car seats??

Hi,
So me and DH have been approved to adopt and currently being considered for a LO. I don't want to say too much at the moment. But really we are just looking around at everything we will need to buy hopefully very soon.
So I was just looking for car seat recommendations.....??? My brain waa fried after searching the Internet.

Firstly congratulations!!

A lot will depend on the age of the child but i will assume you are looking in the 9month-4 year bracket.

I have a cosatto in my car which i got from the argos clearance shop on ebay for a fantastic price. It is bright, colourful and passable. Ds seems to love it. If i had a bigger budget i would have liked a maxi cosi. There is one which swivels round to help putting your lo in and my friends who have them swear by them.

I would suggest you have a trip to a decent store which offers a fitting option and see what you like and what fits in your car best. Then look around to find your favourite for a better price on line!!

Thanks curlytails.
Yes we would be looking at that age bracket. Love some of the maxi cosi ones....but as you say it comes to budget. Especially as we could only have a matter of weeks to buy EVERYTHING.
Thanks Kirstin

I can highly recommend that Mamas and Papas cyber car seat. It has a cushion rather than a harness and just straps into position with the seatbelt. I found it brilliant because when O fell asleep in the car instead of getting a sore neck she could sleep on it. It held her in position brilliantly. It goes from 9 months to 12 years. She now doesn't use the cushion and just a seatbelt but the cushion still fits and I use it for long journeys when I know she's going to fall asleep.

It's one of the best things I bought. It sounds strange not having a harness but it's fabulous and extremely safe.

Thanks everyone.
Funnily enough we were looking at the britax evolva plus 123.
I just wasn't as keen when I actually saw it in the shop. I think part of it is because if we are lucky with this LO they are meeting all milestones but a little lazy so was thinking a more supportive kinda curved seat may be best....does that make sense?
At least we seem to be looking along the right lines. In a way its a bit of a pain but you want a shop assistant to help out they leave you alone yet offer times badger the hell out of you. Im guessing its because im obviously not pregnant and didn't have a child with me either lol x

I would highly recommend to get a rearfacing car seat as they are soo much safer than forward facing car seats!! With Isofix they're also quite easy to install.
If you want a forward facing car seat I can recommend the Cybex Pallas, I think the brand is not really common in the UK but I found it on prams.net it has really good safety reviews and our LO loved it.
