INTRODUCTION
To be used only in a rearward-facing position until the infant's shoulders either reach the lower shoulder height
marker (approximately 12 months of age) or reach the middle height marker (approximately 2 to 3 years of
age). Then to be used in a forward-facing position until the child's shoulders reach the upper shoulder height
marker (approximately 4 years of age).
Continue to use this child restraint until the child reaches this limit.
Do not use forward facing until child's shoulders are above the lower shoulder height marker.
Infants are at risk of serious injury if they face forward too early.
Children are at risk of serious injury if they move to booster seats too early.
Children who have outgrown this restraint are safest in a larger child restraint with an in-built harness or a
booster seat until their shoulders reach the upper shoulder height marker of the restraint.

INTRODUCTION
These instructions cover various configurations of this model. To determine if the feature is available on your
child restraint refer to packaging. ISOFIX compatible connection is not available on all models.
No child restraint can guarantee absolute protection from injury in every crash. However, to ensure that your
child gets all the protection designed into the restraint PLEASE READ AND FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS
EXACTLY and use only Babylove recommended parts and accessories.
The child should not sit in this restraint in the forward facing mode until their neck muscles are able to support
their head. However Babylove recommends that you keep your child in a rearward facing restraint for as long
as possible or until the appropriate shoulder height marker is reached.
Carefully read all the instructions for installation in this book. If in doubt about the method of installation, consult
Babylove or agent, or a child restraint fitter or, in New Zealand, to consult the agent for the vehicle.
To be used with a lap-sash or lap only seatbelt or ISOFIX low anchorages (if fitted) in the back of most cars
with forward facing seats.
Regional Road Rules may prohibit the use of this restraint in the front seat of the car until the child is 4 years of
age. Check your Regional Rules for exemptions.
Always store the instruction book in the pocket provided on the side of the cover.
WHAT ARE ISOFIX LOW ANCHORAGES IN A VEHICLE?
If you purchased a model which is ISOFIX Compatible there will be straps fitted to each side of the lower part of
the seat and stored at the upper side of the seat. Refer to page 26.
ISOFIX low anchorages are fixed, standardised anchoring points for securely installing an ISOFIX compatible
child restraint in a vehicle with ISOFIX low anchorages. They are an alternative method of installing the child
restraint without using car's seatbelt.
It has now become an international standard for vehicles. This anchoring technology minimises installation
mistakes by optimising the protective effect of the connection between vehicle and ISOFIX compatible child
restraint.

• Child restraint lower attachment connectors and the ISOFIX low anchorages in your car are designed to
withstand only those loads imposed by a correctly fitted child restraint.
GENERAL
• Regularly check the restraint components, straps and other fitments for correct function and condition. If
faulty, cease using and seek repair by Britax.
• IF AN AIRBAG IS FITTED IN THE SEATING POSITION WHERE THE CHILD RESTRAINT IS TO BE
FITTED, FOLLOW THE VEHICLE MANUFACTURERS WARNINGS AND INSTRUCTIONS.
• Protect all webbing from abrasion and cutting by sharp corners and edges.

recommendations before using a seatbelt extender. If you use a seatbelt extender then ensure that the
seatbelt buckle does not enter the rearward or forward facing belt paths.
• THIS RESTRAINT MUST BE ATTACHED TO A CHILD RESTRAINT UPPER ANCHORAGE POINT IN
THE CAR. REFER TO CAR OWNER'S HANDBOOK FOR LOCATION OF UPPER ANCHORAGE POINTS.

too big for the child restraint. It is
now time to move to the next child
restraint. Approximately 4 years
of age.
Marker B: MIDDLE SHOULDER HEIGHT MARKER
When the child's shoulders reach
this marker, the seat must be
moved into forward facing mode.
Approximately 2 to 3 years of age.

When your child has outgrown this seat, you can use:
• A convertible booster seat with integrated
harness until approximately 4 years old and
then as a booster seat with vehicle lap-sash
seatbelt or seatbelt and compatible child
harness until approx 6 to 8 years of age.
• Or you can use a dedicated booster seat
with vehicle lap-sash seatbelt or seatbelt and
compatible child harness until 6 to 8 years of
age or until 8 to 10 years of age depending on
the type of booster seat.

