Re: Using UK car seat in US
Your UK seat is not legal to use here. I'm looking for the wording for your state, but I don't see it. A seat used here in the US must pass FMVSS213 testing (our version of ECE R44). If the seat hasn't passed FMVSS213 testing it's considered I guess unsafe, at least illegal. Plus, most UK seats only rear face to 9 kg, and in the US, just as in Britain, we're moving toward rear facing until four years old, or about 45-55 pounds. So a 9 kg British group 0 seat just wouldn't cut it in that regard either.
