Babylove EZY Grow EP - SILVER
When your child outgrows their 0-4 seat but you want to keep them harnessed (a very good idea for the under-8s), then a type G seat is the go, and the EZY Grow EP by Babylove is a solid choice.
A cheaper option for second cars or occasional use - just make sure you know if the child has grown between usage as this uses a manual rethread harness and may require the seat to be uninstalled or loosened in order to rethread.
This seat will last a child until they are generally 8 years old by which stage we would recommend moving to a booster seat like the Britax Kid Guard, especially if they are not yet 145cm or meeting the 5-step test for sitting in a car without any restraint.
At Baby Things, we recommend that babies stay in a rearward-facing restraint for as long as they still fit, even though the law allows children over 6 months to use a forward-facing restraint. Rearward facing restraints offer far more protection as long as the child still fits in it. (Neuroscience Research Australia and Kidsafe).
