New Child Car Seat Recommendations 2011

The American Academy of Pediatrics just released their new recommendations for Child Car Seat Safety.

New Child Safety Seat Guidelines 

• Rear-facing car seat until age 2.
• Forward-facing car seat with a harness until child reaches the maximum height or weight for that seat, usually after age 4.
• Booster seats until the child is at least 4-foot-9-inches tall and between 8 and 12 years of age.
• Lap-and-shoulder seat belts for older children who have outgrown their booster seat. All children should ride in the back seat until age 13.