21
INSTALLATION METHOD
SEATBELT OR ISOFIX COMPATIBLE
If you have purchased a ISOFIX compatible restraint with ISOFLEX straps, it may be connected by either
seatbelt and top tether strap or ISOFLEX Connectors and top tether strap. The ISOFLEX connectors will need
to be deployed from their storage location prior to adjusting the seat recline angle to rearward facing mode.
If not fitted with ISOFIX compatible straps this seat is suitable for fitting with seatbelt and top tether strap.
The restraint top tether must always be connected and adjusted.
Consult the car owner’s handbook for location of top tether anchorage points.
If there is no child restraint anchor fitting or child restraint anchor point refer to pages 83 to 86 for the
installation of the anchor fitting as well as the use of extension straps.
An anchor fitting is required to attach the top tether strap to fully install the restraint to the vehicle.
Select a seating position with a child restraint anchor fitting directly behind if possible.

REARWARD FACING
Continue to use this child restraint in the rear facing mode until the child's shoulders reach the limit of the lower
or middle shoulder height marker before turning the seat to face forward. A younger child's neck muscles may
be unable to support their head thus the child should remain rear facing until the neck muscles can hold the
head steady.
To ensure that the space is sufficient the purchaser should check the
measurement between the seat back of the rear seat and all front seats in 435mm
the car in which the child restraint is intended to be used. The length may
be longer when the headrest is raised in rear facing mode.
Regional Road Rules may prohibit the use of this restraint in the front

seat until the child is 4 years of age. Check your Regional Road Rules for
exemptions.

To use this child restraint, the car will need a child restraint upper anchorage fitting in the seating position that
you intend to use. Refer to the car owner's handbook.
The upper anchorage fitting is required for attaching the top tether in both rear facing mode and forward facing
mode covered later in the these instructions.
If no upper anchorage fitting is provided then you will need to install an upper anchorage fitting. Refer to pages

ANGULAR ADJUSTMENT OF RESTRAINT
Some vehicle seats have more rearward slope than others. If the angle of the seat causes the baby to be too
upright for comfort, the angle may be altered by placing a firm packing between the seat and the underside of
the base. Packing can be a firmly rolled up towel.
If the car's seat is flat then some packing may be required at the front edge of the base to achieve the recline
angle.
Do not remove all of the installation angle by over packing. Always leave an angle of approximately
10°- 15°.
The stabilising bar does
not need to contact the
seatback provided the
seatbelt is tight when
packing is used.

It is normal to have some sideways movement of the restraint if the headrest is pushed sideways. A firmer fit
can be achieved by applying more force to the ISOFLEX adjuster strap. If the tether strap is over tightened,
the installation angle of the restraint may be affected.
IMPORTANT:
The top tether strap must be fitted at all times when the baby is in the car when using either the seatbelt or the
ISOFLEX connectors.
Always secure the loose end of the top tether strap to prevent it hanging out of the car or being accessible by
the child.

HOW TO SET-UP
REARWARD FACING
INSTALLATION AND USE OF RESTRAINT
Correct fitment of the harness is very important as it restrains the baby in the seat. The headrest must be in the
correct position, the harness must fit firmly around the upper torso of the baby and be positioned so as to leave
the baby's arms and legs free.
For babies in rear facing mode the headrest must be in the position where the top of the shoulder strap slots
are nearest to the child’s shoulders, but not lower than the child’s shoulders. Instructions for adjusting the
headrest are on page 42. If your baby has reached the lower shoulder height marker then the restraint may
be converted to forward facing (refer to Forward Facing section from page 51) mode. However it is preferable
to remain rear facing for longer, Forward facing must be used when the child's shoulders reach the middle
shoulder height marker.
HOW TO USE THE HEADREST
First remove both harness straps (refer to page 43), then rotate lever down to release headrest clamp (A). Slide
the headrest up or down to suit the height of your child (from page 65 for toddler use). In rearward facing mode,
move the headrest so that the bottom slots in the headrest line up with the top of the child's shoulders. If the
headrest slots do not align to a shell slot, move the headrest up to the next set of slots. Do not move headrest
downwards. Rotate the lever upward to lock the headrest clamp (B). Refit both harness straps, ensuring that
there are no twists and that each strap is in the correct and matching slots in both the seat shell and headrest
(refer to page 42).

