The place we brought the seat fitted ours and I told DH that i didn't think I trusted the guy. It looked right, it wasn't lose but I just didn't trust the guy doing it. So we went to RACT and sure enough he fitted it incorrectly. The guys at RACT showed DH how to convert it when the time came. So DH and my dad did it together and then DH took it down and they checked it for free and it was fine.
MIL brought one for DD and they take it in and out of the car constantly and I don't think it's safe or installed correctly, I wont let her go in the car with them anymore. They were beyond p!ssed but I didn't care, the seat was lose and not in right I KNOW it wasn't. So boo hoo to them.

We can get our seats fitted, or the installation checked for free here. There are a few people who do it, the lady who runs the baby shop, and also through Population Health. You just have to make an appointment. There are also restraint check days, where you can just rock up (usually a weekend).
My mind boggles at the thought of paying nearly $50 to get a seat checked! Is that charge per seat, or for all of the seats in the car, just out if interest?

i had mine professionally fitted and think everyone should do so, even if just for the first baby so they can show you how it works and also how to follow the instruction booklets (eg. swapping car seat to another car)
surely new mothers can use the baby bonus...??

Moxy - I wasn't implying you were disagreeing
Yes I'm sure baby bonus etc can be used but for some the baby bonus needs to cover other things like furniture, clothes, nappies, formula, other bills etc...
