Default Car seat question

..for all those who've made the return journey

Does anyone know if I can use an Australian car seat in the UK??? It's a safe'n'sound one - also...can this be used on a flight (attached to the plane seat).

I don't know the definite answer to this but my sister in law who had 2 kids in the Uk and 1 here in Oz told me not to buy a car seat here for our new bub as we won't be able to use it when we move back to the UK. Not sure exactly why but something to do with fittings and safety standards.

I have a feeling you're right
Does anyone have a UK car seat going (we're in Perth) to avoid the cost of buying another one...our old ones are in storage back home

Hi Mighty

I came back years ago with Oz car seat but have had to buy UK one. Can get safe and sound here but best get a new one as I am sure you would want to know it is safe and has not been in a car accident. My mum got me mine from mothercare and it was put in the car that met me at Heathrow.

Derrrrrrrrrr just read that you have one in storage...ignore me it is still early hours in my head !!!

Wow, that old already?! Tell him to stop growing up - he should only be about 4 months by my reckoning.

I'm good thanks. Finally set a moving back date, so I've spent the day researching flights to Blighty. Feels good to be making plans again.

Not heard from Bev in a few months - but drop her an email every so often. Probably about time I did again, actually.

Default Re: Car seat question

Can anyone else help with the car seat issue? Even a swap or something? Your UK car seat for my Oz one?

Failing that I guess I can try to sell it in the UK to a family who are emigrating and need one - might take a while to do that...something else to add to my list

Might get more of a response in the Oz forum than the moving back forum

How did it fit into the car? I understand how the belt will slot in at the back like normal car seats...but how do you secure it so it doesn't move?
My sons Brittax car seat has a clip at the side which holds the belt once you tighten it. I know the centre anchor point here does that - how do you do that with the safe'n'sound - is there a clip on that that I'm missing?

We have an anchor point in the boot of the car, it clips onto that just as it does to the anchor point on the parcel shelf in Oz cars - or so my hubby says!

Mighty Mouse, how old is your baby? Is it a forward facing or rear facing carseat you are asking about?
