giveaway : car seat + booster seat {closed}

posted on: Wednesday, July 17, 2013


This post is sponsored by NRMA Insurance and Kidsafe. You can get your child restraint checked in NSW this week. Click the NRMA Insurance site for more details.


Do you remember your pregnant pre-baby prep? Buying the big ticket items that one by one brought you closer to the day you'd bring home your baby. The cot, the stroller and then... the car seat.

Once that seat goes in you look at it knowing that one day so soon your tiny babe will be snuggled in there and you just can't believe it.

While I made sure that my babies first rides were all super safe with their seats professionally fitted at the hospital, when it came time to turn the seat from rear-facing to front-facing and when it was time to upgrade to a booster I was a wee bit more relaxed.

I've noticed it's really easy to muddle up exactly what type of seat they should be using or how that seat should be fitted (and moving the seats in and out of the grandparents' cars when they take the kids on outings? Small headache-giver right there).


To be honest I'm not always sure I fit the seat back in correctly. This suspicion can probably be confirmed by the mister who will take a look at my seat-fitting and be all, 'What have you done here?'

Apparently I'm not alone in this quandary as 70% of restraints that were checked last year by NRMA Insurance and Kidsafe needed an adjustment.

But as properly fitted car seats are such an important part of keeping the kiddos safe on the road it's not a job I want to get wrong.

If you feel this way too you may be pleased to know that NRMA Insurance and Kidsafe are holding Free Child Restraint Checking Days in NSW this week. Hoorah!

You can just register, turn up and an authorised restraint fitter will check and adjust (if needed) your seat in mere minutes.

And today NRMA Insurance and Kidsafe are giving away a car seat to two baby space readers residing in Australia. Yay!

what will you win?
1 x reader will win a Safety 1st car seat for little ones 6 months - 4 years valued at $349.
1 x reader will win a Infa-Secure forward facing restraint for 4 years -7 years valued at $119.

what do you need to do? 
Simply comment on this post with:

1) which seat you would like to win?

2) in which state can you get your restraint fitted by NRMA Insurance and Kidsafe this week?

3) be sure to include your email address or email it to me at bron@babyspace.net.au.

Good luck!

Apologies to international readers, this competition is open Australia wide only. Giveaway closes at midnight, Sydney time on the 26th of July 2013. If the winner is not contactable via email within 24 hours the giveaway will be redrawn.

  13. 1. We would be eternally grateful for the infa secure booster seat. The seat I have in my car for my older daughter is getting way too small. She has just started taking off her jumper so she can fit in comfortably - argh! That's not cool.
    2. The checks are on in NSW.

  14. Hi Baby Space, what an awesome prize!

    We would absolutely love to win the smaller seat for 6months+
    My parents love taking our 2 year-old daughter on outings but they don't have a car seat installed. We've been swapping cars but now we have a new born baby boy (2 weeks old) and I'm stuck at home when they borrow my car. Winning this prize would be so perfect for our growing family!

  15. Infa-Secure child restraints - leaders in their class,
    producing first class car seats this mum cannot surpass.
    For safety, I believe, doesn’t happen by accident,
    when you invest in quality – this becomes most evident.
    My four year old needs a brand new seat,
    she’s grown up quick, so this can’t be beat.
    We cherish our family outings and fun filled days,
    with Infa-Secure we could continue to play.
    And for that extra piece of mind,
    NRMA and Kidsafe would ensure our seat is properly aligned.
    Reducing the risk of incorrect installation,
    my daughter would be safe with skill and innovation.
