    Nice try to deflect from the fact that you leave your kids unattended in a car against recommendations. !
    Extended rear facing car seats are available in Australia now I believe right? And I highlighted where on the website you linked it says children are better protected in a rearfacing seat that fits. So does your ds2 rearface?

    A dangerous sweeping statement.
    Just ask the ambo's - Supervising ones young kids near water should never be a discretionary guideline that parents follow only when it doesn't inconvenience them.

    I prefer to think of it as a robust discussion about child safety.
    Regardless - you seen to be enjoying being in the thick of it so I hope you cover yourself in that slightly rude description.

    I do.

    ETA: care to actually answer any questions above or is your contribution to the discussion only about how everyone else can do better or only commenting on any cheeky comment myself or big red makes?

    Yes I saw that too when I posted it
    It surprised me that the guidelines were not specific about rear facing past a certain age or weight. I was trying to look for something substantial like that (really!) but couldn't find it.

    It said as long as the child fits in the seat.

    ETA: considering extended rear facing seats are available in OZ now I would consider that telling you that keep your child rear facing as long as possible is safest.
