What to consider when choosing a car seat

When choosing a car seat for your child, it is not enough to use their age, weight or height in isolation when you decide which car seat will work the best. It is essential that you look at your child’s age, their weight and their height together when making the decision.

If you need proof that you need consider multiple factors  before choosing a car seat.
