CAR SEAT ADVICE UK
Your child's car seat is one of the most important items you will buy for them. It isn't just somewhere for your baby to sit while you're driving. It is a piece of equipment which has been very carefully designed, engineered and tested, not only to keep them comfortable, but more importantly to prevent injuries and save their life in the event of a collision.
Children can spend a lot of time in the car and nationwide checks have shown that around 70% of them are not restrained correctly.* Sadly most parents are not aware that their children's car seats may not be safe. On this website you will find everything you need to know about protecting your children from injury while travelling in the car.
Choosing the right car seat for your child and using it correctly helps to reduce the risk of serious and fatal injuries.
We give advice and information on all types of car seats from birth to about 12 years. This includes infant carriers, rear facing seats, forward facing seats and boosters. We will always give the safest advice possible and therefore we recommend rear facing until at least four years, and not using high back booster seats for children under four,
even if they are over the legal minimum weight.
This website gives general information about the types of car seats that are available, different installation methods and general guidelines on how to to use your seat safely. However all car seats and cars, as well as children and their families are different, and we strongly advise you to buy your car seat from a trained specialist retailer who will help you find the right one for your individual circumstances and will make sure that it is suitable for your car.
