The cosy toes is great quality, we didn’t use it much with my first as by the time we needed it he didn’t like his legs being contained but my daughter loves it. A popular pram that can have a car seat attached is the Orb from Mothercare, but what car seat fits Mothercare Orb? In this blog we'll help you to find a compatible car seat for the Orb and share some handy buying tips for car seats. What car seat fits Mothercare Orb?
Mothercare tell us because its 9 months old they won't replace and we've got to send it for repair. Apparently, this is what the law says too but you'd have thought they'd be a bit more flexible. Aside from compatibility with your pram if you want it, there are lots of important factors to consider when shopping for a new car seat. First is safety. All car seats used in the UK must conform to the United Nations ECE regulation R44 standard, or the i-size regulation R129 standard. There should be an 'E' label on the car seat which is proof that it meets appropriate regulations.There is no universal sizing systems used to manufacture pushchairs and car seats. Every brand, and even every model from every brand, has unique dimensions. This means that you can't assume any car seat will fit your pram. With safety features considered, you want to think about convenience. Some car seats have removable, washable covers to help you keep them clean which is ideal in the event of spills, spit-ups and nappy leaks. You should also consider whether a car seat is convenient to carry around if you'll regularly be taking it out of the car. Some seats are big and heavy, and best suited to being left in the car most of the time. If you want a seat you'll be able to easily move baby around in then you should look for one that is compact and lightweight. What size car seat do I need?

We are only having to change pushchair as we need something which is more compact for our car. It has been a great pushchair! Read more
The other clever thing is that the Orb also converts easily from lie flat pram to multi position pushchair without the use of a separate carry cot - a plus if storage is tight as it means you won’t have to store an extra piece of kit once you don’t need it anymore.Folds easily and you can do it with one hand - although because the seat unit is separate it takes up quite a lot of boot space.
