We purchased a Mothercare Journey pram system for our 1st child and want to know if the car seat will still be within its lifespan, for us to use for our next baby. The manufacture date on the car seat is 08/2018 and our baby is due 9/11/22. The car seat has been stored safely and shows no signs of any damage.

Hiya, Tim,

If the car seat was stored in a dry place without direct sunlight constantly on it and does not show signs of damage, the car seat can be used 7 years, approximately. So you should definitely be fine.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
