Car Seat Safety Tips From Julie Vallese, Safety 1st Consumer Safety Expert. Importance of Rear Facing
In March of 2011 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updated their car seat recommendations advising that children should remain rear facing until the age of two, or until they reach the maximum height and weight requirements allowed by their car seat. According to a study in the Journal of Injury Prevention children under the age of two are 75 percent less likely to die or be severely injured in the event of a car crash if they are rear facing. When a child is rear facing their head, neck and spine are better supported and in the event of an accident, crash forces are distributed over the child’s entire body. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, 75% of car seats are installed incorrectly. Never use used or old car seats. To read all tips from Julie Vallese follow this link
