1 hours ago Stage 3 - Moving to a booster seat - Plunket

1. The truth is that riding in the car poses a risk to everyone in it, especially if theres an accident. This is also true for children, so its important that there are strict guidelines in place to keep them safe. Organizations like the AAP, or American Academy of Pediatrics, know what will keep a child protected, so their car seat recommendations should not only be trusted, but followed to ensure that your little ones are as safe as can be. Child car seat guidelines are designed to keep kids safe while they are passengers in the car. The rules are broken down into ages. This is because seatbelts cant effectively protect a person if they arent tall enough and are under a certain weight. Until a child reaches this point, they need a little more help to keep them out of harms way. Here are the most widely-recognized recommendations. They should be followed not only to keep your offspring safe, but because these rules sometimes are backed up by laws. Youll need to look into your state laws to see the specific requirements for your area. You can also check out http://kidsittingsafe.com/ for helpful information to protect your whole family. Various studies have been carried out on rear facing vs forward facing car seats and the results all confirm that children are significantly safer being rear facing. As we reported in our compilation of car seat statistics, one major study concluded there is a 76% increase in risk of serious injury of newborns to 2-year-olds in a car crash when in forward-facing car seats compared to rear-facing car seats. Remember to always use your best judgment and make sure that a car seat properly seats your baby and fits into your back seat effectively. The straps should also be secure and allow for limited movement. Read all the instructions that come with the item, so you know everything it can help your child with, and so you know when to replace it. This will help you be more informed and make your baby safer.
