    We spent a long time thinking about the type of car seat we should get. When we saw this one it seemed perfect. I struggle with my back at times so not having to twist myself to get baby in an out is perfect. The infant insert was brilliant for bringing her home in. It’s a good solid, sturdy car seat and once it’s in your car you’re all set. It also will last her a long time which was another consideration when weighing up cost....”do we spend a little more now on one that will last longer or buy a cheaper one and need to replace it in a few months?”
    The only thing I would say is, for me, I think the head rest could have been a bit more padded but baby has never complained and it’s never been an issue (babies always seem so tiny at first in car seats.
    All in all I love this seat! My daughter is happy and safe in it and my back is exceedingly happy! The rotation and recline are smooth and easy to navigate to make sure baby is in the correct position and the drop down leg is a great idea, really adds that extra firmness and stability you want when diving on the roads. Nice one Britax

    Although more pricey at first brilliant value for money if you think this is the only seat your child will need until they’re in school!

    So easy to use once installed and makes me feel my child is truly safe.

    The covers are easy to clean but the straps not so easy.

    Very heavy so not idea to move from cR to car on a daily basis.

    We have been using the dualfix 360 for a month now and we are really pleased with it. The rotating seat makes getting the baby in and out of the car so much easier, and is really easy to use. The seat is comfortable and should last for quite some time in an extended rear facing position.

    Love our Britax Romer 360 dualfix car seat. Got on offer at mothercare and was something we had considered carefully. We wanted a rotating car seat to save mummy’s back and compared major trusted brands. We have gone on to recommend this car seat to our friends and 2 of them have bought one off our recommendations.
    Easy to get baby toddler in and out as the car seat rotates a full 360 degrees, so can go on either side of the car. Seat can be tilted for 0-13kg and 9-18kg so much less chance of your child falling asleep with their chin on their chest.
    0-13kg setting only rear faces for safety reasons and 9-18kg can be facing the rear or the front on parents choosing. Our major reason for buying this was so our little girl could face backwards for as long as possible before the law made this compulsory.
    Covers are easy to remove, wash and replace.
    Excellent car seat
  • 5.00/5
    • Strengths:

      Sturdy, lasts well, easy to use saves your back strapping in

    • Weaknesses:

      Food gets stuck in the base where the straps come out (can be vacuumed out though)

    This car seat is great, it’s easy to fit to the car (and then remove again when cleaning). The option to turn the seat to put your child in saves you from twisting and hurting your back.
    Can rear face up to 4 years (or 18kg) generally just feels sturdy when placed, very little rocking and feels like it would serve well in an accident (they are tested up to 70mph as well!).
    It’s easy to get the seat covers off and they can be washed in the washing machine in the event of a child explosion. They then go back on easily.
    It’s easy to tighten the straps and not easy for your child to untighten them (which I found out was possible with another car seat recently!!).
    The seat can be tilted back easily for a sleepy ride.
    Be prepared to explain to the hospital that the car seat doesn’t leave the car. It was 3 years ago but the hospital had a rule that babies can only leave in car seats. Ours was super safe on the car but not one you can carry a baby around in.
    Which brings me to because the car seat stays in the car there isn’t the temptation to leave them in the car seat to sleep (which is not safe). If you practice your ninja skills you can get them out of the car seat with out waking them.

    Spacious and comfortable car seat, my daughters been in this for some long journeys and has always seemed happy in it. The swivel feature makes it so easy to get her in and out of the car. It was worth the extra money for that feature. I purchased a summer cover this year which stop the car seat from getting to hot which has also been brilliant with the hot summer we have had.
  • 4.00/5

    We all know the struggle of getting a 'determined' toddler into a car seat, well this car seat is perfect for helping out. The 360° swivel function makes life a lot easier! It's a back saver!
    With the insert, this car seat can be used for years!!!
    It is one of the most expensive car seats however as you can use it through most phases it's actually good value for money.
    Children can be rear facing past the toddler stage which is preferable from a safety perspective.
    It is quite a heavy car seat so not recommending if you need to regularly transfer between cars.
    On the whole we have been very happy with this car seat and can recommend it wholeheartedly.

    I think this car seat was one of the best baby product we brought. It’s very nice and comfortable for the baby. It’s safe than the other seats and I think this is the most important thing when you choose a seat.

