Best car seat for 7 month old

(7 Posts)

Hi everyone

I'm looking for some advice on the best car seat to get for my almost 7 month old. He is a big baby, 1st 9lb and tall. We are keen on extended rear facing and also want a comfortable car seat for him.

He is going to be looked after by two sets of grandparents as well as me and DH meaning 4 different cars. Would be ideal to have a car seat that easily transfers.

Thanks, feel overwhelmed by all the options!

We have a besafe izi modular. Have a look on the Securatot website, they are very helpful.

We got a joie every stage. Light and very easy to move between cars, which is why we went for it. Does them from birth to 12 so potentially never need to buy another seat. We've only had it a month but I'm very impressed with it.

Thank you both! Does the joie have a isofix base? Is that easy to transfer between cars?

No it fits with a seatbelt, in a very similar way to an infant seat. I thought it would be annoying but you can pull the seatbelt down out of the way to load the child! Isofix bases are a pain to lug between cars and a lot of the seatbelt installed ones require tether straps to the front seat, which the every stage doesn't, so it's very quick to move.

Pics should show what I mean about the seatbelt!

That looks great. Thanks so much for your advice. Think we will go for that now. 😀
