Car Seat Info

***This is a sponsored post***

There are so many things to consider when you have children and if you drive a car – one of the most important ones is a car seat and there are so many of them to choose from and there is so much advice to follow.

Children up to the age of 12 or 135cm (whichever happens to come first) need so use a car seat from when they are brought home from hospital and the car seat needs to ensure that is meets EU standards in the UK.

A while ago, the UK changed their car sizing system to I-size which now means the system is based on height rather than the traditional weight system and it must be rear facing until the child is 15 months old.

All new cars also come now with Isofix fittings (and if you have an older one – you can get them adapted, we did the first time that we used one) in them now which is an international standard for the car fitting system. I just happen to love this! I worry to much about car seats and I will hold my hands up and say that I couldn’t cope with using the seatbelt system, which I know has been used for so many years – but it’s just not for me. The Isofix system is a simple “plug in” system that clicks and on some Isofix bases lights up green to tell you that the seat is fitted correctly! This is perfect for me, I can happily drive around knowing that my children are as safe as they can be in their car seats.

You can check out the latest information on government websites as they ensure all the up to date information is on there

Here’s Asher in his rear facing I-size Car seat that I reckon he loves as he’s always asleep in it!
