what is a car seat base?
Car seat bases stay in your vehicle, even when you take the baby car seat itself out. The seat clicks securely in and out of the base, saving you time when you're on the go. When you buy your car seat, check to see if the base is included or sold separately. Separate bases are most often used with Group 0+ car seats (from birth to 13kg), although some Group 0+/1 (birth to 18kg) and Group 1 seats (9kg–18kg) use them too.
what about ISOFIX bases?
You'll probably have heard a lot about ISOFIX lately. Instead of being fitted by seatbelt, an ISOFIX car seat base will plug directly into your car's chassis. Most cars made after 2004 have an ISOFIX system. Look for the label between the base and back of your rear seat. Find out more about this international safety standard in our guide to ISOFIX car seats.
If in doubt, pop into your local mothercare store. We offer a car seat fitting service to make sure your car seat base is installed properly. We can also help you find your ISOFIX connection points if you're having trouble.
