Don’t forget that it’s compulsory to use a car seat for your baby – even newborns. The safest place to fit the car seat is the centre of the rear seat as this reduces the risk of injury from a side-impact crash.

Small babies can become too hot or too cold very quickly. Make sure your little one is warm and comfortable, but remember that too many layers may cause baby to get too hot.

Travel conveniently Make it easy! By choosing a combined Maxi-Cosi car seat and pushchair you’ve got everything you need to take that first big step into the world – whether on foot or by car.

Top tip Practice installing your car seat before baby is born and then you’ll be confident when the big day finally arrives!

Ever since you’ve heard that you were about to become grandparents, you haven’t stopped asking what you could buy us to help out. While surfing the web we came across a few ideas - the Maxi-Cosi wishlist.

Your story

It felt almost surreal to bring our baby back home. We were so excited after all that time spent doing and undoing the baby car seat, making sure we’d be ready for D-day. This time there was really someone in the seat. Our baby looked so small in it. It was at that moment we fully realised we were parents.

Our pushchairs in the spotlight You trust Maxi-Cosi award-winning car seats, so why not create your own travel system with a Maxi-Cosi pushchair? They are just as stylish, easy to use and reliable as our car seats! There is a Maxi-Cosi pushchair for every parent’s needs, from the complete all-terrain pushchair to the more compact one.

pushchair Which

is right for you?

You can’t wait to proudly show off your baby in their own set of wheels but there are a few things for you to consider before you choose your pushchair. Check out these handy tips from Adeline Smith , Maxi-Cosi UK Marketing Manager and mum of two. Consider your lifestyle

Make it easy for yourself

Did you know that during your baby’s first year, you will walk an average of 600 miles? So it’s really important to choose a good quality pushchair that will not let you down. You

A pushchair is an item you will use probably almost everyday, so it has to be practical for you. A quick and easy folding pushchair will save you loads of stress while shopping. A height-adjustable handle means that the pushchair can suit you and your partner. For your child’s comfort, check that your pushchair has a soft padded seat with a lie-flat position, this is especially important for your newborn baby. Young babies like face to face interaction so go for a pushchair with a parent/forward facing seat.

also need to consider your lifestyle and how you are going to use your pushchair: Do you live in a city flat with lots of stairs? Do you travel by car or public transport?

City compact or all-terrain? Pushchairs with large wheels are great for off-road walks. In town life is best navigated in a more compact pushchair with smaller wheels to manoeuvre around the crowds. If you use public transport frequently, you will need to lift your pushchair quite often, so a compact lightweight pushchair is your best choice. Some pushchairs even stay upright once folded which is ideal to store out of way in the bus/train. Check to make sure that your dream pushchair will fit in your car boot too.

What do you need to know about

child seat safety?

We talk to Neil Oakley, dad to Max and Maxi-Cosi UK Car Seat Training Manager, who answers the most common car seat questions. Do I have to use a car seat in my vehicle and until what age? “Yes, by law children must travel in an appropriate car seat until they reach 1.35m/ 4ft 5in tall (1.5m in the Republic of Ireland) or are aged 12, whichever comes first.”

Does a newborn baby need to travel rearward-facing? “Yes, up to 13kg your newborn is safest travelling in a rearward facing car seat. In an accident, the car seat and belt will take the force of the impact while fully supporting your baby’s head and neck. You can choose to have a baby car seat (also called infant carrier) that is compatible with a pushchair or a combination car seat that will take your child from birth up to 18kg.”

What about longer rearfacing travel and the new i-Size legislation? “Recent research has confirmed that babies are safer in a rearward facing seat up to at least 15 months. Only then is your child’s neck strong enough to withstand the forces of an average head-on collision. That’s why the new i-Size regulation (ECE R129) clearly requires that you use

20

rearward facing seats (new i-Size compliant seats) for all babies up to the age of 15 months. For more info on i-Size and longer rearfacing travel, see page 24. ”

Do all car seats fit all cars? “No, not every seat fits every car so check its compatibility using the car fitting list on the Maxi-Cosi website. Always take your car with you when choosing your new car seat so that you know it fits in the vehicle and can be shown how to install it securely.”

Do I have to use a car seat base with a baby car seat? “No, all Maxi-Cosi car seats can be installed in the car with the car seat belt but I highly recommend the use of a belted or IsoFix base as the click-on/click-off system makes the seat easier to use and you are less likely to install the car seat incorrectly.”

Where is the best place to fit a car seat in the car?

Can I use a second-hand car seat?

“The best place to fit your car seat is in the middle seat in the rear of the vehicle as this reduces the risk of injury from a side-impact crash. The rear passenger is the next best location to fit your car seat as it is away from the most common side of impact. A

“No, it might be financially tempting but you can’t be sure a second-hand car seat hasn’t been in a crash. Any seat involved in a collision MUST be replaced as its structure could be compromised even if there is no visible sign of damage. When it comes to installation, the chances are you won’t have the instruction manual for a second-hand car seat and won’t be sure you are fitting it correctly.“

rearward facing child seat should never be installed on a front passenger seat if a frontal airbag is fitted.”

How do I know if my car has IsoFix?

How do I know that my baby is secured properly in their car seat?

When is the right time to move my baby to the next stage car seat?

