My son has out grown his capsule at three months old (he was nearly 9kgast week...). Hoping to get him in a rear facing seat next for as long as possible.
Also does anyone know the rear facing weight limit for the infasecure luxi crown? Crep test results for it are out sometime this month, but so far it looks quite promising.

We changed from the capsule to the maxi cosi Hera rearward facing for DD4 two weeks ago.. She's 7months and 9kg and has so much room left in it to stay RF..
I don't think the new carseats go by weight instead they go by the height markers so once the baby hits the height marker they recommended turning them FF.

We've got a Safe N Sound Meridian AHR which looks like it will last us ages. At 10 months DS was 9kg and 71cm and he'll be rear facing for a good while yet.

My understanding is that "most" safe and sound seats rear-face to 12kg. We have a Meridian AHR seat and it is great
Check out the britax.com.au website for more info

I would get an Infa Neon convertible car seat over the Luxi Crown 0-8years seat. THe Neon has higher height markers for both rear facing and forward facing so you will be able to keep your son rear facing longer and in a harness forward facing for longer. The Neon also has a compact design, even with the higher height markers, so it will take up less room RFing.
Even though it only goes on height markers now and not weight limits, the Luxi Crown is an A1 type restraint - tested with a 9kg dummy rear facing. The Neon is an A2 restraint officially tested with a 12 kg dummy rear facing (although Infa has publicly confirmed that they conduct their own tests to 15kgs rear facing now).
THe Neon is $168 from Big W - $220 cheaper than the Luxi Crown - so you can buy a dedicated booster down the track when your son outgrows the Neon and it will still be less than the Luxi Crown. Dedicated boosters are generally easier to use and fit children better than convertible boosters anyway.
