Group 1 car seats
Has your child outgrown their infant car seat? These car seats will last until your child is roughly 4 years old. we have a wide range of swivel car seats in this age group which will also make getting them in and out of the car easier.
Car Seats - 9 months to 4 years
Once your baby has outgrown their infant car seat is it time to move onto their next stage seat which is also know as a Group 1 seat. The car seats within this age bracket can go forward facing once the baby is at least 9kg. Although the seats can go forward facing, we would always recommend extended reward facing for as long as possible.
Why is extended rearward facing safer?
Most car seats we stock have the feature of extended reward facing until 4 years. Reward facing for that bit longer is always recommended as the seats counteract this forward movement – the child would be thrown back into their seat. It distributes the force more evenly across their back’s and causes less stress on ‘bendy’ parts of their body. Rearward facing seats provide greater protection for the baby’s head, neck, and spine.
How to know when it is the right time to move to the next stage car seat
All car seats go off a weight and height bases, these are the guidelines to follow to ensure your child is in the correct seat. Even if your little one has not reached the maximum weight in their infant carrier. For optimum safety, you’ll need to move up to the next car seat stage when the top of your baby’s head comes up over the seat back.
*Tip* - To check this, put your hand on the top of the back-seat, does the top of your baby’s head touch your hand? If yes, it is time to move up to a new seat!
