This blog is brought to you by Chris from Baby on the Move. We asked for his favourite car seats on the market this year.
There are so some great car seats that are on the market and ones that we like and recommend. But remember to make sure that it's the right one for you and your car!
There are 3 types of car seats on the market - Capsules, 3-in-1's or convertibles and the Booster Seats. See below to see Chris's recommendations for each type.
If you are looking for a capsule then this is a great number by Britax. It is easy to use and easy to install with built in lock offs and latch system as well.