E. Place baby into child restraint lying on its back so that the
buckle is between the baby’s legs. Ensure that baby’s arms and
legs are free. Make sure baby is dressed to allow the Harness
Buckle to be pulled up between baby’s legs e.g. a jump suit.
NOTE: The headrest should be adjusted so that shoulder strap
slots and headrest wings are just above the shoulders, not
below the shoulders.
CAUTION: A LOOSE HARNESS IS
DANGEROUS.
Do not harness an infant wrapped in a blanket or swaddled as this
increases the risk of ejection and injury or death in a crash. The
harness needs to fit firmly to the baby, any blanket or other covering
may only be placed over the harness after the harness is adjusted.
Arms and legs must be free and not bound or wrapped together. The
legs must sit on each side of the crotch strap.
Always adjust the height of the headrest and shoulder straps as the
child grows.
IMPORTANT:
The insert pad is designed to provide extra support and comfort and must be used for smaller children.
Discontinue use when Baby Insert Pad, creates discomfort or the child's shoulders reach the lower shoulder
height marker.

ADJUSTING SHOULDER HARNESS STRAPS HEIGHT
FORWARD FACING
Correct fitment of the harness is very important as it restrains the
child in the restraint. The headrest must be in the correct position
and the harness must fit firmly around upper torso of the child and
be positioned so as to leave the child's arms and legs free.
For forward facing mode the shoulder strap slots need to be
nearest to the child’s shoulders, but not lower than 25mm below
the child's shoulders. Always adjust the harness slot position as the
child grows.
25mm
Adjust the harness to the desired position, see page 66. Remove
the accessories (if fitted) when adjusting the straps. If your child has
reached the upper shoulder height marker then refer to page 21 for
next type of restraint
The shoulder straps must be in the slots
which are nearest to the child’s shoulders,
but not more than 25mm below the child's
shoulders.

TRAVELLING TIPS
SAFETY
Never hold a baby in arms when riding in a motor vehicle. In this position the baby could be thrown against the
dashboard, windscreen or other occupant and suffer serious injury or death.
When riding in a motor vehicle never nurse a baby and use the same seat belt for both of you. In this position
the baby or child could be crushed.
Never breast feed a baby while car is in motion.
Children must be secured in appropriate restraints at all times when the car is in motion. Children travelling
unrestrained or standing up in the car are in danger of serious injury or death. Traffic regulations in all states
require children to be secured in child restraints or adult seat belts where available.
Plan your trip with frequent comfort stops to reduce stress on babies, young children and driver. Keep the car
well ventilated to reduce heat stress. Car windows should be kept open to maintain a good flow of fresh air.
Never leave babies or toddlers in a stationary car because of the risk of heat exhaustion.
Ensure babies and toddlers are adequately shaded from direct sunlight through side or rear windows.
Check the car is ventilated by use opening windows or using the car's ventilation system taking in external air.
Recirculation setting is not suitable for providing ventilation.
Be on guard against carbon monoxide poisoning which can occur through only a slight leak in the exhaust
system while travelling in a closed car.
Securely stow all heavy objects, feeding bottles, etc. that could become missiles during an accident and cause
injury to any occupant.
CLOTHING/BATHING
Since it is often warmer in the car, dress the baby in light clothing.
Do not harness an infant wrapped in a blanket or swaddled. Any blanket or wrap must only be placed over the
harness and infant.
87
IN CASE OF CRASH
If your restraint has been involved in a severe crash, you should destroy the restraint even if no damage is
visible. Some insurance companies offer vehicle insurance which covers or partially covers the replacement of
your child restraint. Contact your insurance company for further details.
Your insurance company may require you to keep the child restraint for assessment, but do not use the child
restraint after a severe crash.
