With a rearward facing infant seat in the front, obviously the airbag has be switched off.

If the (elder) child is in a forward facing child seat, it belongs in the back. Airbags, if fitted, should be left on (armed).
In Oz small children are not allowed in the front seat as the adult airbag capacity kills them. Same rule for child car seats. Some car manuals list the restriction based on height and weight.
