    Default Car seat for 2yo

    Hi mums

    We've just bought a new car and need to get another car seat for my almost 2 year old.

    I had a look at baby bunting today and they were recommending the 6m-8yo seats, specifically the Britax Safe & Sound Maxi AHR or the Maxi Cosi Aura.

    Any reviews for these or other ones suitable?

    We currently have a Maxi Cosi Hera (0-4yo) which will most likely stay as the main car seat but just need a second one for occasional trips.

    Many thanks

    Do you want to keep baby rear facing for longer? I have the infasecure genesis ( same as the evolve but from big w) its a ff 6m- 8yrs...however I would not be putting a 6 month old in it. My large 3 year old sits in it and we are very happy with it.

    There are new seats out that will rf kids up to 4.

    If you aren't interested in rf then the sns maxi guard, infasecure genesis/evolve, the ezygrow, or safety first sentry are the best options.

    I have had safe and sound AHR (older model) and the Maxi Cosi Complete Air which would have been the model before the Aura. I prefer maxi cosi's, they are narrower plus easy to adjust the height and straps.

    I just bought the maxi Gard scit which seems good for my 18 mth old and is 6mth -8yrs. I needed a second seat I could put his 2yr old cousin in my car and didn't want to buy a 0-4 one as it wouldn't last long but wanted something good incase he kept wanting to sit in her seat....as they do ! Think it might be better than my compact ahr I have for him! The britax ones are great for being able to adjust hiring hrs without taking out of car....
