I'm about to buy a 9 month to 4 years car seat. Our 0+ car seat is a Maxi Cosi. This came as part of a travel system so no real decisions were made.

Please can you just tell me the brand name (maybe model too). Thats all. Thank you!

Concorde ultimax - great as it can be used rear-facing till 13kg(?) which is much much safer than forward facing. Very happy with ours.

Britax every time for my DC

Recaro Young Expert Plus with ISOfix base here.
V happy with it.

Maxi Cosi Tobi in my car, Britax IsoFix in DH car and Maxi Cosi Priori in my mums car.

DD has a Maxicosi rodi (for age 3+)

No problems iwth any of them - tobi is really easy to install

i thought all infant car seats were rear facing until 13kg?

btw did you know that ideally you should keep a child rear facing until they are both 12 months and 20lbs.

We have a Britax, think it's an Eclipse

Maxi cosi priori XP

Just got Britax Duoplus Isofix. It is fab and totally ds1 proof (he is a mini Houdini). It replaced a Recaro Young Sport which was very much not ds1 proof.

Maxi Cosi Priori XP

maxi cosi xp - looked like the most comfortable one for dd - have also just got the next size up - think it is the maxi cosi rodi which looks good too.

blithedance Sat 05-Jul-08 22:47:51

Recaro Young Sport - was only one which fitted our car apparently, but the DC's have been really comfortable in it, and the buckle is easy to do up. Very good quality.

Not sure about Muffin's escape artist!

We had britax for that stage after the travel system thingy.

But don't be fooled by the 'age 9m-4y' tag as mine were out of them by 18m and I haven't ever come across a 4 year old still in one.

Flibbertyjibbet Sat 05-Jul-08 22:56:55

Sorry, they were out of them by 2.2yo and 20m. They are big boys but not that big grin

Thankyou all for your replys i'm going to have a look at few websites now. Maxi Cosi and Britax are coming out on top. I'll have a look at both and see wich one works best for our budget! Thanks again!

maxi cosi priorifix was safest according to which? when i checked a few months ago

My dd is 3.9 and still fits very comfortably in her Maxi Cosi Priori XP.
