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.
A rear facing car seat with carry handle is usually a Group 0+ car seat. That means you can use it from birth (you don’t have to have a lie-flat option), right up until your baby is big enough for a forward facing car seat.
The carry handle lets you move your baby about, so if they fall asleep in the car seat you don’t have to disturb them.
Many rear facing car seats with carry handle are compatible with a buggy to create travel system.
