All you need to know about moving up from your baby car seat!
How do you know when it’s time to switch?
You may need to switch even if your child has not reached the maximum weight. For optimum safety, you’ll need to move up to the next car seat stage when the top of your baby’s head comes up over the seat back. Tip: put your hand on the top of the back-seat, does the top of your baby’s head touch your hand? Time to move up to a new car seat!
Don’t be tempted to switch to a forward-facing car seat too soon. At Maxi-Cosi, we recommend that your child continues to travel in a safe rearward-facing position for as long as possible or at least up to 15 months.
