Car Seat Safety

Why is riding rear-facing the safest?

Children placed in the rear-facing position are 5 times safer in the event of a frontal collision. Frontal collisions are the most common and pose the largest threat; rear-facing seats are designed to absorb the energy after the forces have been spread across the infant’s back, which is the strongest part of their body. Many newer seats have a higher weight and height limit for rear-facing capabilities.

When do I move my baby into a forward-facing?

Since rear-facing is the safest, it is best to keep your child rear-facing as long as possible. For forward-facing, your child should be a minimum of 22lbs, 1 years of age and should be able to walk unassisted before being in a forward-facing car seat. Always follow manufacturer’s recommendations for height and weight requirements.
