Question about Baby Gear

1 Answer

Infant car seat

I have a 2006 infant car seat designed by Phil and Teds. I purchased it in England. I need to use it again, but can't find the instructions. The car seat straps in using the car seat belt, not the clips not in US cars. I believe this type of car seat is still typical in Europe. My recollection is that the lap belt goes over the base of the seat where the baby feet are, and then the shoulder straps go behind the seat (head). I've done this and the seat does not seem secure. Any thoughts? Many thanks. Emily.

Although I do not know this seat, if it is a UK model you should have blue stickers located where the belt will go. Typically the European seats do fit as you suggest, lap belt over the childs legs (pull firm at that point) then the should belt over and behind babys head (pull firm again at that point). Bear in mind that the seat does not have to be rock solid, but the weight of baby will make this feel more secure and remember that if there should be any kind of impact, the seat belt is designed to lock off, hence how this works.

I hope this helps.

    Althought I don't have specific experience of this particular carseat, yes, this is exactly how carseats are fitting with a three-point seatbelt here in the UK.

    I hope this helps.

How do you change the seat position in the twin phil and ted stroller from infant to the first step up?


At the back of the main seat unit (which will be totally flat at this point) there is a clip at the top and at the bottom, clip these together and the seat will be upright.

I hope this helps.

Phill and Ted pram hood hard to put back in place

I have the same problem with a Phil and Ted's Sport - but I believe I have the solution as below. This is taken straight from the Instruction Manual which you can view at: - towards bottom of page is a link to the instruction manual - which I was unable to get on the Phil and Teds website. Got this today but haven't tried it yet. Hope this helps.
Really becomes clear when you see the pictures in the instruction manual.
Regards, John
The sport hood is packed disconnected.
To reconnect:
1. Locate sun hood and hold it facing down, as shown ‘a’.
2. Insert crimped wire ends into frame, through eyelets, ‘b’.
3. Lay hood back (to top of buggy).
4. Locate red coloured pocket at top of fabric seat and insert rear hood wires into each side, ‘c’ and ‘d’.
5.Open hood and attach domes, at bottom of hood, to main seat, ‘e’.
6. Pull eyelet at top of hood over pegs on each side of frame, ‘f’
Note that the windows in the hood are lined with a sun mesh of
a lower shade factor than buggy fabric. Always use sun cream
and clothing for protection of children in direct sunlight.
