Which car seat group do I need?
At first glance, buying a new car seat for your child mind seem like a bit of a headache, but we hope that if you follow the MumStore advice it may mean that your decision making process is made a bit more comfortable.
Firstly, you need to know what your child weighs - as this is how car seats as a whole are tested and grouped together. Once you know the weight of your child you can then look into the group of the car seat thay they should be in.
