PRODUCT RANGE

When it comes to choosing a booster seat, you’ll want to consider four main factors to ensure that you pick the right one. These include safety features, comfort for your child and how the seat will fit into your vehicle.

Here are the main areas to consider when looking for a booster seat, with some examples of how our range includes these features:

 

Safety Features

The Mother’s Choice child booster seat range offers safety features to keep your child secure when traveling. We appreciate that safety is at the top of your list when it comes to being out with your child and we’ve added features that give you peace of mind.

One example of this is protection and many of our booster seats offer the Air Protect Superior Side Impact Protection for the head to provide extra protection in the event of an accident.

 

Size

The law as it relates to car restraints in Australia is age and seated height based.   Depending on their seated shoulder height, by approximately the age of four, a child must be sitting in a forward-facing child restraint, such as a booster with an inbuilt harness, or an unharnessed booster seat with a properly fastened and adjusted seat belt.

They must remain in a booster seat until at least seven years of age again subject to their shoulder height. There are booster car seats in the Mother’s Choice range that are suitable for children from six months up to approximately 8 years of age to keep them in a car seat for longer. It is also extremely important that all car restraints are installed correctly.

Our seats, such as the Zeal AP Booster seat, have an easy one-handed 5 position headrest adjustment so you can accurately adjust to fit your child and change it as they grow.

It’s important that you continuously check out your seats’ height marker guide to ensure that your child’s seat is still at the right size and they haven’t outgrown it.

 

Comfort

Our range also has wicking fabric to keep your child comfortable in their seat when traveling. Padded armrests are features on Booster Car Seats that provide added comfort for your child.

The benefit of removable machine washable inserts means you can easily remove, clean and replace them to ensure your child’s car seat always stays fresh and clean.

For smaller vehicles, look for a car seat that is comfortable yet narrow, such as the Zeal AP. If you have three children in booster seats, three of these seats can be positioned across the back of most vehicles.

 

Additional features

Our range offers additional features to help make your life easier and offer additional comfort for your child too.

For example, while you’re traveling in the car, you might find that cup holders that are attached to your child’s car seat can make a big difference.

Your child can easily store their bottle within arms reach and help themselves to a drink as you safely drive.

​Installation tips for booster seats

Before installing your car booster seat, always read the vehicle owner’s manual and the car safety seat manual.

  • Booster seats must be used with lap and shoulder belts. Use the plastic clip or guide on your booster seat to correctly position the lap and shoulder belts.
  • Ensure that the lap belt sits low and snug across your child’s upper thighs.
  • Ensure that the shoulder belt fits across your child’s chest and shoulder and sits away from the neck.

Booster seat FAQs

Are booster seats legal in Australia?

Booster seats are legal in Australia, provided that they comply with Australian Standards AS/NZS 1754. It is illegal to use booster seats that do not meet this Standard.

When can a child use a car booster seat?

It is recommended that children use a car booster seat from six months of age. Children may stop using a car booster seat when they are able to be safely restrained by a seatbelt to prevent injury.

Can a 4-year-old sit in a booster seat?

Provided that the child meets the height and weight requirements of the booster seat, a four year old may be able to sit in a booster seat.

At what age can a child use a backless booster?

Although car seats generally cater to a particular age range, children come in all shapes and sizes. A child can use a backless booster when they meet the height and weight requirements of the seat.

Is a backless booster seat illegal in Australia?

Provided that the child meets the height and weight requirements of the backless booster car seat, it is not illegal to use one in Australia. When using a backless booster seat, it is important that it complies with Australian Standards AS/NZS 1754.

When can a child come out of a booster seat in Australia?

This varies for each child, but generally when the child can be safely restrained in a seatbelt, they may come out of a booster seat. 

What if my car has only lap belts in the back seat?

Lap belts should never be used with booster seats. They are compatible with seats that face the rear only, convertible car seats, and forward-facing seats with harnesses. Other options include:

  • Installing shoulder belts in your car;
  • Using a travel vest;
  • Considering another car that has lap belts in the back seat.

What is the difference between high-back boosters and backless boosters?

Both of these boosters raise your child so that the seat belt fits properly around them and reduces the risk of injury. High-back boosters come with harnesses that can be adjusted or removed, depending on the size of your child, and these boosters are suitable for use in vehicles with low seat backs. Backless boosters are generally inexpensive and can be used in vehicles with high seat backs and high headrests. 

National child restraint laws

Australian law requires all children to be safely fastened in the correct child car seat for their age and size. Children who are properly secured in an approved car seat are less likely to be injured in a car crash.

  • Up to the age of six months, children must be secured in a rear-facing restraint.
  • From six months of age but under four years old, children must be secured in either a rear or forward-facing car seat with an inbuilt harness.
  • From four years old but under seven years old, children must be secured in a forward-facing car seat with an inbuilt harness or an approved booster seat.
  • From seven years old but under 16 years old, it is strongly recommended to use a booster seat for children who are too small to be restrained properly by a seatbelt.

The Mother’s Choice range of child booster seats suits all budgets and needs to make traveling in the car with your child safe and comfortable.
