We are expecting our first child in 6 weeks (all being well).

Having done a search, it seems either a recaro start or a proper tvr seat are the only 2 options avaiable if I want to get our baby into the cerb.

Do I need some sort of cerb specific bar to fit both or just if I am lucky enough to find a tvr car seat?

Does anyone have a tvr or recaro seat and bar they would like to sell?

Any help or advice would be appreciated

Hi, I had a TVR seat and decided to sell it on. I replaced it with a recaro start which works pretty well as I heard it was the only seat that would fit.

However I recently saw a Janes Monte Carlo R1 fitted in a Porsche 997 which I bought for our Volvo V70 which also fits in the Cerbera. This is Isofix but it also fits in the Cerbera. There is another Montecarlo seat without Isofix that would work better.

I still have the Recaro Start but just to let you know there is another option to consider. It has really good head support as well.

Don't forget you won't need a forward facing seat for at least 2 years, plenty of time to find one :-)

I thought it was around 6 months when the baby got to 20 pounds as long as the restraining system fits correctly ( as in baby is big enough). I am obviously new to this and am happy to be corrected.

Yea maybe 2 yrs is a bit of an exaggeration, I think 9 months or so is nearer the mark.

It doesnt mean that the little darling will be all that impressed by you efforts though.



Mind you the cerb seems to have got a better reception (a few years later)

Yup. It's based on a combo of weight, age and development and is ultimately quite subjective and probably better to err on the side of caution.

You can start from 6 months/9kg.

I have a Recaro Start plus the impact cushion so you can use it from 9kg rather than 15kg if your interested

Also check out my thread below to see what the TVR seat looks like fitted

I've got a TVR baby seat in grey/blue you're welcome to borrow until you can find what you're looking for. Drop me an email if you'd like it.

I've got a recaro start and the impact cushion that I don't need any more. No-longer have the Cerb and by the time I get another one (which I WILL) my girls will be too big for it. You're welcome to have them for nothing as they're in the way a bit now anyway.

Let me know,

Olly

If you're going to strap kids to posts you might as well just gaffer tape them to the roof while the weather is good. biggrin

As per my thread above I have a Grey one thats a prefect match for my car along with a Magonlia one that also has the 'impact' cushion attachement. Because currently 'Little Miss Trouble' is is below 15kg (and hence needs the impact cushion) I have I am using the Grey seat with the Magnolia Cushion, however once she reaches the magic 15kg she can go in the Grey seat with just a belt and then the Magnolia Seat and Cushion will be up for sale.

The 'impact cushion' means you can drop the weight they can use the seat from 15kg to 9kg so it will be a while after birth before you can use even the seat with the impact cushion (Little Miss Trouble was about 1 yr old when she hit 9kg)

So bascially about the time you need the seat will be about the time my little one will be growing out of it so might work well
