We've got a group 1 car seat so suitable up to 4 years old approx as they say on the guidelines. Mine has just turned 4.
But what I really want to know is how do you actually when they've grown out of it? I mean I knew how to tell when they grow out of baby seats I found that quite easily but I can't find this info! She's small for her age you see so thinking if we'll only get a the group up when we need to. But don't know how you tell! Does anyone know?
I think it's based on weight limit and also if their temples are in line with the top of the seat. The top of the head being in line with the top of the seat was just for infant carriers. Could you contact the manufacturer?
It's britax first class plus. Thanks realised you're right weight limit is 18kg we're way off that! Not sure about height re seat but seeing as she's short for her age I don't think it sound be a problem
I’ve just had DS checked as he’s 16kg and the limit on his seat is 18kg I asked about height at as long as his eyes are no higher than the top of the seat he’s fine Well just keep an eye on it. Was hoping for another year about of the seat. He’s only just turned 2!
He was weighed at measured by HV a few weeks ago. I went to John Lewis and asked them and she showed me My understanding is it’s where his head sits so if there is something that extends that’s fine as it’s the point of it
