Britax Safe-n-Sound Compaq - Greystone
At only $299 this is easily one of the best value seats on the Australia market.
The Compaq is great for small cars, getting 3 seats across a vehicle, or being able to fit an adult between 2 seats. A big hit with twins.
It has an easy-adjust harness so changing harness height is a one second job, and the high markers make it an extended rear-facing seat - so you can rear face until at least two years old, maybe even 3. The lack of head surround makes this seat good for kids with big noggins!
If you like the Compaq but want extra head support you can always add the Britax Infant Comfort Support Pillow https://babythings.com.au/products/britax-head-and-body-support-pillow?_pos=2&_sid=4b5aa8112&_ss=r
*If you're not sure if your car counts as having a "compact interior" give us a call or email, or contact us on facebook https://www.facebook.com/Babythings/ and our experienced fitters will let you know.
