Car seat recommendations?

My husband has just amazingly managed to crack the side of our sons car seat by launching the Hoover in the cupboard where he claims he didn't realise the car seat was in! Grrrr men!

I now no longer click the car seat on to the buggy base as our son prefers his big boy push chair! So he goes in that from the car seat when we go out. But of course I still need a rear facing car seat for him so need to get one asap. Walking with the pushchair until then-extra exercise I guess!

Our son is 8 months old and weighs 20 lbs.

Any recommendations/ones to avoid?

Thank you in advance!

We bought the britax 123 or something. It works as a rear facing new born seat and then turns round and still fits my son at 3.5. He'll be moving out of it soon because I'm expecting, but he still fits it.

The Axis one that swivels is great -goes rear facing then front

Not helpful now but when you get a new one could you just keep it in the car?

It needs to be rear facing until ds is 12 months, We have a maxi cosy wit an easybase. If I were buying again I would get the Base that rotates and is compatible with the sequence of car seats.
