I have thrown up a reblog of the whole post (found here), but I thought since it’s such a long post, I’ll just post the actual email in a separate post.
The email is from Robert Bell who is considered an expert in this field. Robert Bell was CEO at Britax Nordiska throughout the 90s. Today he own Sakta (Sakerhetsbutikken) where he sells car seats and other safety equipment. He trains staff in car seat safety, is a member of the SIS-committee, and is involved in the development of car seats, so works closely together with the manufacturers.
Here is he’s email answering our question to the everlasting debate: IS it safe to use a filler in a bottom floor compartment, or if long enough, extend the foot-prop leg of the car seat all the way down to the bottom?
Bottom Compartments and ERF Car seats (Reblogged)
The short version: This is completely safe!!!

I wanted to talk some more about car seats, following on from my last post. I’d like to think I have done quite a fair bit of car seat research, but mostly I wanted to warn people about being mis-sold incorrectly fitted car seats.
Having done all the research I could take, I made an appointment with a store local to me, who “specialise in car seat fitting, especially extended rear facing, stocking the latest models. Our staff are fully trained by Britax, Be Safe and Maxi Cosi. We offer impartial expert advice and would recommend an appointment for our rear facing seats.’”. Their details are featured on rearfacing.co.uk.
Great, I thought, they would be the perfect people to help me, I was especially after someone who was impartial and who had lots of choice. I had thought (and seen on the websites that the ERF seats I really REALLY wanted, wouldn’t fit (Brittax Dual Fit and Cybex Sirona), so wanted to look at other options.
A couple of days a go I got a wonderful Email from Tots100 regarding a chance to test some products.
The products are through Ruta Ett DVD AB. Ruta Ett DVD AB is a leading edge Swedish children’s media company with an international market. The products in question are from a series called: Heroes of the City
About Heroes of The City:
Heroes of the City is a television cartoon about rescue vehicles in a small town where everyone can be a hero! Follow the fantastically exciting adventures along with friends in town. Meet Paulie Police Car and Fiona Fire Engine as they help the townspeople find thieves, put out fires, and solve one of the many mysteries that happen in the otherwise quiet town. You will also get to know Calamity Crow, the most unlucky bird in town. Emphasizing friendship, Heroes of the City contains a great deal of warmth and what may be accomplished by helping each other. The cartoon is primarily targeted at children age 3 – 7.
I received a Heroes of the City -kit for my children. In it was one of the books, two cars and one of the DVDs. My children are 3 years old and 17 months old. And even though they say they cater for older children around 3 and up, my 17 month old LOVES this!!!

Today we celebrate 3 whole years of rear facing and 2 years of Extended Rear Facing.
Happy Birthday Caitlyn Anabelle! <3
We will continue to rear face for many years more!!
If this is new to you, please have a look at http://rearfacing.co.uk/facts.php and http://www.rearfacingtoddlers.com/why-rear-facing-is-safer.html to understand why rear facing is so important!
It’s never too late to educate! When we know better we do better!
Happy Holidays! :D Our holiday started off with a bang, and we are currently cruising around in a 5-door hatchback Fiat Punto 2003 model! Not to worry, hubby is OK, but our car is not, so my wonderful father in law has lent us he’s stepson’s car for a while. So with no further ado, here is the Britax Two Way Elite in a Fiat Punto 2003, and it’s in the front seat! <3 It’s is a convertible car seat that rear faces to 25KG, and is also now the only manufactured seat that harnesses to 25KG forward facing, as the Britax Xtensafix is no longer in production. I do however strongly advocate for using it rear facing as it’s outgrown at the same time both ways!
