The Battle between WordPress.com & WordPress.org!

As the picture suggests, I have a dilemma. It’s not a big one, but it’s there.
Now, I have been quiet for quite some time, though on my twitter and Facebook I have not been (so you might want to run and give me a like and a follow! 😉 )

Currently this blog is on wordpress.com, BUT I have recently bought a domain and with that comes the option of switching to WordPress.org!

“ThumbsUP! Thursday” #3

It’s once again Thursday and with it comes this weeks retailer recommendation! 🙂

This retailer is someone I happen to know personally. She’s a hard working woman with a knowledge base like Google. I swear I have yet to see there’s something she doesn’t know about car seats. hehe

Lets hear it for…

Rear Facing Toddlers is a retailer specialised in extended rear facing car seats for children up to up 18 kg (approx. 4  years) or 25kg (approx 6 years).
They are based in South London.

This retailer can offer you car seats from; Joie, BeSafe and Axkid.
Their website is stocked full of all the information you need on facts, FAQs, photos and more!

Expert advice and fitting from their qualified Child Seat Safety Adviser.

Here is a small quote from their website showing expert knowledge:

At Rear Facing Toddlers we specialise in Extended Rear Facing car seats.

It is five times safer for children under five years old to travel rear facing in the car. Children are not little adults and their skeleton is not mature enough to cope with the forces of a crash in a forward facing car seat. Keeping them rear facing until they are at least five years old greatly reduces their chances of being seriously injured in a car accident.

Although we sell rear facing car seats in our online shop, it is always better to try a seat in your car before making your purchase, because not every seat fits in every car. For a car seat to be able toprotect your little one, it needs to be installed and used correctly.

When a new baby is born one of the most important items of baby equipment parents buy for them is a rear facing infant car seat. But sadly most babies in the UK will only use that car seat for a year or even less. All nursery stores sell forward facing car seats that can be used for babies who weigh 9kg or over, and most parents think that this is the only option once their baby no longer fits in the infant carrier. Some even think that moving their baby into a big seat is a milestone to look forward to.
But in the event of a car accident, a child under the age of five in a forward facing car seat is five times more likely to be seriously injured or killed than in a rear facing one.

Congratulations to Rear Facing Toddlers!!

Joie Stages – A Toddler’s Point of View!

So recently I decided to switch the little ones around, putting Henry (9 mo) in the ‘BeSafe’ and Caitlyn Anabelle (29 mo) in the ‘Joie’, and see how that would work out. 🙂

I wanted to see how much room she would have, just to give me a clue really, I’ve seen a lot of questions about having a toddler in the ‘Joie’ so I thought it was about time I could show you how it looks in our Citroen C5.

 As you can see, she fits really well. 😀
Legs all over the place dangling off or on, she couldn’t make up her mind on where to have them. haha
Personally I think she likes the angle of the seat. It seams to be more reclined and far deeper then the ‘BeSafe’.

I previously posted Henry in the ‘Joie’, so you can see a comparison.

All in all I think it works very well!

//Q: Do you have any pictures of your toddler in the ‘Joie’? 🙂

Joie Stages – A closer look

HenryJoie

Henry is very comfy in the Joie Stages. It rear faces to 18KG and can then be used forward facing as a HBB (high back booster) to 25KG. (more info on this car seat can be found –> HERE!)

As you can see he has tons of room. The headrest is adjustable with ease. You just lift a little “handle” in thee back off it to move it up and down. The harness placement is adjusted by the headrest as well, so no need to fumble with it in the back. 😀

The seat also has these little pockets on each side to put stuff in. Like wipes, a nappy, a snack and so forth. 🙂
That can come in great handy.

I will show a picture walk through of the instalment tomorrow! 🙂

Don’t forget to like us on FB for more stuff that might not make it to the blog! ❤
