Online guide to buying a child restraint

All child restraints sold in Australia must comply with the Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 1754 Child restraints for use in motor vehicles. This Standard is one of the most stringent child restraint standards in the world, so child restraints manufactured to this standard offer good protection in a crash. Even so, the level of protection offered by child restraints that comply to the Standard varies, as does the ease with which they can be used properly.
