Found this one, its convertible so it can rear face and forward face. The price is pretty crazy at $250 but the rest on that site are 300-500 except the cosco one which is $175 (we have that brand here and its only $40! but the cosco one has chest clips if you are interested in one that has one)

Oh thank you so very much :) yep very crazy prices here LOL and they say this is a good country to live in...yah right lol. I will take a look at the website though. :)



I'm a bit eh about chest clips, they look safe but I've heard they can be bad if you got into a wreak etc, I dunno lol.

Depending on where you are, go to Mother Care or The Baby Factory. Both have great, safe seats.

I would trust a Safe N Sound seat, but only because they are owned by Britax...which is a top Manufacturer here in the US and the only seats I use for our kids! As far as I can find, they just keep saying it rear faces till approx. 12mo old. It does say your child has to be above the shoulder height maker (which you can't see in the stock photo because of the angle and padding) to forward face. It's interesting to see the difference in opinion on rear facing from country to country! Good luck!

I got mine from Plunket but the warehouse sells them http://www.thewarehouse.co.nz/red/catalog/product/Evenflo-Tribute-Convertible-Car-Seat?SKU=1587943



It's slim too, I have 2 RF carseats and a booster in the back and they all fit good. And richard who's tall can have his seat back comfortably when driving without compromising the recline

Yea I think so! I'venever heard of any issues. Rico and aura had evenflo capsules. And the carseat I linked is what aura has now. I just think its ugly lol. I want a safety first so the girls carseats match lol. But in west auck we get those evenflo carseats for $30 so richard wouldn't let me get an safety first :(
