Things to think about when choosing a car seat
Before choosing your car seat, it’s a good idea to check if your car has Isofix connectors built into it. They help make fitting baby and child car seats easier and most modern family cars today have them. Do have a good check though as they may be hidden in the cracks between the padding of your car seats.
Think about how you will be using your car seat, if you will probably do a lot of short journeys and will be lifting your baby in and out of the car a lot, you may want to think about a lightweight seat with a base that stays in the car.
All UK car seats must be EU approved. Look for the "E" mark label on the seat.
