Finding the correct car seat for your child
We have a large stock of child car seats available for short term hire. We have child seats suitable from newborn all the way to 8 years old. Below are some of the range of car seats on offer.
Convertible Car Seat (Birth – 4 Years)
For child from newborn to 12 months, we recommend the child seat in a rearward facing position. This gives the child a higher level of safety and protection as they may not be able to fully support their head in a up-right position.
Australian law requires that all child below the age of 6 months must seat in a rearward position. Therefore, you may request to have the seat fitted in a forward position if you wish. However, most manufacturers, parents and doctors recommended a child to seat backwards beyond 6 months.
