A Review Of The Cosatto Hug Isofix

A Review Of The Cosatto Hug Isofix

The new car seat laws have completed confused me and I know I’m not the only one, since February 2017, manufacturers aren’t allowed to introduce new models of backless booster seats for children shorter than 125cm or weighing less than 22kg.(existing booster seats and cushions are not affected by new rules.) The states that children must normally use a child car seat until they’re 12 years old or 135 centimetres tall, whichever comes first, so all is worth taking into consideration when buying one so you don’t find your having to keep replacing them, which is my main reason for the Cosatto Hug Isofix  being top of our choice.

Having a car seat which will see my son through to the next 6 years means I can relax and not worry about having to start my research once again in a few years. Next on my must have list were isofix fittings. To me, it’s a much more safer way to travel and so much easier when moving between vehicles as you don’t have to faff around removing seat belts. The Cosatto Hug Isofix also has a top tether for extra stability, and it certainly feels a lot more locked in with that top tether in place.

And then there’s finding something which my son will like. I’m very lucky t have quite an articulate toddler, but I’m also rather unlucky to have such an article toddler sometimes, as he will quite happily tell you if he doesn’t like it. And when you have a child with an opinion, then Cosatto designs are a blessing. I’ve been drawn to their fun and funky patterns for years. You can spot them a mile off! After a process of elimination we settled on the cutely named Cuddle Monster, with extra-cushioned Side Impact Protection and 5 point safety harness it looks the business too.
When being used as a stage 2 and 3 carseat (usually around age 3 or above 15kg) you can use the adult car seat which saves even more time getting in and out the car. Although my son is only just 3 and has a habit of moving his arms out the straps or an adult seat belt so I’ll be sticking with the 5 points harness for as long as is comfortable. Plus the unit wriggle system helps stop that happening even more.

There’s 5 recline positions and an adjustable head rest as well as super squigy, padded seat (our old booster seat was rock hard and the kids hated it so shouldn’t have any problems this time.) And the removable seat liner is a great potty training protector, not that I imagine that’s what it’s for, but pop a plastic bag underneath and hey presto, you’ve don’t have to worry about an accidents.

    I love the look of this seat, however I am a huge advocate of children rearward facing until 4. I would love to see Cosatto make moves into ERF seats as I love their prints!

    That looks like such a comfortable car seat and it’s good that it lasts so long as the costs of these things must ramp up loads x

    That looks like a fab car seat. Brilliant that it will do you for the next 6 years. I was hoping for an ISO FIX car seat, but turns out my current car doesn’t have them ?

    I love the print of this car seat. We have just invested in a new one ( a britax romer) and having a recline was really important for us. It’s really good that the material is washable – we had too many bodily fluids expelled on an old car seat so this is always a priority when choosing a new car seat for us!

    This car seat looks great: safe, comfy and such a cool design. I think my daughter and son would love it too. Thanks for the informative review. Particularly for explaining the new high back booster regulations. I hadn’t been clear on them before reading this. Kate x

    That looks like a fabulously supportive seat. I wish I had had an Isofix one when my sons were smaller.
