Rest assured you don't need to rush to upgrade to a i-size. I-size car seats don't replace the current legislation (ECE R129)- it simply runs alongside it. I-size seats were introduced for two main reasons. Lots of parents move there babies into forward-facing car seats too soon. If in the even of a collision, the babies neck isn't sufficiently developed to support a relatively heavy head. Keeping your baby in a rear facing seat for longer is the safer bet.
Rear facing in i-size is compatible up to 15 months as this is safer, offering better protection to the head.
I-size car seats have to pass far more vigorous safety standards and tests than ever before with more sensitive test dummies.
When your choosing a car seat, the weight brackets can become confusing for some parents. With i size car seats they use height - Just like buying clothes. Only when your baby is 75-80cm and 15 months they can switch to forward facing and thus early upsizing is prevented.
Isofix car seats simply click in place with no need to use the car's seat belt. This stops the chance of incorrect fitting and is reassuringly easy to install.
I-size means piece of mind. Currently, not all car seats are able to fit all cars, but all i-size car seats fit most cars equipped with isofix.
R129 tests are carried out using q-dummies which have 32 sensors. These are more advanced and gives the tester a better idea of what is happening inside the crash tests.
Facing your baby rearward helps protect your baby in the event of a crash, protecting little necks and spines up to 5 times more than forward facing.
