    Default Car seat that can rear face for ~2 years.

    I'm sure there are carseats like this, but it's overwhelming trying to find the info.

    Ds has outgrown capsule, but we're pretty keen on prolonging rear facing for safety.

    Anyone have one/know of some that allow child to rear-face for longer?

    Any pointers to get me started would be a great help.

    Thank you

    It goes by weight, maximum for Australia is 12kg. We have a Safe-n-Sound Premiere Retractor which goes to 12kg rearward facing.

    You will find most 0-2 car seats a rearward or forward facing. I have safe and sound premier and it's been used for all 3 kids :-)

    Thanks Kelly and Princess.

    I can't find any on ebay. Does the premier have another name?

    What's the difference between the retractor and the regular premier?

    Our Safety first is rear facing up to 18 kgs, but of course the box says 12 months.

    Theres plenty of seats that will last till that age if your child is short, all the new seats are based on height markers not weight although they are still tested to a certain weight.

    They are mostly weight based and length . I'd have loved dd to read face as long as possible but she's pretty long and it didn't look right!

    If you go on the Britax website they have a good range and give you all the specs too.
