Why use us
Baby on Board are a member of A.C.R.I
Australian child restraint resource initiative
All our friendly staff are fully trained and accredited.
In a crash at just 50kmph, an unrestrained child would be thrown forward with a force 30 to 60 times their body weight. They are also likely to be ejected from the car.
It is not safe to hold a child on your lap. In a crash, the child could be crushed between your body and part of the car's interior. Even if you are using a seat belt, the child would be torn from your arms - you would not be able to hold onto them, no matter how hard you try.
It is also dangerous to put a seat belt around yourself and a child (or around two children).
The safest way for children to travel in cars is in a child seat that is suitable for their weight and size.
Experience shows us that a high proportion of child restraints are incorrectly fitted and used.
Having a seat fitted professionally is a small price to pay for peace of mind.
