Just having a little bitch because I had to turn my 14 month old from rear facing to forward facing in her car seat yesterday and I am rather pissed about it! Australian standards state that a child can only be rear facing until 12kg therefore there are no rear facing car seats on the market that cater for heavier weights. I am pissed because the information is so dam outdated and it puts my daughter at risk, I want to keep her rear facing until she is 2 or even 3 but legally I can't, I even looked at importing car seats from the US but it's not allowed. How can something that's safer not be allowed!! I wish there was something I could do to change it! Shit!
