Car Seat Safety
 
New Car Restraint Laws came into effect in Australia on 1st March 2010.

These laws require the following:
- Children need to be in an approved and properly fastened rear-facing restraint until at least 6 months of age
- Children between the ages of 6 months and 4 years need to be properly fastened in an approved rear-facing or forward-facing restraint with an in-built harness
- Children aged 4 and up to 7 years of age need to be properly fastened in a restrained in an approved forward-facing restraint with an in-built harness or an approved booster seat (this may include an external harness however this is not a legal requirement).

Shopbaby recommend leaving children in the rear-facing position for as long as possible. This is a safer position for all children, especially babies. Most Australian convertible car restraints will hold children rear-facing up to 12kg (please check your instruction manual). The following video shows the importance of the rear-facing position in a collision. Please be aware that some people may find some of the images in this clip disturbing.
