Affordable ERF car seat

Hi, I'm looking to buy two ERF car seats for DD (13.5 months, 22lb) for DH and Granny's car.

We've already got the Britax dual fix for my car which is the one DD is in most of the time, but she's outgrown her 0 stage car seat in both other cars and don't want to spend a fortune on new ones.

Fitted with seat belts preferable.

We are looking at this one it is isofix or seatbelt and seems quite reasonable.

I'd read this before you buy that.

That's a bit too pricey for a seat that may just get used once a week. I was hoping something around £70.

Elllicam if you buy a new I-Anchor car seat the likelihood is it will be ISOFIX only - Joie have changed the seat. This is copied from their Facebook page

"The original version had the capability to use belts alone under R44 criteria, we have updated the seat and changed the marketing to help promote a clear I-Size (ISOFIX) message, so removed this capability from the later shells but for those with the earlier version this is not a problem to continue with this fitment method. Please DM us with an image of the sticker at the top, rear of the seat shell and we will be able to identify which model variation you have. kind regards Joie"

You could get the Joie Steadi for £100 or the Joie Stages for £150.

I have joie stages and am happy with it but it's over your budget, it's £150.

However, I think you'll be hard pushed to find an erf under £100.

The Joie Tilt is about £70 I think, but probably won't last rear facing until 18kgs as it's not the tallest seat. But and period of extended rear facing is better than nothing.

To be honest for £70 you'll struggle to get anything other than a high back booster.

Joie Tilt £69.99
