In order not to break my back, bang my head and so on while putting baby in / taking baby out I was hoping there is some miracle baby car seat to buy for my Mini?!

Preferably a 0-1 combi seat (new born rear and flip for 9kg onwards)

I'll thank you twice a day for the next 4 years pls share your thoughts / tips!!!

I guess you need a seat with a swivel function, preferably one you can use to rear face far longer than 9kg.. So a britax dualfix or cybex sirona, something like that?

Do a bit of research about rear facing car seats for babies and older children. The 9kg is very misleading, that is the absolute minimum for forward facing, any infant carrier will allow rear facing to 13kgs - it's better to use a seat right up to it's maximum weight limit rather than start using the next seat up at the minimum weight.


You can get all manner of child seats that are rear facing right up to 18kgs (for an ISOFIX one) or 25kgs (for a seatbelted one).
