Government regulations require all children to be safely fastened in a child car restraint (car seat or capsule) correct for their age and size. It’s advisable to get this installed well before your baby is due.

Choosing A Car Seat

  • Babies under 6 months, must use a rear-facing restraint with an inbuilt harness. It’s best to keep your baby in a rear-facing restraint as long as they can fit in it
  • Children aged 6 months to 4 years, must use rear or forward-facing restraint with an inbuilt harness
  • By law, all car seats used in Australia are required to meet Australian standards.

Installing A Car Seat

  • Rear-facing restraints can be difficult to install, so it’s a good idea to have them fitted at your local fitting station (see your State Government’s Transport website for more details)
  • If you elect to do it yourself, it is advised to have an approved fitter check your work
  • The best position in the vehicle for the car seat is the middle rear seat
  • NEVER put the car seat in the front seat of a car equipped with passenger-side air bags
  • Double check the seat/capsule is secure before each trip. It shouldn’t wobble, twist, tilt or move in any direction more than an inch
