Car Seat Age Guide – for Babies, Toddlers & Children

At In Car Safety Centre, we are often asked what seats we would recommend for our customer’s children’s based on their current age. However, car seats are not prescribed based on a child’s age. Children’s car seats are sold based on weight or height categories.

The reasoning for this is fairly straightforward. Two children of the same age can have very different weights and heights.

Below is a rough guide based on upper and lower limits.

We hope this guide offers you some idea of the type of seat that may be suitable for your child based on their age. However, your child’s requirements are bespoke. We always recommend visiting your nearest store so we can find the perfect seat for your child and, importantly, your car.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team if you have any more questions.
