Baby is eleven months now and I really need to start thinking about his next size car seat. In normal circumstances I’d go look in person but clearly that’s not happening any time soon.
Requirements (recognising we may need to compromise) ideally extended rear facing, interestedly in a swivel option, must fit in an X3 and ideally will leave the front passenger with a decent amount of leg room. (DH is tall).
What percentage height and weight is your DC following? Track what their weight is predicted to be by the time they are 4. If it is more than 18kg, then it would be better to go for a 25kg rear facing seat like the Axkid Minikid. If they are not predicted to be 18kg by the time they are 4, you could go for an 18kg seat like the Joie spin seat.
Car Seat Advice UK on Facebook is a great source of information. If you search for your car type you can see what other people have fitted in your car.
