We can provide you with the right advice, reliable equipment and the best service possible and we pride ourselves on our professional customer service, friendly, experienced staff.
In 2014 the Christriansen family left their home town of Rockhampton and headed to Townsville, where Rebecca started working for Bubs2Bratz Nursery Hire, a job she loved.
While there she shined with high attention to detail and great customer service. Rebecca fine tuned the car seat and pram cleaning process and achieve great results.
Working ‘out the back’ Rebecca also gained a good understanding of the way prams and car seats were put together, the manufacturers and hire systems.
As Bubs2Bratz Nursery Hire grew Rebecca started supervised installs and in July Rebecca attained ‘Selection and installation of child restraint systems’ Type 1 Child Passenger Safety Technician from ACRI (Australian Child Restraint Resource Initiative).
In September 2016 the Christiansen family made the choice to return home, to Rockhampton and Rebecca saw the need for her skills locally.
She noticed local parents weren’t able to access services that could save them time, money and stress, and so Absolute Baby was ‘born’ in October 2016 providing car safety seat installs and checks & pram and car seat cleaning.
As Absolute Baby grew, Rebecca searched out complimentary services that could further assist the families in CQ.
In February 2017 Absolute Baby added 30 beautiful and stylish maternity dresses that expectant mums and photographers could hire for their maternity photo shoots and events. So mums could cherish their pregnancy and turn their photographs into something their family will enjoy for years to come.
Rebecca attended training in Melbourne, to complete the ACRI ‘Accredited Child Safety Seat Instructor’ course in November 2017, allowing her to provide workplace specific training for various industries including: Automotive Service – repair workshops, vehicle detailers, window tinters; Government departments; social and family services; childcare services and organisations; and family day care educators.
Absolute Baby expanded again in 2018 with short and long term hire of car safety seat, capsule and baby equipment being added to the brand.
The range of modern, high quality baby equipment can be hired at great prices for a week, a few weeks or even a few months to suit the needs of local parents. If families are visiting Rockhampton and Central Queensland, they can expect happy holidays by hiring items from us.
The maternity dress collection continued to grow hitting more than 50 dresses and counting, making it the largest collection in CQ and possibly further afield.
There was a need for Absolute Baby to continue to grow and car safety seat services were offered in Gladstone and Yeppoon on a bi-monthly schedule.
Baby Got Shade car window coverings were added to the range of products available from Absolute Baby and an application service was included too.

As a parent of gorgeous identical twin girls (Avril and Paige), I understand what is involved in starting a family and how parents place the safety of their children beyond all else. I have a strong commitment to children’s safety, especially in the car.
As a family we have experienced first-hand the overwhelming cost of purchasing baby equipment (times two), only to have it gathering dust after less than six months of use. The dilemma of a two children needing the same, sometimes expensive equipment at the same time or the stress of trying to organise a holiday and have to transport lots baby equipment.
You can trust that I am qualified and experienced to help you navigate the world of child car safety seat stages and terminology and will provide you with the best service possible.
Which all means I have been trained specifically by Australia’s only specialist child car safety seat body in fitment, installation and customer education of child car safety seats and I am here to help you navigate the world of child car safety seat stages and terminology.
