My DD is very long but although she's not 9months yet, she is unlikely to be 9kg by the time she is unless she starts packing on the pounds!!! We have already bought her next carseat as we got it on sale. It's a maxi cosi tobi. I'm a bit confused about exactly when we can move her on!!
i wouldnt move her for a good while yet,if she is under the weight for it its very unsafe. She should stay in her infant seat until she is the weight limit for it(usually 13kg) ,or when her head is over the top of the seat. the carseat has passed the safety tests with a minimum weight of 9kg in it,so if she is lighter,it may not work properly.
Thanks!! You have all said what I suspected anyway but just the way some websites advertise them they give the age thing too. Would probably be better if they only gave weight limits! She will be staying in her cabriofix for the foreseeable future!!!!
yup,its not easy, i now know i moved my first son (now 7yo) to forward facing too early,his head was over the top of his seat at 7 months and we borrowed my nephews infant carrier as it was longer,until he was 9 months and 20lbs, if i had known i would have bought a birth-4y seat so he could stay rearfacing for longer.
