Yes, you can out a newborn in a car seat without a base. The base does not affect the safety of the car seat. It is only a matter of convenience for you in getting the car seat in and out of the car. So it is not a problem.
Hi Vanessa - We cannot recommend you use a 2nd hand carseat for exactly this reason. A carseat fitted with a 3 point seatbelt requires a physical fitting from a trained member of staff prior to purchase to ensure suitability, and to demonstrate to you how to correctly install it in your car to ensure your child is safe. Please attend an authorised retailer and ask for a carseat fitting from a trained member of staff to establish the most suitable carseat for you and your vehicle and to ensure you know how to fit it correctly.
Hi Claire - When we say the 'shell' of a carseat we mean the black plastic carseat itself, without polystyrene or fabrics: This is not available as a spare part item to purchase. The newborn headhugger is not available as a seperate spare part item. It comes as part of a complete replacement fabric set which is RRP 60GBP and can be ordered via your local Maxi Cosi retailer or direct from the customer service department on 01284 413 141 Mon-Fri 8.30-4.30. If purchased direct there is p+p charge of 3.99GBP additional.
it does not go by age, it is based on height and weight. Rock A Tot is not a recognized name on their website of current or retired models. http://www.britaxusa.com/
It is a model from the UK- Weight/Size Suitability -------------------------
The Rock-a-Tot is a group 0 car seat,
suitable from birth up to 13kgs (around 9-12 months). It uses a three
point harness. For a newborn this seat is lovely, the head hugger makes the seat very snug and secure around their head. However I did find that as my baby got older the head hugger seemed too confining and we removed it when he was about 4 months old. The shoulder straps can be adjusted to 3 or 4 height settings allowing a good fitting as you baby grows. Although this seat is designed to go up to 13kgs I think that most people chose to move their baby
out of this seat when he/ she reaches 9kgs and put baby into to a
forward facing seat. Adrian was a large baby to start with (9lb 9oz) and
also long. By the time he had reached 9kg's (around 7-8 months) his
legs had to be bent slightly with his feet touching the back seat which
we didn't think would be very safe in an accident (as surely more
pressure would be placed on his legs if the car seat moved towards the
fixed seat)and he was getting rather squashed in to the seat.
for a rear facing car seat, put a folded towel under the carseat where the back of the envoy seat meets the bottom cushion, this will bring the level indicators closer to level. Also, you might need to use more than one towel once you tighten the seat down.
This sounds like a Maxi Cosi Cabrio Fix in the colourway Indian Spice perhaps???? If you need the head hugger and should pads to match, I would suggest that you contact www.maxi-cosi.com who will be able to sell these parts to you. Do also mention that you also need the Newborn Support (as this is probably missing too) this is a wedge foam that sits under baby's bottom to make the angle of the carseat is a little more gentle.
To remove the rear seat off an au falcon get in the rear of the car facing the opposite way to which you drive facing the rear seat. you need to slide your hands along down where the seat belt conectors are pulling it up abit. than you need to use quite a bit off force pulling it towards your self.
