When it comes to buying the essentials for your new arrival, choosing your car seat is one of the most important choices, as it is the one piece of equipment that will keep your little one safe in the event of an impact.

There are lots of different options when it comes to infant carriers and today we want to look at one of our favourites, the Joie iLevel, an iSize seat with a handy recline for safe, comfortable and flexible travel.

The Joie i-Level is suitable from birth to around 15 months old and is iSize certified meaning it has been tested to a higher standard. This includes a side impact certification, which will offer more protection to your little one in the event of an impact.

i-Level connects into your car using an Isofix base that comes with the seat and the Isofix just takes a few seconds to connect. The colour indicators on the base will show you when the base is fitted properly and then you’re ready to click your car seat into place.

Once your baby is in the car seat, the harness will keep them secure and as they grow, the i-Levels Grow Together™ system adjusts both the headrest and harness at the same time to avoid rethreading at each stage! The headrest also features Intelli-Fit™ foam to offer great side impact protection and the sun canopy is extendable to keep your little one covered.

Our favourite feature on the i-Level has got to be the full recline which can be used both in the car and on your pushchair to give the most ergonomic position for your baby. By laying your little one flat, this will promote a healthy spine and improved oxygen levels which is definitely a big thumbs up from us!

The i-Level is compatible with over 30 different pushchairs so if your little one is napping In their car seat, it can easily be transported from the car onto your chassis and the recline means they are safe and comfortable so you don’t have to worry about disturbing them!
