Car seat demonstration service

From bringing your newborn baby home for the very first time, to exploring the world with your toddler, if you’re getting from A to B in a car then it’s vital you use the correct infant carrier, child car seat or booster seat.

Choosing an infant carrier or car seat can be quite a daunting experience. There are so many models to choose from, but how do you know what’s right for your family? Our trained Partners will be happy to help you and explain all the things you should consider.


How the service works

Our Nursery advisors receive regular training to ensure they have up-to-date product knowledge and understand the strict safety laws that must be followed. They can even provide a hands-on demonstration in your own car to provide complete peace of mind.

The Car seat demonstration service will cover the following areas:

  • Our Nursery advisor will ask you a few questions in order to identify your exact needs. They’ll then advise you on the most suitable infant carrier or car seat.
  • They’ll demonstrate how to use car seats and the difference between them, to help you make a confident and informed decision
  • They will advise on safety
  • They will also explain how car seats are purchased and ordered, so you know exactly what to expect


Our Nursery advisors can demonstrate how to fit a car seat in your own car. This service will give you the knowledge and confidence to fit the seat yourself. Please bring your vehicle handbook along with you when attending your appointment.
