The Top 7 Best-Selling Car Seats – Making The Right Choice

So a month or so ago I realized that Knox had outgrown his rear-facing car seat. It was a standard rear-facing seat that came with the pram we bought – and I suppose I was also postponing buying a new seat because, not only are they expensive, but the amount of choices out there is so overwhelming. How do you choose the right car seat for your little one?

The soft padded back support reclines to one relax position. Equipped with side protection system for enhanced safety, Trianos is a value for money car seat.
