    Default Car seat advice for 1 yr old

    Ds has almost outgrown his capsule...he is 13 months now. Feel quite overwhelmed with selecting a car seat for him. Safety is the priority. And a slimmer seat would be preferable as will hopefully have no.3 in the next few years.
    Have looked at infa secure neon and kompressor 2 with isofix and SnS slimm ahr isofix. Price isnt an issue. All 0-4.
    Advice please?

    I have a sns quickfix. It's identical to the slimmline, just sold under a different name at Target, and for about $200 cheaper. The only difference is that there's only one colour choice. My dd is only 5 weeks old but so far it's been a great seat. Isofix is so handy when fitting the seat and I love that it's extended rear facing.

    I'd go with this one because it will give you the longest rear facing.

    Yes, I had called Britax yesterday and they confirmed that the quickfix is the same seat as the slimm line ahr......just a bit of a price difference!! Was leaning towards that seat. Only concern was the compaq ahr rated average on CREP and wasnt sure if they were the same seat also.

    I don't think a CREP rating is available yet as the seats are too new. It's not the same as a compaq though as the compaq is an A2 seat, and the slimmline is A4.

    If price isn't an issue then I have the safe and sound Millenia which is an a4 extended rear facing seat also. It's not as narrow as the slimm or quick fix but not as bulky as some of the other seats available. It has the nice cool wicking fabric too. I tried the slimm in my car but chose the Millenia as the seat was deeper so there was a bit more leg from for extended rear facing.

    I ended up purchasing the safe n sound quickfix from Target. It seems to be quite a popular seat so was hard to track down. Can't wait to get it in the car!
