to be spending £500 on a car seat, being a single mama (although her dads still involved & buys most things) & a student. i’ll look into this a bit more. but thank you for your reply ☺️.

@kat it can be seat belted in as it has the seat belt points, it just stops the seat from spinning and becomes a regular car seat. If you look at the other photos of that model you can see the green seat belt points 🙂 we were also shown how to install it both ways by the staff at smyths x

@Nat just so you know this seat is isofix only, please do not attempt to belt it in. no spin seats are seatbelt install x

we have the besafe stretch, it has the highest rear facing limit possible with car seats so while it was a bit pricey (£500) i know she will be safest for the longest time i can physically allow her. the baby auto one you just bought only rear faces to 18kg which depending on what centiles your baby is following could be as early as 2.5/3 years which isn't a safe forward facing age. forward facing with a harness isn't recommended as it pins their body back and their head and neck jolt forward (increased risk of internal decapitation) yet she wouldn't be old enough or big enough for an adult seatbelt. children's bones aren't ossified enough to safely forward face until at least 4 years of age (but ideally closer to 6) and it's unlikely you'll get to then in an 18kg seat unless child is way under 50th centile for both weight and height xx

@~Sherisse🦋 you're more than welcome! He was like a new baby on car journeys, we got him a back seat mirror so we could keep an eye on him but he uses it to watch things going by 😂 x

@~Sherisse🦋 my son LOVES it! He screamed the entire time in his infant carrier which made journeys really difficult. With this one he can see out the window and loves watching the world go by. We lie him back a bit when we're doing the 200 mile drive to my grandma's or we need him to sleep in the car. So easy to put him in and out as well

@Nat snapppp!! we brought that one today! how is it?? we haven’t used it yet… i dont drive at the moment so i’ll be moving it from car to car (not often) 😩. i know it’s on the heavier side as i lifted it in the shop, but it’s doable ! x

@Madison i’m talking after they grow out of the infant car seat, but that looks good & well protected, mine was quite basic as it came in my travel system & because it was soooo expensive as it was, i didn’t upgrade my infant car seat !

@Nat i wonder if it’s the same as ours, do you have a picture of it? just curious now🤔

@Monet i brought the Babyauto Xperta i-Size x

We got ours from smyths, I can't remember the name but it's a 360, safest model they do, can either be seat belted or isofix with seat belt anchor in the boot. My boy loves it, we recline him for long drives or if he's tired

@~Sherisse🦋 this app can be just as bad sometimes too. Think its worse on Facebook though because they’re selling the seats but speak to people so horribly 🥴 Which seat did you buy recently?

@Grace that’s amazing you found one that goes on to your pram, i haven’t heard of this one either, not that i’m looking as i brought a new car seat today, but i’ll look this one up tomorrow too!

That Facebook group is beyond Toxic! 🥴 The admin are so damn rude too 🤮 We haven’t upgraded from infant carrier yet but will likely get the Maxway plus as it’s the most affordable

I have a maxi cosi coral which goes on a familyfix3 base. They sell for like £300 but I got mine second hand. I researched it and it fits onto my maxi cosi Pram too.
