What is the best way to transport my children in the back seat?

It can sometimes be quite tricky for parents to work out how to transport several children in a car. But with the BeSafe range you can find all the i-Size car seats you need to safely transport your children from the moment they are born to the age of around 12 years!

Type of car seat

The type of car seat you need will depend on the age, weight and height of your child. You should also choose a safe car seat that fits in with your lifestyle. So do you mainly use the car for travelling short distances each day or do you frequently take long car trips?

For short distances, it can be a good idea to choose a car seat that allows you to get your child in and out of the car easily. That’s where a rotating (or swivel) car seat can be a great idea. If you’re going to travel long distances, that’s when you need some extra comfort, enough legroom and the option for your child to be in different sitting and horizontal positions. In that case, look no further than the car seats in the iZi Modular range.

We’re pleased to be able to introduce BeSafe's i-Size car seats. At the bottom of the blog, you can find all the dimensions for these car seats.
