Why hire a baby capsule for 6 months?

With so many child car seats and baby capsules available, it’s good to give yourself some breathing space before you commit to a seat long term.

Hiring is also a great solution if you are juggling multiple child car restraints in the same vehicle and waiting for toddlers to move the their next seat. 

Peace of mind from the very first trip

The drive home from hospital with a newborn is perhaps the longest journey you’ll ever take and with a low birth weight baby it is even more stressful.

At Kidsafe Queensland, we can help put your mind at rest. Our team of qualified Type One fitters expertly fit the safest car seats and baby capsules available. We can also teach you all the tips and tricks, making sure you know how to get baby in and out safely.

We support you throughout the first 6 months

With our Bringing Baby Home Safely program we wanted to do more than just hire you a baby capsule – we wanted to empower you with simple injury prevention strategies to help you through the most difficult time of raising a child.

Statistics show that children are at the highest risk of injury in the first 5 years – even more so within the first 12 months of life. Throughout your hire period, we will send monthly emails that keep you one step ahead of your babies development so that you can keep them safe at home, on the road and at play.

It includes information about:

Using baby slings and carriers safely
Safe sleeping

How to reduce risks of falls
Risk of noise and common household poisons
How to reduce risks of choking and strangulation

Short term hire of child car seats in Brisbane 

If you have visitors from interstate or need to transport extra children for a short term, then hiring a child car restraint is a great option.

By law in Australia, all children up to seven years of age must be transported in a child car seat (restraint) that meets Australian Standard AS/NZS 1754. From 7 years old, children can legally sit on an adult seat and use the adult seat belt. However, as any school yard will demonstrate, every child grows at a different rate and although the law uses age to determine how a child should be transported, the size of the child is what matters.

Kidsafe Queensland’s qualified Type 1 Fitters are able to advise you on the safest seating option that meets your hire needs.
