    In VIC you don't need car seats in taxis so they don't have them - you just put them on your lap

    Yep that's true but the OP may have been coming from a safety perspective?

    Yeah totally understand that. I won't use them! But they don't have them as its not required so the taxi deivers don't want to outlay the costs unnecessarily.

    When we go to the airport I have hired a private driver with a car seat. One time it was blatantly not installed properly though!!!!

    Looks like these guys do baby seats

    also, when travelling around the city and suburbs there's a great train and tram network you can take the pram on.

    Thanks for all the replies and advice, I kind of figured most taxis male you hold the baby on your lap but I was more looking at the safety aspects. Luckily I seem to have found a place that seems to cater by not only having baby seats but can bring a van and trailer so that my little family and extended family can all travel together. In case anyone has similar problems these guys seem great http://bubstaxi.com.au/our-service/
