The Australian Standard for child restraints or car seats is considered to be one of the strictest in the world, with all child restraints available in Australia meeting the current standard. When choosing a child restraint, it is essential to make sure its suitable and safe for your child’s age and also to ensure it is suitable for your vehicle, particularly if you have a small car or older vehicle or if its isofix compatible. Although all baby car seats must pass the same safety standards, some car seats actually exceed them with additional safety features. Some also may have additional accessories and are more luxurious. There are also Convertible Booster Seats which convert from a car seat to a booster seat for your growing child. Booster seats are also available for your older child. When selecting your car seat or booster seat, please check that your child meets the height and age requirements.
Children up to the age of six months must be secured in an approved rearward facing restraint. However, some rearward facing capsules will accommodate older children up to 12 months old. A capsule also allows you to remove your baby from the car while still in the capsule; this means that you will not have to wake your baby up every time you get in and out of the car. Capsules can also be clicked onto a stroller however most will need adaptors and only specific capsules will attach to specific strollers.
A convertible car seat is suitable for newborn through to approx 4 years old. Your newborn will face backwards until they are at least 6 months old, then they can be turned around to face forward. Before moving your little one to a forward-facing position, check that your child meets the correct height indicators and is of the right age. Convertible car seats are available in both isofix models and standard car seat models depending on your requirements and car suitability.
A forward-facing child restraint or car seat is used for an infant that is at least 6 months old and is suitable up until approximately 4 years old. A forward facing car seat is held in place by the car seat belt and a top tether strap.
