Car seats and travel accessories are essential to ensuring a child’s safety while travelling by car. Choosing a car seat for your baby or toddler can be difficult, considering how much choice there is. Bundle Baby Online wants to make this process as seamless as possible for families by explaining how to choose the right car seat for their babies and children.

Choosing a Car Seat

It is important to understand that one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to car seats. By UK law, children must travel in a car seat from birth to 12 years old or 135cm tall, whichever comes first.

Car seats need to be chosen based on your little one’s weight or height. Based on the child’s weight, car seats are categories by ‘Groups’ and based on your child’s height, car seats are categorised by i-Size.

Car Seats by Group

There are six car seat groups, and it helps to know which suits your needs.

Group 0+ car seats are rear-facing car seats to be used by babies from birth to 12-15 months that weigh between 0 to 13kg (29lbs).

Group 0+ and 1 car seats come in a combination of rear and forward-facing. They are to be used from birth to 12months - 4 years for babies that weigh from 0 to 18kg (40lbs).

Group 1 car seats come in a combination of rear and forward-facing choices. These car seats are to be used for babies 9 months to 4 years old that weigh between 9 and 18kg (40lbs).

Group 0+ & 1-2-3 car seats come in a combination of rear and forward-facing choices. They are to be used from birth to 12 years old or 135cm tall, whichever comes first. They are suitable for babies and children that weigh between 0 and 26kg (79lbs).

Group 1-2-3 car seats are forward-facing car seats that are to be used from 9 months to 12 years or 135cm tall, whichever comes first. These car seats are suitable for children weighing between 9 and 36kg (20-79lbs).

Group 2-3 car seats are forward-facing, to be used by children from 4 to 12years or 135cm tall, whichever comes first. These car seats are suitable for children that weigh between 15 and. 36kg (33-79lbs). 

i-Size Car Seats

i-Size car seats still use the same group numbers. However, they go by your child’s height. Because of this, i-Size car seats allow babies to be rear-facing for longer, offering more protection.

Another benefit of i-Size car seats is that they work with ISOFIX. In the future, i-Size car seats will become the legal standard for car seats. 

What is ISOFIX?

ISOFIX is an international standard for attachment points for car seats in passenger cars.

ISOFIX uses two sockets built into the bottom of the car seat. An ISOFIX compatible car seat comes with 2 bars that plug into these sockets and can also come with a leg that stands on the car floor.

Nowadays, many car seats are compatible with an ISOFIX base, allowing you to click the car seat on and off the base.
