    Default which car seat will rf the longest?

    Im after a seat that will have bubs rf for awhile. I have a large car so size isnt an issue. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    When I was looking into this I found the infa secure seats (0-4) range to be the highest height marling. We ended up getting the kompressor caprice and DS (nearly 18 months) is still rf although I looked at the markers the other day and he is mighty close to needing to be turned. In saying that he is tall for his age.

    Can you hold off a little longer? The new isofix seats should be available very soon!

    Otherwise, we chose the Infasecure Neon as it has one of the highest current RFing markers. It's currently on special at bigw.

    From what I've gathered reading the Infasecure Facebook page, they should be here within the next few months.

    The standards will be mandated by the end of the month which means isofix will be able to be sold. At the same time manufacturers can release a4 seats which will rearface an average 3 yo. Currently the rf markers on the infa 0-4 seats is about 34cm, the sns meridian sict is about 36 and the new seats will be about 38cm bum to shoulder height before having to turn.

    I use the Maxi Cosi Hera with DD4. She stayed RF for around 18months and still had plenty of room to go. She now uses it FF which will last her until at least 4 years.