“Before each journey, check that the harness is tightened properly. It should be tight enough for your baby to be comfortable but leave a gap of no more than 1cm between your baby’s chest and the harness. “

“Always choose the correct car seat for your child’s current height and weight, age should only be used as an indication. I would highly recommend keeping your baby in the rearward facing position for as long as possible. As long as your baby’s head is positioned within the seat shell and their weight doesn’t exceed 13kg, rearward facing remains the safest way to transport your baby. Check the car seat categories chart page 23 for all details on when to move your child to the next stage car seat.”

It may feel like it’s time consuming to install your car seat and your child correctly in the car but it could save your child’s life in the event of an accident.

“Check your vehicle’s handbook to see if your car has IsoFix connection points. Most relatively new cars will have IsoFix but the location of the IsoFix fitting points vary between cars and they are sometimes concealed. You can also check the Maxi-Cosi car fitting list on the Maxi-Cosi website or scan this QR code with your smartphone. See the section below on IsoFix.”

More questions? ”If you are still unsure about your choice of car seats or have more questions about the different options, seek advice from your retailer.”

For more information on car seat safety visit the travel safe section at

www.maxi-cosi.co.uk What is IsoFix? IsoFix is an internationally standardised system to install child car seats in cars correctly without the need for car seat belts. It is very user-friendly and significantly reduces the risk of incorrect installation. IsoFix connection points are permanently connected to the body of the car and your IsoFix car seat or base attaches securely to these connection points. Most new cars even come fitted with a third fixing point for a top tether strap. For more information on how to install your car seat using IsoFix with a support leg or a top tether, check the “travel safe” section of the Maxi-Cosi website.

Each car seat is tailored to fit your child’s current needs, offering the highest level of comfort, safety and convenience. Your child’s safety is Maxi-Cosi’s top priority, so you can enjoy all those precious moments whilst travelling with your child. What is the best car seat for my child?

For toddlers only

The best car seat is the one that suits your child’s current height and weight, fits your car(s), is easy to install while offering the highest level of safety possible. Here are some useful tips and recommendations to help you decide which car seat is best for your child.

In the car, your baby is safest when travelling in a rearward facing seat until 13kg (approx. 15 months). It is recommended to keep your baby in a rearward facing seat as long as possible but it’s time to move up to a toddler seat when the top of your baby’s ears reach the top of the

back of the baby seat. See page 23 for more details and pages 34-35 for Maxi-Cosi toddler car seat options.

Car seat options for your newborn include baby car seats (also called infant carriers) which are compatible with Maxi-Cosi and Quinny pushchairs and can be installed with the car seat belt or a base. You can also choose a combination car seat suitable from birth to 4 years, making it a long lasting travel solution. Don’t forget to look at bases too. Once they are installed in the car securely, you’re guaranteed peace of mind that your little one is safe, and the seat simply clicks in and out with ease, perfect for busy parents. See page 26-33 for Maxi-Cosi options.

20 22

The zones that are protected in the different categories

As your child grows It may seem a long way off, but time does fly! Between your child’s 3rd and 4th birthday, it’s recommended that you upgrade them to the next stage car seat to ensure your child is well protected on trips to school, playdates and many more! These car seats are built with your child’s comfort in mind and include an adjustable backrest, which allows you to change the height and sometimes width to suit your growing child! Check the signs for when your child is ready to move to the next stage child seat on page 23. Check out Maxi-Cosi new car seat selection tool online and find the right car seat for your child www.maxi-cosi.co.uk/carseat-choice-help

When is it the right time to move your child to the next stage car seat?

When the top of baby’s ears reach the top of the back of the seat (top of baby’s head reaches orange dotted line).

The shoulders of the child should be 2cm above the openings for the shoulder straps in the toddler seat, when headrest is set in highest position.

You no longer legally require a child car seat if your child is 1.35 or 1.50 (in Ireland) metres tall.

What is i-Size? ‘i-Size’ (ECE R129) is the name of a new EU safety legislation that was ratified in July 2013 and increases the safety level of child car seats, most notably by stating that babies must travel rearward facing for at least the first 15 months ( in i-Size car seats). i-Size: safer extended rearfacing travel One of the biggest changes to be brought about by i-Size is the extended length of time required for the initial rearward facing child seats. The current ECE R44/04 regulation requires that children weighing less than 13kg be placed in rearward facing seats. However, it also allows children above 9kg to be placed forward facing (which is about 8-9 months). Many parents move their baby to a forward facing car seat too early as they mistakenly believe that their child has outgrown the seat when their feet stick out of the car seat. The new regulation helps avoid this premature switch by stipulating that rearward facing travel is mandatory for children up to 15 months old in i-Size car seats. This increase in the rearward facing period is necessary because a child’s head is relatively heavy during their first year and their neck is not strong enough to withstand the impact of a head-on collision. In the event of a frontal impact, the impact in a rearfacing seat is spread across the whole body and the child’s head is cushioned - not thrust forward.

The 5 key points of i-Size 1

Improved protection at higher forces for side and front impact and a much better protection of your child’s head and neck

2

Rearward facing travel is mandatory for children up to 15 months old in i-Size car seats

3

i-Size also promotes ISOFIX, which has less chance of being incorrectly fitted than belted car seats

4

i-Size car seats will fit all i-Size cars and almost all cars with IsoFix anchors

5

Length/Height of child classification (instead of weight) makes choosing the right car seat for your child easier

This means you do not need to upgrade your existing child car seat and car seats complying with ECE R44/04 may continue to be sold and used safely. The introduction of i-Size simply means that you now have an extra safer option when buying a car seat for your child.
