    When your child is bigger move on to the Start, will last untill child is about 12 years old. My two use them and find them nice to use. Dead easy to adjust when they grow and to swop between cars. Even the grandparents can fit them. Have a look at one without the covers on! Its a real seat not a polystyrene cup.

    my little boy who is just 1 use it too and it is very easy to fit and clean

    we used a Maxi Cosi one for 3 years with my little girl which was also good
    but couldn't remove the covers

    they both got the same seat, go from 9 months to 12 years

    Claires got an isofix Maxi-Cosi seat in her car and we bought the same non isofix seat as a spare for the the parents to use when the need it.

    Definately recommended, easy to get the little fella in and out, easy to clean (the cover comes over with very little effort)

    Easy to fit - obviously the isofix one is a doddle but the normal seat is very easy to securely locate.

    They might not be the cheapest but definately recommended. I think the isofix one was about £210 and the non isofix around £90. That was 5 or 6 months ago

    I have the same as marriedblonde - the Maxi Cosi Cabrio I think it's called, with an ISOFIX base. Came top in a group test by a parenting magazine (forget which one), and after a year with it we've had no problems. Really good product. Paid around £200 which included the seat and ISOFIX base.

    We went for the Mamas and Papa's Primo Viaggio. Good Group O seat (rear facing). Its not Isofix, base fits with seatbelts and then chair clips to base Isofix style but fits well with no movement. The little fella is three months now and seems very comfortable. On the down side its a bit bulky but I guess thats the price you pay for wrapping them up in cotton wool.

    What ever you decide fit the seat in yor car (and the missus's) to be sure of fit & get a seat protector if you have leather.

    Good luck with everything...its the best thing that'll ever happen to you (delivery of an R8 may come somewhere close mind).