    Loved this car seat it’s well worth the money . My daughter went in it at 6 months till she was 3 and the 360 spin makes it so easy to get her in and out especially when she was 3. Would off kept her in it longer but she’s big for her age and out grew the weight limit.

    We moved our baby into this next stage car seat when he was 10 months old and he is so much more comfortable. He’s a lot happier riding in the dualfix.
    The 360 degree turn is a great feature, it makes getting a wriggly baby in and out so much easier. I really wanted an extended rear facing seat and Harry looks like he’ll be so happy and comfortable rear facing for a long time yet.
    My only tiny niggle is that there is no spring release on the straps, but a button to push while pulling on them. Other than that I have no negatives.
    I think this seat will be with us for a long time without any problems!

    I love this seat.
    The best hung is that it rotates 360 degrees meaning no more reaching over to get my son, he can jump in and jump out easily. It comes in different colours as well. It also lasts up until age 4 (or weight dependent) so it's money well spent.

    I had this car seat for my daughter from 10 months due to her size, we used it rear facing and I loved using it because it was so easy to get her in and out of the car with the 360 turn. Reclining her was also super easy with the button and she would sleep in this car seat for hours if I let her, I felt super secure with her in this seat as I knew she was safe and happy! I would 100% repurchase for out next child. It was also super easy to clean.
    I give this car seat a 10/10!

    This is a great car seat we bought this as I have a bad back and wanted a car seat I did not have to take in and out of the car, instead I can swivel the car seat in any direction to get my baby safely in and out of the seat with ease, the only downside I would say is that it does not lie flat enough for a new born so had to use another car seat until he was big enough for the seat

    This car seat is amazing! It saved my daughters life The most horrific car accident.
    It’s isofix is so secure, with a 120mph total impact crash the car seat did not move. Remained in tact with no visable damage.

    We purchased this seat, as we wanted to keep my daughter rear facing for longer, and to ensure her safety was not compromised.

    For anyone considering buying this car seat! Do.. it’s totally worth the money, as I unfortunately had to find out. It really does save lives.

    We have twins and bought these to save my back as the seats swivel, so you don’t have to twist your back when securing the child.
    Our boys are very comfortable and content in these seats.
    They are quite large, we have these 2 seats for our twins and a high back booster, my son has to climb over as he can’t get past the seats in the back.

    We have cleaned the covers on these seats and they were a bit fiddly to put back on.


    These seats will see our boys through to the age of 4, I like that the seats are backward and forward facing, can be adjusted to lay back for an infant and are easy to adjust.

    I fell in love with this car seat front the get go, we only had a 3 door car and needed the swivel to get LG in and out. Although bulky and heavy it was quick and easy to insert into the car - the isofix bar doesn’t stay put you need to pull it all the way out then push one side in first. The seat covers all come off easily to wash (follow guideline instructions on material), and put on again. We chose this seat as LG is very petite and unlikely to be 18kg by the time she is 4. We are still rear facing it at 2.5 years old and have just bought one for LB who is 9 months. Price wise we got it when there was a slight sale on so didn’t pay the full price but I would pay full price without question.

    This is a wonderful car seat! We got it when baby was 2 weeks old and he looked really comfortable and his head well supported.
    At this point he is 9 months and 25 pounds and I can still have him rear facing, which is just Fantastic for peace of mind.
    The swivel function is great and makes putting baby in the car and getting out so much easier.
    It is a heavy seat though so moving it from one car to another is a difficult option.

    I love the britax dualfix. It spins which makes it so much easier to get my little girl in the car. The multi position is fab for use from birth till 4. The seat is black which can get a little hot but you can buy summer seat covers.
    Was a little awkward to work out the change from lying back to upright initially but once I'd worked it out was easy.

    This seat is great. I love the fact it is 360 which means it makes getting my child out of the car so much easier especially since I have a bad back. I also like that it means I can have it either side of the car.
    The straps of the car seat have lovely built-in shoulder pads. They are also easy to adjust for different sizes and the straps themselves are soft.

    My little one loved this seat. It is high so they get a good view out of the window.

    Easy to use. Only drawback is it’s very heavy to get in and out of car.
