Group 1 2 3 Car Seats are recognised as being one of the more popular choices these days. The indicators for moving on to this size car seat from Group 0+ include when a child's weight is around 13-14kg and therefore no longer within the weight limit for this group. However, Group 1 2 3 Car Seats start from 9kg, so if you wanted to get one a bit earlier, you could!
Also, if they have reached the maximum height for the seat or the adjustable harness doesn't fit anymore as their torso is too high - remember that the harness should be positioned at 2cm above your nipper's shoulder. As well as this, you should move your baby onto the next car seat group when you notice that when seated, their head comes up higher than the protective headrest of the seat (or their eyes are level with the top of the headrest).
