As a new parent who drives, buying a car seat that's suitable and safe for your delicate newborn baby is a priority. Known as infant carriers, Group 0 (babies from birth up to 10kg) and Group 0+ (babies from birth up to 13kg) car seats are rear-facing for maximum safety.
Once your baby reaches 9kg and can sit unsupported, you have the option to switch to a forward-facing car seat. Groups 1, 2 and 3 are great for children up to 36kg as they're adjustable - simply use the internal harness until your child weighs 18kg, then graduate to using the adult belt. NEVER use on a passenger seat fitted with an airbag.
As your child grows between 15kg to 36kg, they'll be big enough use your car's standard adult three-point belt - but it's important to remember they'll still need a booster seat to get sufficient protection.
Whether you want the extra safety of connecting your car seat directly to your inner vehicle, or just want to let your pushchair be a travel system for longer, these handy accessories make transporting your little one that little bit simpler. Just remember to check the fittings match your car or pushchair.
Suitable from birth, a baby carrier is a cosy and comfortable option if your little one's transport is...well, you! With special features to make carrying as easy as possible for mums and dads, carriers are great for times when you want to keep your baby as close to you as possible.
