My DS is long. We moved to the axis fix at about 10 months. We really like it. He forward faces now (he's over 2) and the recline isn't all that notable so his head does slump forward a bit. Recline was much better when rear facing, which is the concern when you're moving into a new seat at a relatively early age. I don't remember his head falling forward when sleeping when rear facing. Really recommend the maxi cosi. Didn't like the sirona when we looked at it (can't really remember why - maybe the impact bar)
Just to add we had the old nuna Rebl but returned it for a refund when the crash test results came out. My son is very large (over 99th centile height and weight) so we decided to buy a 25kg rear facing seat without a swivel to keep him rear facing till at least 4. We got the Axkid minikid and it's fab, don't miss the swivel at all. Nuna did us a favour as we would have had to replace when he is just over 2 as he'd have been over the limit for the seat.
Thank you Helenfagain. I think with my boy on 99th centiles...he will outgrow any group1 car seat by about 2.5/3years but as he is only 6months he is too small for a group2 seat so i might just need to buy twice?!!!
Minikid isn't a standard seat, rear faces from 9 to 25kg (should last till around 4). If I'd had any sense I'd have bought one as soon as he's outgrown his infant carrier instead of the nuna, was just lucky to get a refund. Another option is Britax TWE which can rear or forward face to 25kg, Diono radian v which can rear or forward face till 25kg (but takes up lots of room). They recommend a harness till at least age 4 as their bones aren't strong enough for a standard seat belt till then.
