Best Car Seats

To keep your bub safe on the road, it's important to choose a baby car seat that meets Australian regulations and has the features needed for safety, comfort and ease of use. Here are the main types of car seats available on the market.

Baby capsules are rear-facing car seats which are legally required for babies under 6 months. They also function as baby carriers and pram attachments, and can be easily taken in and out of the car.

Convertible car seats are a good option for those who want a versatile seat that can still be used as your child grows. Some models can be adjusted to be rear-facing or forward-facing, while others are only forward-facing and can be converted from a harnessed front-facing seat to a booster seat.

Booster car seats are forward-facing and are used in conjunction with an adult seatbelt rather than an in-built harness. These seats are designed for children from 4 to around 10 years old.

Maxi-Cosi ModaGreat car seat. Baby loved it from day 1, slept in it well and has used it through toddlerhood. Easy to install and easy to clean as well. Also recommend Maxi-Cosi customer service, they have been great to deal with. Show details ·  1

Mixed feelingsWhile the car seat itself seems comfortable for my grandson and the height adjustment is easy, releasing the straps to loosen or tighten is extremely hard to do. Pressing the lever and pulling the straps is really hard and sometimes I have to pull straps from under the seat. Is this normal? Show details

Excellent choiceExcellent choice for the money.It is booster seat, so it gives you only basic protection, which is more than enough for me.My Volvo will do the rest of the job in case of the accident.Padding could be a little thicker, but again for short distances is ok... Show details

Baby sleeps in carEasy to install and easy to adjust when baby grows. Our baby was premature and fitted in when we came home from the hospital. He now sleeps in the car quite often and seems comfortable.
The only thing that we do t like is the tether strap clip is around the wrong way so it is a but difficult to undo. Show details ·  1
