Mothercare?

Frankly, I had no idea that many Indian cars had the ISOFIX system. Which ones are these? I have an Aveo but have the standard 'seat belt' type infant and child seats. Honestly, haven't bothered to check though

I contacted mothercare. they sell pretty good brands (britax, maxi cosi, etc.) but don't sell any models with ISOFIX feature.

hmm... My guess is all cars that are in 15 Lac + price segment have ISOFIX. But I have also heard Accent and few other cars have ISOFIX. Maybe other members can post more details.

PS: I wish my thread hadn't been merged. It is more about ISOFIX than childseat.

I bought an infant car seat from Mothercare for my one-month old (well bought it before he was born). Now I intend using it mostly in my Wagon R (wifey's daily drive). I tried to instal it in Wagon R yesterday but couldn't really get the seat belt around it fasten it properly. Here is the one I bought from Shoppers Stop.

ShoppersStop.com - Mothercare Travel Tot car seat- Optic

Now I didn't try it earlier because the seat belt harnesses were all buried under the rear seat (sine they weren't being used earlier). Can anyone help me with this? I am thinking about going to MASS to ask them if they can fit a longer seat belt to accomodate the car seat? Any other suggestions?

This is not what you should get. For infants, rear-facing seats are recommended till they are 12-15 months old or reach a certain weight and height. Check these out at Mothercare outlets in Delhi-NCR. I picked up one of the rear-facing seats for my six-month old and he just loves it.

we have a convertible car seat which works rear facing as well as front facing once they grow up. always follow the instructions in the seat. I think 1 year or 20 pounds whichever occurs later decides when to turn them forward. recline them at les than 45 degrees.

infants necks are too weak for a frontal crash if facing forward.

and Congrats!

I saw one a couple of days back in Khan Market (several car accessories shops are there.). It might be cheaper than buying over the internet.

Check the Mothercare section in Shoppers Stop. They have both baby seats and booster seats starting from around 2K.

I got one from Mothercare at 12th Main, Indira nagar.
