    Hi, ladies, i am very new to car seats. infa-luxi-caprice is usable from 0-8 yrs. Is there a reason this one isn't mentioned? It seems financially better off to just buy one seat rather than two.

    Bummer...why everything i looked at were on sale last month and not this month. Talking about infa neon.

    In a nutshell the markers on it mean that you have to move from rear facing to forward facing and forward facing to booster earlier than if you purchased a 0-4 and a 6m-8y seat. Each time you change modes the safety of your child decrease.

    Also for the cost of it you can buy 2 seats and you get the benefit of a new seat with all the up to date features when your child outgrows the 0-4 seat.

    Ah I see. So booster is just another seat with extra height if your child is too tall to fit the car seat?

    Booster mode is the seatbelt use to hold the child instead of a harness. The seat has a tether which attaches to the car but the seatbelt is over the child not through the back of the seat. The pp is right the height markers on the Luxi are really low compared to other seats

    0-4- rear facing till they reach markers (usually 6m-18m they get turned). I recommend infasecure Neon.
    6m-8y convertible car seat. Like the previous one, but doesn't do rear facing. Has a harness that you don't use when they reach the markers, you swap to normal seat belt. I would buy Infasecure evolve. It has harnessed till 8!
    Booster seat- seat belt only. In my opinion there's no need for this one anymore.

    My large 17 month old is still 1-2 cm off the rf height marker in the neon. I would highly recommend it.

    It's a shame more people don't know about the safety of extended rearfacing. On the weekend had to refuse going in a car with a ff seat, our car with a rf seat was handy but they didn't understand why we couldn't carpool. Lol They seemed shocked ds was still rfing.

    Yeah I've had people surprised my DD was RF at 17m. I turned her then though, she had reached the height markers in the neon, but my girls are very large.

    I understand why they don't get it, a few years ago seats weren't made to RF. I used my nephews seat and it was only RF till 8kg! My DD1 hit that within a few months of birth!!

    Ds was 8kg at 4 months!

    I understand why they didn't know (grandparents) but they had the seat in the car for ds's cousin who is just over two. Obviously his parents don't know about extended rearfacing (otherwise the grandparents would have known). Not surprisingly though because no one in my mothers group knew about it either.

    My ds is still rear facing at 19 months and I plan to continue as long as possible (his seat allows it up to 18kg so roughly 4yrs). It might not be strictly legal here in Australia as we bought it in UK but I love it so much as it swivels sideways to get them in and out and I did so much research about the safety so at the moment I'm just risking a fine if I get caught. If you ever watch crash test dummy videos comparing ff and rf you would never want to put them ff!! Scary stuff!

    Sorry to hijack but this is a really helpful thread. DS1 is 3 weeks old and in a hired rear facing capsule so we will need to buy something from six months or maybe earlier as he's pretty tall.

    What would people recommend? An 0-4 or 6mth-8 type seat and would you still recommend the same ones here?

    I've got a VW Golf wagon so it's an average but not huge backseat and planning to try for another Bub in a year or so.

    Thoughts?
