    Default Childrens car seats

    Hi just wondered if anybody has any recommendations on a childs car seat?

    Ideally want one that converts to a booster seat when she's old enough, she's two now so has to be 11kg+

    Britax looks quite good, anybody have one of these?

    We have the maxi cosi priorifix and the priori xp, both are great seats. The bonus is that the priorifix is an Isofix setup as well whereas the other isn't. One tip if you do happen to go for either; don't bother buying the add on cup holder, I hankered after one for ages and they are rubbish, a waste of £15. They keep falling off and will not fix properly to the seat.

    Which? are good for some comparisons.
