    Default New car seat

    So I'm not due with #2 for a while but I was thinking I should get a car seat while there are sales on. For #1 we have a safe and sound meridian.

    I'm thinking a 0-8 years would be good to get? Any suggestions or recommendations?

    I would steer clear of a 0-8, they have low markets for rearfacing and change to booster. You are better off with a 0-4 seat that advertises rf to 2-3 years.

    Would two 0-4 be best? My daughter is 15 months and forward facing.

    If Possum is already ff you could maybe look at a 6m to 8y for her but the recline doesn't seem to be as good. Ideally you want one that harnesses to 8 years rather than switching to booster mode.

    I have a infasecure kompressor it's 0-8. My DS is 19 months and 80cm his shoulders haven't hit the market for FF yet. It's a great seat much better than the safe and sound compaq we originally bought for him.

    Infasecure kompressor is 0-4.

    The infasecure big W version of the evolve is half price in the current catalogue. That would be the last seat you would need to buy

    Both my kids stared in an infasecure neon - cheap as chips from big W and long rear facing. And the big one has moved on to an infasecure evolve - it is harnessed to 8+

    I would look at getting a new seat for possum that harnesses a long time and put #2 in possum's old seat. We'll probably do that. Ds is still rf in his infasecure neon at almost 2!

    I assumed the big one would get a new car seat and the new Bub would take the older one, which is why I recommended the type G seat
