    Hello
    I have a Maxi Cosi Axis for my little boy. He is not disabled but I am. I find it really good as it spins round as well as tilts back. Its a group 1 seat that goes up to 18KG approx aged 4.

    Mothercare have been brilliant with me in demos of seats, as I cant afford to buy a seat if I cant physically use it. I would recommend seeing them. They have an actual car seat set up in the shop and then can demo puting the baby seats on and let you try doing them up etc with your child in. really useful for me!

    Have a look in Halfords too, we just picked one up for our 3yr old little girl we have adopted. They even price-matched an online price, I much prefer to but things like car seats in a shop than on the internet.

    We got the Britax Evolva 1-2-3 which has a tilt function - I leave it tilted all the time as it was a better fit in the car.

    Hi Paul thanks for the input
    But can I ask how much tilt is it at full tilt because on some days my sons head control
    can get very poor so the more Tilt the better, do you have a ruff idea how much tilt, but will only use full tilt here and there as I don't want my son To get used to just laying there I want to be able to put him straight most of the time.
    Again thanks
