I am currently 13 and a half weeks pregnant with my first. I have zero experience with car seats etc and can't really ask family as most haven't had newborns for 8+ years.
I have a few basic questions and wondered if anyone could help.
- Is it essential to get an infant carrier to begin with? Obviously I want to keep baby as safe as possible, but I know some of the seats that go to an older age also say they can be used from birth.
2. Is a rotating seat deffo worth the money with a squirmy toddler? A long way off but always like to think ahead 😂
3. How often did you keep baby in the car seat for quick supermarket trips etc? I don't know what pram we will get yet, whether it will be second hand or brand new. If it's brand new is it generally safe to stick with the car seat that comes with the travel system? (Won't be getting a cosatto)
Apologies but I just want to get as much knowledge as possible before things get busy.
Also my OH's car doesn't have isofix (is an old car and doesn't need replacing just yet), can most (if not all) isofix car seats be fitted with a belt? We will be mainly using my car but if OH has the baby without me and needs to go out then he can.
Thanks in advance!
