Hi all,

my ds is almost 8 months and nearly the right weight for the next car seat. However, I am bewildered by the choice and do not know what to go with. I would appreciate any advice on which is safest/best.
We have a toyota corolla (06) and a ford fiesta (56) and the seat must fit in both cars.
Thanks (grin)

This one because it's brilliant. grin

Cheers WTWTW - it certainly looks good and the recommendations are positive. Will see what else is recommended and do a bit more research, but it's great coming on here and getting advice from people who use them (rather than the sales people in the shop!).

We have this one and it's good for us.The Britax website will tell you if it will fit in your cars.

i've been very happy with my Maxi Cosi Priori XP.
great multi position recline function means they sleep well if you want them to.


Remembered this earlier.

It's basically the same as the other one, (which is what I have) but it is newer, and swivels on its base for you to put your child in, very clever.

May be hard to appreciate at the mo. but when they get big and heavy and esp. when they are asleep, this would be a real back saver.

Just a thought.

The seat with the swivel is genius! grin what a brilliant idea! - it's now top of my list...

Not sure if you've heard that rearfacing seats for this age range are 5 times safer than forward facing ones. Find out all the info at , there is an alternative out there. Cheers.

Hi D1974 - thanks for the link - I'll have a look - I had seen a discussion saying something about that the other month, but then forgot about it until you mentioned it <off to look at car seats...>

Have just looked at the website and are off to Halfords to look at Britax 0+1s which can be used rear facing up to 13kg as the other ones on the website were difficult to obtain... but on the balance of evidence it does look much safer!
