Installing children’s car seats used to be worse than building an IKEA cupboard from scratch, but with the introduction of ISOFIX child seats, much of the mystery has been solved. You also get a more secure baby seat which doesn’t wobble in your car, which brings valuable peace of mind for any parent.
It’s extremely important your child or baby seat installation is done correctly. According to the RACV, more than 70 per cent of children’s car seats in Australia are not and failing to do so can increase the risk of injury in an accident.
So to find out how to do it the right way, we consulted a professional. Shant from Bondi Child Restraint Fitting Station showed us step by step, how to install a common 0-4 child seat in either forward or rear-facing configurations. This advice is only meant as a guide though, you should always check the owner’s manual that come with your seat for any specific instructions.
Once your child outgrows the rear-facing position (usually around the 12 month mark), it’s time to spin the child seat around to the forward-facing position.
Always progress your child based on their size, rather than age when moving between car seat stages. Every child grows at different rates and it’s much more important to do what is right for your individual child than progress to the next stage just because they pass a certain age.
How to install a booster seat is much the same process.
