Hi bobshurunkle, good point! We've put a line in now, saying when this article was last updated.
And, just so you know, we do make a point of continuously reviewing and updating this article, as we know how important it is for all of us that we've up to date on the latest car seat laws and safety advice.
Hiya Vivian5 Hazelann (Reviews Editor) here, thanks very much for your comment. As someone who works in the field, I know how confusing car seat laws can be. We’ve tried to make this article as clear as possible, as there’s so much to think about. The main point in the article in regards to the i-Size (ECER129) laws and infant car seats is that Group 0+ and Group 1 car seats are the only type of seats currently effected by the law. We also mention the time the government has set to phase in newer i-Size car seats, which is around three years. That's to try and make sure there to be enough i-Size compliant seats in circulation in the UK. Until then (around 2018) the older car seat law ECE R44 will run alongside the newer i-Size law, to give manufacturers and more importantly parents enough time to meet the new law.
In regards to best-selling or well known car seat models, companies are making more and more I-Size compatible car seats, we will be publishing a 'best of I-size only car seats' article shortly. But we have a few articles on the best infant and Group 1 car seats, which includes a few i-Size options, please feel free to check them out. On another note, there are going to be quite a few new i-Size car seats released in 2017, we’ll be reporting on that shortly too! 13 of the best baby car seats from birth
6 of the best rotating car seats 10 of the best rear facing group 1 car seats
Hope this helps. If you’ve got any more questions on car seats, car seat laws or anything parenting that we can help with, please let me know.
Hi Maldej, Thanks for your comment.You make a really good point that you need to tighten car seat straps properly to keep your child safe. We source all our pictures from picture libraries and we do our very best to find pictures where the child is correctly strapped in, and the straps look tight enough. We think we've done a pretty good job with the pictures we've chosen for this article.But we do acknowledge that there aren't that many 'correct' car-seat pictures available to us through these libraries and we're currently working on ways to source better ones.
