Car seats and car crashes...........

DS3's car seat has been through both his brothers so it's now been in use almost constantly for 6 yrs.

We had a few little prangs in our car, nothing that has caused injuries to anyone, but I'm wondering if the car seat is still ok.

I know that advice is to change it if it has been in a accident, which it obviously has, just not serious ones.

It's old for a car seat too IMO.

Would you get a new one?

we need one that is a centre/lap belt fastening one and in mothercare ATM they have one in the sale.

I just bought DS1+2 new booster seats ones that are on sale on the kiddeicare site, so am thinking Ds3 should have a new one too, but is it nessesary?

hmm tbh i think i would. simply because car seat safety has come a long way in the last few years.
so a new one will probably be safer than the older one regardless of crashes etc iyswim

yes. and check on the britax site to make sure it'll fit your car as well.
