We explain the main car seat styles you’ll come across for your child, from lie-flat infant carriers, forward and rear facing car seats to child booster car seats.
This type of car seat is really like two car seats in one. First it’s used as a lie-flat carrycot-style car seat, or Group 0. Once your baby is slightly older, it’s then a rear facing car seat where your baby’s in a more seated position, like they would be in a standard Group 0+ car seat. This means you can use a lie-flat option in the early months, but don’t need to purchase a separate rear facing car seat to cover the gap between being too big for a lie-flat option but too small for a forward facing Group 1 car seat.
The carry handle means you can move your baby about in the car seat, from car to home and vice versa, without having to take them out of the seat.
This type of car seat may be compatible with a buggy to create a travel system, and sometimes can be suitable for overnight sleeping.
