It's important to note that when it comes to child seat law, you have the responsibility to make sure you're in line with it. The child seat law was introduced to the UK in 2006. It ensures youngsters are protected if you are unlucky enough to have an accident whilst on the road.
The law says that all children under 135cm tall need a car seat on all journeys, so it's best to start thinking about the right car seat before your little bundle of joy arrives.
Keeping your child safe whilst in the car is your number one priority. It's also a legal requirement for a child to be in an appropriate car seat until they're 12 years old or 135cm in height (whichever comes first).
With so many car seats to choose from, it can be tricky to know what you need to look out for. It's important to keep in mind the age and weight of your child, as well as the vehicle the seat is being fitted into.
