Hi, I just wondered if anyone can help, my 16month old daughter is going through tests at the moment, pointing in the direction of a movement disorder/brain condition, she has a development delay and is unable to sit unaided, i am trying to get her a new car seat as she has grown out of her rear facing but halfords etc will not sell me one as she doesn't sit up, but where do I get one from?? I have spoke with her OT but still I'm not sure...i've heard that they can cost anything from £800 is that right?

I don't know if it would be suitable but my son's britax seat (next stage up from backward facing) has not only an upright but a reclined position which is similar in support terms to a backward facing seat.

Yes, our Mamas and Papas have a handle to turn the seat into three different recline positions. It was cheep though, about £120.

I think its the Pro Tec one

Would a convertible group 0+/1 seat be suitable - something like the Britax first class which can be used rear facing to 18kg/29lb, or has she grown out of her seat by weight, too?

special needs car seats inc the britax nodic which is rearfacing to age 4 approx.
