I think we ended up with an extended rear facing seat by sheer luck- its a maxi cos nxt or something- rear facing to 36 months dependant on bubs height.
We ended up with this one as we didnt want to get a capsule system so needed something from birth.
Couldn't be bothered doing the research on a capsule only to have to buy a car seat in about 6 months! There are so many things to buy, I was over it. Likewise for monitors, I can't be bothered deciding which to get so having none. Simpler the better!
