It’s once again Thursday and with it comes this weeks retailer recommendation!
This retailer is someone I happen to know personally. She’s a hard working woman with a knowledge base like Google. I swear I have yet to see there’s something she doesn’t know about car seats. hehe
Lets hear it for…
Rear Facing Toddlers is a retailer specialised in extended rear facing car seats for children up to up 18 kg (approx. 4 years) or 25kg (approx 6 years).
They are based in South London.
This retailer can offer you car seats from; Joie, BeSafe and Axkid.
Their website is stocked full of all the information you need on facts, FAQs, photos and more!
Expert advice and fitting from their qualified Child Seat Safety Adviser.
Here is a small quote from their website showing expert knowledge:
At Rear Facing Toddlers we specialise in Extended Rear Facing car seats.
It is five times safer for children under five years old to travel rear facing in the car. Children are not little adults and their skeleton is not mature enough to cope with the forces of a crash in a forward facing car seat. Keeping them rear facing until they are at least five years old greatly reduces their chances of being seriously injured in a car accident.
Although we sell rear facing car seats in our online shop, it is always better to try a seat in your car before making your purchase, because not every seat fits in every car. For a car seat to be able toprotect your little one, it needs to be installed and used correctly.
When a new baby is born one of the most important items of baby equipment parents buy for them is a rear facing infant car seat. But sadly most babies in the UK will only use that car seat for a year or even less. All nursery stores sell forward facing car seats that can be used for babies who weigh 9kg or over, and most parents think that this is the only option once their baby no longer fits in the infant carrier. Some even think that moving their baby into a big seat is a milestone to look forward to.
But in the event of a car accident, a child under the age of five in a forward facing car seat is five times more likely to be seriously injured or killed than in a rear facing one.
Congratulations to Rear Facing Toddlers!!
