The best compromise between economy and safety I found

Summary: We were going to go with the more economical Britax First Class Plus but seats that span too many categories were too much of a compromise on safety. I found the popular MaxiCosi insubstantial; this feels deeper and safer tho I'm not sure if that then shortens the lifespan of the seat for bigger...
Pros: Which? best buy, one of the best if your car does not have Isofix bars. It is flexible: can be used fairly easily both with and without the base (good if you use 2 cars). Oddly enough, Which? rate it safer without the use of the base but I prefer it for convenience. That said, base is easy enough...
Cons: This fits in my 04 Fiesta but the front passenger seat is all the way forward so if you have a tall passenger, they will be squished. In shops, this is sold as part of the Graco Symbio travel system which is not to everyone's liking but it fits all Graco car-seat-compatible strollers. If you buy ...
Summary: It is quite a long carseat. My friend has twins and two of the carseats. When she came to fit them for real she found it wouldn't fit behide the diver's seat when dad was driving not to much of a proplem one goes in the front (no airbag so it was safe to do so).
Pros: Lots of padding. Some of which removes as your child grows. hood help protect baby from the sun in the car. Child high up and maybe able to see out of the window.
Cons: very long. And the straps can get twisted easily. It can be difficult to fit without the base as you have to get the angle right and you can't see it marker as it on the wrong side of the seat for most people
Summary: Good value and top quality in one package. The infant hugger was great when Annabel was tiny, and it has been easy to use, especially with the level indicator to tell me I've got it positioned at the right angle.
Pros: I love that this is suitable from birth to 13kg (it's a Group 0+) - I went for this instead of just a Group 0 car seat, so I could get more months out of it before having to research the next car seat (Annabel is just about to need a new one!). Annabel seemed comfy in this, it feels secure, is qu...
Cons: There are slightly lighter car seats around (though there are heavier ones too!)
Summary: A good solid car seat for your newborn and ideal if you have a Graco travel system
Pros: Easy to adjust, deep seat makes baby safe and secure. Works well with the base, easy to get in and out of car and onto travel system. The hood acts well as a sun shade and rain shower protector when moving in and out of the house.
Cons: We needed to add a head support (hugger style one) as the one provided didnt seem to hold our little one when newborn. Also the chest pads tend to pop off easily when taking little one in and out.
This review is about the appalling delivery 'service' not the product
29 October 2013
Summary: Just needed to flag up to other customers the terrible experience I had with Yodel, Amazon's courier for this product, i used to tracking via the Amazon email to find out their system claimed they had attempted delivery twice, and that I had apparently contacted them to tell them to hold the parcel...
Summary: Fits my Toyota Auris, despite this car type not being on the side of the box. You do have to push the front seat all the way forward though. Not exactly the best option for seating an adult in the front. If you don't have a major issue with this, what works works.
Summary: Just had a second baby. Had one of these in my car, but we now have two cars. Fitting this makes it so easy and safe to clip the seat into the car. If you have a Logico S car seat and don't have the base.. buy one. Note: There an isofix version as well.
Summary: This was the cheapest price for this item and free delivery fantastic. Haven't used it yet but tried it out in the car and can't wait to use it. I didn't have one for my first baby and this will just make my life so much easier.
Summary: we bought this product as i was told by family members with babies already that its much easier to have a car base than to strap your baby in each time you get in the car. very true. its simple to use as you just click the carseat on top and your done.
