we're looking for a long-term car-seat for 4yr old, ideally one to last thro to 11 yrs or so.
Main features - super-safe, easy to put them in/put selves in. I've heard the concord brand (from germany is good), but can't find where to get in UK. any recs?
The Concord one (Lift)is good and stylish but the head rest has a full height back to it so although you move the cushion up as child grows the support is permanently at full height , obscuring view unnecessarily imho. We have a Maxi Cosi Rodi which has been very good and ds has used it since he was almost 4 (now 7)
Know the feeling, fruitful. dd is 3 1/2 and only 12 kgs ! Makes it really hard to accept lifts to and from playgroup when people offer. Actually I do wonder what the structural difference is between the 9kg + ones which use an adult seat belt and 15kg +, or is it just size.
