Our Maxi-Cosi convertible car seat range offers the perfect solution for parents wanting to keep their child safer for longer. Offering superior safety features such as Air ProtectTM and GCELL, with Maxi-Cosi you can feel assured that we have your child’s safety taken care of. 

Convertible car seats are for use in rearward facing position until your child’s shoulders reach the lower shoulder eight marker. The convertible car seat then can be used in forward facing position until the shoulders reach the upper shoulder height marker, (approx. 4 years of age). 

At Maxi-Cosi we believe that your child is safer rearward facing for longer so that is why we recommend that you keep your child rearward facing until their shoulder reaches the middle shoulder height marker, around 30 months.

A convertible car seat is commopnly referred to as a forward-facing car seat. All convertible car seats have their own inbuilt six-point harness system, and this harness is used from birth until your child is approximately 4 years of age, or until their shoulder reaches the upper height marker.

Convertible carseats are a very popular option for Australian families as they easily convert from rearward to forward facing - and allow children to be fully harnessed for as long as they can fit in it.

When selecting your first baby car seat one option is to start your baby in a baby capsule and progress to a convertible car seat, then a booster seat, but some parents prefer to use a convertible car seat which can change modes to allow for longer periods of use.

The main benefit of convertible car seats is that some allow young children to face rearward for longer like our Maxi-Cosi Vela, Euro and Moda convertible car seats which allow you to keep your child rearward facing for up to 30months.

At Maxi-Cosi we believe that keeping your child fully harnessed is a safer way to travel, so it's important to enderstand the differences between rearward facing and forward facing before you choose your very first convertible car seat. 

Rearward facing:

All convertible car seats must be installed rearward facing from newborn to approx. 30 months of age or until the infant's shoulders meet the middle height marker.  In an accident, a rear-facing car seat reduces impact on a baby's vulnerable head and neck. A rearward facing car seat protects your child's head and neck by spreading the forces over the whole back as illustrated below.

Forward facing:

All Maxi-Cosi convertible car seats can be used in forward- facing position with a built-in harness from approx. 30 months of age to approx. 4 years of age or until the child's shoulder reach the top shoulder heigh marker.

Here is an example of how to correctly install your convertible car seat into your car in the forward facing position.
