Buying a car seat can be confusing. We take you step-by-step through finding the right car seat for your baby, and decode the lingo you’ll come across, such as ISOFIX, Groups and the latest car seat laws.
A car seat is a detachable seat with a hard shell, used to transport your baby or child in a vehicle. It’s your most important buy and should be top of your pre-baby shopping-list – you won’t be allowed home from hospital without one.
Most car seats use a harness to hold your baby in place and are secured into the car using the car seat belts. However, there are alternative fastening systems such as ISOFIX and in-car base units that fix the seat directly onto the interior of the car.
