New Car Seat Recommendations From The AAP

 

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently published new car seat recommendations, which affect children from birth through 12 years of age.  Some of the biggest changes are summarized below:

 

1 - Children should remain in rear-facing care seats until two years or until they reach the maximum weight and height for their car seat.

 

2 - Most children will need to ride in a belt-positioning booster seat until they have reached 4 feet 9 inches and are between 8 and 12 years of age.
