Car Seat Safety

The AAP and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, in two separate guidelines, recommended that children should use rear-facing car seats until age 2 and that those age 12 and below should ride in the back seat. The AAP said in its recommendation, published in Pediatrics, that parents should switch to rear-facing car seats that can support heavier children up to age 2 when their child outgrows the weight limits on an infant car seat.
