Your toddler seat is that which typically sees your child from they have outgrown their infant carrier until they are ready for a high back booster. We will always promote Extended Rear Facing (ERF) seats at this stage as we believe they are the safest option available for your child. Some rear-faci...ng seats are suitable up to 18kg (approximately 4 years), while some others will be suitable right up to 25kg (approximately 6 years). Those which grow up to 25kg are particularly useful for those children who are heavier or taller than average as you will get much more use out of it, or they are great for those who just wish to rear-face for as long as possible. Your child’s skeleton is made up of mostly cartilage, which over time turns to bone. As they grow, their bones fuse together to form bigger bones and specifically in the spine, the vertebrae starts to form at 3 years of age, but will not be fully developed until 6 years of age. So even if you have a larger than average child, their bones will still develop at the same rate. This is why we recommend rear-facing for as long as possible for all children, because in the event of a collision, your baby’s whole body is protected by the seat as it absorbs the impact over the whole head, neck and spine, whereas in a forward-facing seat, your child’s torso is held in place but their head, neck and limbs are thrown forward causing great strain on the neck specifically, which may lead to severe injuries or possibly even death. We also offer forward-facing toddler seats as we understand that rear-facing seats will not suit all situations.
