The world's safest, healthiest, convertible carrycot and car seat
Group 0 & 0+ (Lie flat position = Group 0, Sitting up position = Group 0+)
0 - 13 kg
Birth to 18 months approx
The new Group 0/0+ Matrix Light 2 from Jané Matrix Light 2 by Jané is a revolutionary multi-functional infant car seat that turns into a carrycot, the evolution of the award-winning classic Matrix. It is the only infant car seat on the market (patented) that offers the option of safely travelling with baby in the sitting up or lying flat position in your car, especially recommended by health officials for long journeys.
This means that if baby is sleeping in the Matrix Light 2 in the house he can be safely moved to the car, taken to the shops, and brought back home again without ever having to be moved or disturbed from sleep. It also delivers great value for money as it can be used 24/7 - for overnight sleeping when used with a mattress, just like a conventional carrycot, and for naps during the day, yet converts effortlessly into a car seat when required – giving you the best of both worlds at a fraction of the price of a separate carrycot and car seat.
Health Benefits of the Jané Matrix
Newborn babies should ideally lie completely flat, as recommended by health officials. This position unlike conventional infant car seats doesn’t have any time restrictions a newborn can travel in it. It also facilitates newborn respiration, nurtures the abdomen and aids optimal spinal development. The Jané Matrix Light’s innovative design recognises these important requirements and is also endorsed by midwifes and recent medical reports, giving your baby the best start in life.
Matrix Platform turns Matrix into the world's first carrycot with ISOFIX
Jané understands that you will be taking your baby in and out of the car and pram on a regular basis and that this process needs to be easy, yet reassuringly safe. The Matrix Light 2 version simply clicks on and off the Matrix ISOFIX Platform in the car and will click on to the chassis of a Jané pram in seconds, simply ‘Click & Go’.
The Matrix Platform is the first of its kind in the world. It will allow the Matrix Light 2 car seat to be used in the conventional sitting up rearward facing position and also rotate for its unique lie-flat carrycot position which is recommend by baby health officials, especially for long journeys.

I ordered the Jane Matril Light 2 on Friday evening and received it on Thursday; delivered by UPS to Maryland, USA. Now, that's awesome service and I'll definitely recommend SJ to interested individuals. Still waiting on my son's arrival!
I love this car seat. I have the Jane Twone pushchair and have two of these and they're a godsend! I have two twins who hate sleeping sitting up and can't fall asleep. With these car seats I can transfer my twins into the car laying down and sit them up in a slightly reclined position while asleep without disturbing them. I have the isofix base which rotates and is amazing, putting your baby in the car has never been more easy and stress free. Also with the isofix base I can have both car seats on the same row, and alternate between laying them down during long journeys. I would recommend it to anymore, for the Jane strollers and as a car seat in general. You definitely get your moneys worth.
I love this car seat! We had to do a lot of approx 4hr journeys soon after my daughter was born and she was able to lie flat comfortably for the whole journey, only stopping for feeding. She lay flat only until 3 months and now prefers to sit up, although, with the rotating isofix base, it is very easy to lie her down if she falls asleep without waking her up. It is quite a heavy car seat but is so easy to fix on to my trider base that it isn't a problem and you can transfer from car to wheels without waking - no need to transfer to pram or bed as she is already lying flat. This is so much better for her lung and spine development. We have used it, when away, as a moses basket (with the mattress) and she still fits in at 4 months (just!). I can't recommend this enough! I would strongly advise getting it with the isofix base though as it is a bit fiddly to get in the car without it and the rotating base is one of the best things!! It is an expensive car seat but you don't need to buy a separate pram as this does both.
Used my Matrix for over a year now and I can not rate it highly enough. I know it is bigger and heavier than some car seats but I wanted one that my daughter Laura could lay flat in so to over come the oxygen desaturation issue (see carseatinfo web site). Initially, I used it as a carrycot on the stroller and in the car as a lie flat car seat. It is easy to secure flat in the car (my husband got it down to 20 seconds) but not so quick in the rear facing position. It did not matter though because we had started to use the stroller seat by then so kept the Matrix secured in the car. I see they have a isofix base now, had it been available when we purchased I suspect we would have bought it.
My friends who bought other car seats regret not buying Matrix now, their kids outgrew their seats in under a year. There is still plenty of room for Laura in her Matrix(hope she will be rear facing for another 4/5 months).
I am expecting our third next year so will use the Matrix on the new Jane Twone stroller with Laura in the second seat. Probably go for the Matrix base as well if budget allows!
I have this car seat for my son and can honestly say it's the best thing I've ever bought! Made life so much easier and knowing they can lie down whilst doing the school runs instead of been stuck in the standard car seats is such a relief. Too many people use car seats as a pushchair for their babies and don't know the risks it does to the spine and hips and also the risk of their breathing. I think all babies car seats should be made like this as standard.
This item is truly genius in its ability to sit in four different levels of recline! Being able to travel longer distances with the flat mode is also quite a practical feature! Shipped here to the US so quickly and in perfect condition. Excellent service Downside: it really is not light in weight. I would definitely get the chassis for it so you never have to carry it far! Just in and out of the car.
