Mothercare Maine car seat

Hi all, can anyone who has one tell me what height/age you should take out then newborn insert on the Mothercare Maine car seat? My daughter is 13 weeks old and looks a bit squished now, but I don't want to take it out too early if important for safety. I can't find any guidance on the seat or in the instructions. 😒
TIA x

I'm wondering the same for my 13week.old boy. He's 63cm 13lb 8oz and has good enough head and neck control that my HV has said he's ok to be in the seated position in his pushchair for short periods of time/whilst awake.

If it's not stated in the instructions, then the rule of thumb is that you take it out when the child seems uncomfortable with it in.

Defo check instructions first though :)

Take this with a pinch of salt because I can't be 100% sure, but I'm about 90% sure it's a rebrand of this seat:

There is info about removing inserts in there, if they are the same inserts, you could follow that.
