ciara is now in a forward facing seat (shes 11months) and had totally outgrown her 'babyseat'. We have made trips to london, scarborough etc (we live nr halifax) and she has been totally fine. in fact she enjoys it a lot more because the passenger can chat to her and she has space for her legs, plus she is in more of a 'sat up' position which is better for her. As long as you have it fitted properly it shouldnt be a problem.
When i was buying ciaras new carseat the salesman at halfords talked me out of buying the ones that would last until shes about 12....claiming that they provide general safety for all ages, whereas the ones that only last unitl they are 4 are designed specifically to secure and provide safety for younger children.-i mean, maybe he just wanted us to spend more money and end up buying 2 seats eventually..but something to bare in mind if your worried.
