    Brisbane mum and social media influencer Sapphiroula Condoleon thought she was doing the right thing by keeping her almost two-year-old son rear-facing in his car seat.

    But when she posted a video online, she was shocked to receive backlash from many parents who asked why.

    “I got some messages through DMs [direct messaging] saying, I can’t believe you haven’t turned him around yet, he looks so squished,” she said.

    “I was going to turn him at two, and I was like, maybe I’ll book in and get the car seat turned if I can, and just see what they say. And they said he was too little.”

    His shoulders were below the height markers, which can be found on all new Australian standard car seats.
