Extended Rear Facing
Why would you choose Extended Rear-Facing?
Extended rear-facing car seats provide proven, reliable safety and support to your child. Significantly reducing the risk of serious injury in the event of a head on collision. We would recommend rear-facing your child for 4 years.
Here at Baby Birds we offer a large range of Extended Rear-Facing car seats including: BeSafe, Axkid & Cybex. There are two ways to fit an extended rear-facing car seat, with either seat belt or ISOFIX points. Meaning that whether your car is ISOFIX compatible or not, you will still be able to use extended rear-facing car seats.
One of our most favourite brands who use extended rear-facing is Axkid. The Axkid Minikid is suitable from birth – 6 years old or 0 – 25kg. It is designed with the Swedish safety mindset in its DNA. This allows ‘real’ extended rear-facing up to 6 years of age but still a compact design.
The unique self-tightening tether straps featured on the Minikid makes the installation smooth as the seat can be “wiggled” into place. Thanks to the tension straps, a solid and secure fit is easily achieved.
What are the benefits of Extended Rear-Facing?
It has been proven that rear-facing your child is 5 times safer. It has protection from all angles, 25% of all severe accidents are collisions directly from the side or frontal accidents with a side angle. The innovative Side Impact Protection (ASIP) is developed with the most prestigious crash institute in the world – ADAC in Germany.
The reason it’s called Extended Rear-Facing is because the car seats are rear facing for much longer than your child needs to be, as explained earlier it has proven to be 5 times safer to rear-face your child for as long as possible.
