I am sure I speak for us all when I say the safety of our children in the car is our top priority. All we can do is trust the car seats we buy and ensure they are fitted properly.
New research and studies spring up often and it can be hard to keep up to date with the latest info. Our Guide on Choosing the Best Car Seat is worth reading as it's kept up to date with the latest advice.
Latest studies show that it's safer for children to stay seated facing backwards up until the age of two. How many car seats have you seen that accommodate this? I have seen a grand total of ONE and that's the Maxi Cosi AxissFix Car Seat. It's exclusive to Mothercare at the moment but I will be truly shocked if it sells out at it's sky high price of £350. It's only available in selected stores and you can't buy it online.
I know you can't put a price on safety but woah that Maxi Cosi AxissFix Car Seat is expensive and out of most peoples price range when buying a car seat. If you have multiples buying these would leave you bankrupt.
So what makes this Car Seat worth it's £350 price tag? It's suitable for children aged four months to four years old, and accommodates children up to the age of two to face backwards. It fits securely into the car using IsoFix. The padded seat angles to it provides extra leg room for those older tots that are facing backwards. The seat swivels so it's easy to get baby/toddler in and out of the car.
My favourite feature of this car seat is that it has colour indicators that tell you when the seat is fitted correctly into your car. I also like the choice of colours it comes in too!
While this is a new and exclusive car seat from Mothercare, we trust our readers will choose the best seat for them when buying. You can see the full range of carseats from Mothercare here*.
