The first thing to get your head around is the law. UK law states that all babies must sit in a rear-facing car seat until they are 9kg (approx 9 months old). From that point on, your little one must sit in a car seat until they are 12 years old or 135cm tall, whichever comes first. There are two ways of choosing a car seat for your child: The first is based on their height. (This is the newer system and the seats are called i-Size.) The second is based on their weight (categorised simply as 0-3). As of February 2017, all new baby car seat models have ISOFIX as standard. This is a locking system, which ensures your baby’s car seat is securely fastened in. All mothercare child seats comply with EU regulation, which is shown by the Ⓔ symbol on the label.
Find out more about this international safety standard in our guide to ISOFIX car seats.
