It is essential that you purchase a car seat for your child. It is so essential that you will not even be allowed to your little one home from the hospital without one!
Car seats keep your kids safe, secure and strapped in whilst you concentrate on driving.
Car seats are subject to their own safety laws and guidelines which change as your baby gets older, so you must choose the right one for your child.
Unlike cots, toys and clothes for your newborn, it is vital that you buy a brand new car seat for your newborn as you can never be 100% certain of a second-hand seat's history.
