About this deal

It's important to bear in mind that moving babies and younger children up to the next seat up before they reach the maximum weight or height for their current seat could lead to more severe injuries in a crash. A multi-group child car seat spans more than one group, so it should last your child longer than a single-group seat. It was great for us; we never had issues with him wiggling out because the seatbelt holds the cushion in place.

If you have any concerns about your own health or the health of your child, you should always consult with a doctor or other healthcare professional.But we believe children change too much from birth to 25kg for one seat shell to adequately provide the protection they need at each stage. Many car seats on sale that are Group 1 are forward facing, although you can find some that let your child travel rearward facing until he or she is up to four years old.

Group 1 car seats are suitable from 9 months and will see your baby through until they’re 4 years old. Plus, they can be tricky as a parent when you’re leaning over your child into the car, especially if you suffer from back pain.This is because keeping them in the younger age seat tends to provide better protection in a crash and in many cases (but particularly if you've moving from an infant carrier to a toddler seat), will mean they're transported rearward facing for longer, which is safer. Ensuring the needs of each parent and child are met, our range of infant seats boasts a whole host of various models and types. But in our own tests, which are conducted at higher speeds and forces than the standard requires, this seat scores poorly for side-impact tests. If it’s your first time investing in a child’s car seat, it’s essential to bear in mind that they are designed for certain sizes, so make sure you choose the right size for your child. We make sure you can travel carefree, from your first ride home from the hospital with a baby car seat up to primary school in a group 2/3 car seat.

I do believe that they meet R44/04 regs, although it obviously isn't as supportive and protective as a standard Group 1 car seat. They are also rearward facing – so your baby will be travelling with his or her back to you when you're driving. As your child reaches toddlerhood and eventually childhood, it's important to stay compliant with regulations. R44 groups 0+ (birth to 13 kg), 1 (9 to 18 kg), or 2/3 (15 to 36 kg) are based on your child’s weight, not height and are suitable for children from birth up to 12 years old.But while our friends’ one might have a bit of wear and tear and the odd stray crumb (which Minnie has quickly added to) it’s otherwise perfect. Some parents worry about moving their child from a Group 1 seat, which uses a harness, to a Group 2/3 child car seat using a seat belt; however there are a few seats available that have extended harness use, or other methods to help a child transition from a harness to a belted seat. Every car seat comes with different features, so it's important to choose one that suits both your child and your vehicle. You can get car seat bags which have rucksack type straps to transport these seats a bit more easily but they are a pain compared with booster seats and infant carriers. It’s legal to not have car seats for taxis/transfers in the EU so you won’t get into trouble for not using one.

We recognize that from day one parents will need a suitable newborn car seat to bring their baby home, before transitioning into an infant car seat to cater for growing children. Group 1/2/3 car seats are designed to take your little one from 9kg to 36kg, which is roughly 9 months to 12 years. Do you have any recommendations for a Group 1 (and above) car seat that could be used for traveling?

To get you started, see our car seat group chart and read more about how to choose the best seat for your little one. Another fab feature of this seat is the green lights that show when it’s fitted correctly, along with the head support, body insert and the wedge, which can all be removed as your newborn grows up.
