It's one of those things you should never leave the hospital without (in fact, most hospitals won't even let you take bub home without one). The purchase of your baby's first car seat is one of the most important items you'll ever buy. Thankfully, the experts at Maxi Cosi have done all the smart thinking for you, and the brand is one of the world's leading manufacturers of car seats.
The great thing about the Opal is that it has been designed with parents in mind. As all safety experts will tell you, until your bundle of joy reaches a certain weight (13kgs), they must travel in a rearward facing seat. Once they get a bit older they can then be strapped into a front-facing chair. But, generally, this means parents are left to purchase two seats – one for the infant stage and one when they become a toddler.
But the clever Maxi-Cosi Opal does the job of two car seats – suitable for tots of up to 18 kilos, it lasts from newborn until well into the toddler stage. Great value and convenient, it is the only seat necessary for both age groups: rearward facing (baby/0-13kg) and forward facing (toddler/9-18kg).
• With one click you can easily switch from rearward facing to forward facing position
• The same belt routing is used for both rearward and forward facing positions
