Ok, so I like to think I am organised, and that I do a fair amount of research before I purchase items, usually based on price and features, but this is actually quite hard on car seats for babies.
So I am expecting my first child at the end of may, and the last purchase I need to make is the car seat, we have been given a capsule to use when baby first comes along so we are looking for the one from 6 months on.
I like the look of a couple of the convertible 3in1 seats but aside from meeting the standards to be able to be sold in NZ I am at a loss.
So I would like either
Now price wise, this is one thing I will not compromise on, I will spend what ever is required to make sure I have a safe seat.
Has anyone done the research lately on purchasing a car seat, and what did you look for.
I think the important things are the wings on the sides to stop lateral movement, the anchor and the belt buckle, my partner also wants to make sure that the buckle can be done up one at a time as a struggling baby doesn't make it impossible to do up!
In all honesty I love the phil & teds unit but I am unsure of the practicality of PU leather!
Any advise will be gratefully appreciated.
