    It's more that I'm trying to understand why you seem to be particularly antagonistic or starting debates for the hell of it in a lot of threads lately. It's like the VP of old is back. But go on. Rabbit away.

    Correct me if I am wrong but are there not seats now in Aus that do have quite high markers (some being inexpensive)? Also even if a child is over the official marker does that mean the seat is no longer useable as rear facing?
    Yes there are. The infasecure neon is a great inexpensive seat. Ds is 2 and is still rearfacing in it easily. And he is not a small toddler!! We have two neons, one cost $130 and the other $115.

    Yes, but the VP of old kept things interesting. What's the point of threads where we all agree, or in which people are so PC that others are too scared to voice an alternate opinion.

    Bub Hub was getting boring and predictable. IVF and TTC threads have an important place in BH, but the debate threads make it worth logging on.

    Don't get me wrong, I obviously love a debate. But I tend to find them more interesting when they are genuine debates rather than a member just doing it for the hell of it. But I'm also thinking of other threads with my original comment, not just this one.

    The neon technically isn't extended rear facing. It has a rf market height of 34cm which 90% of 12 month olds. A true erf seat is 39cm and an average 30 month old.

    I would also think a genuine debate refuting studies would mean links to other studies disproving it? Or even articles recommendations from various bodies also advising against the change.

    Just saying 'its all bullocks' is not really debating.

    Even throwing out an opinion of why you think age doesn't make a difference is a start.

    A petition can start discussion with various Australian organisations to maybe change their recommendations. Sitting on our hands and doing nothing is not progress.

    My daughter outgrew this seat rear facing around 8 months. She was in the 95th percentile so unfortunately I would have had to have paid a lot more regardless of wether I could of afforded it or not. That's my main concern, is the cost of seats with higher height markers, as they simply aren't there to be handed down or bought secondhand

    Yes I know. My ds was 75th percentile for height at 12 months and 90th for weight. I think he is still roughly the same percentiles now at 2. So it's certainly reasonable to affordably rearface until at least 12 months of age imo.

    Also the more demand for extended RF the more seats that are nade and the cheaper they become.

    Exactly! And changing the law would do that. ☺️
