Alfa GT and baby seats

The GT must stay, it does have isofix points, but can anyone recommend a tried and tested baby seat. I would like one that would grow with the baby.

Also, what do I need to be looking for. Any seats that will fit into the back seat then onto a pram?

Don't you need to be on Mumsnet for that advice.

Daughter has a Silver cross 3 in 1, car seat, baby carrier and attaches to a pram, loads on eBay.

We had the Britax Evolva 1-2-3 for both ours and it lasted all through the stages of growth, at the time I had a Mk1 Golf and it was fine it fitted older cars without ISOFIX but had the fittings for newer cars too... best bet is go down to Mothercare and try them in your car and see what you think and go from there.

Haha, I did actually have a look on, I think that site, or similar, decided it was full of numptys. Some woman had a blackline the the advice given was from people that didnt really understand how the world works.

Anything smaller than a Prado 'round my way and you'd have government workers doing constant welfare checks - someone would have reported you as not coping with parenthood.

Biggest hassle with a coupé is cleaning the back seat after vomiting episodes. At least with four doors you can reach in more easily.

That^^^^^^ and then go buy the cheap version at ASDA, wife permitting.

I have suffered it as a parent and grandparent.

Oh yeh. I really need to start thinking of a baby in the back of my GT just softly sleeping away on a used seat that been poo'd, peed and vomited on.

It's important to check the fit in the GT. If you want a group 0 that can easily detach and fit in a pram, you need to check that it will actually fit through the gap behind the tipped front seat with the baby in it.

We had the Maxi Cosy Cabriofix on a family fix base. Now my daughter's grown out of it we have a Pearl in the same base. Both work fine.
