What are the rules regarding transporting a newborn baby in a car?
Your car seat must have modern fixtures and fitting, complying with current Australian safety standards. Babies under 6 months of age need to be placed in rear facing child seats with a 5-point harness in place. By law, babies and children under 4 years of age must travel in the back seat of your car, if it has two rows of seats.
