Child Car Seats

Published on Mar 21, 2011 at 1:22 pm in Uncategorized.

Sarah Emmons has written an interesting article concerning rear facing child car seats for parenting.com. Doctors are now recommending that your child remain in a rear facing car seat until age 2. Here is an excerpt–

“A 2007 study in the journal Injury Prevention found that children under age 2 are 75 percent less likely to die or to be severely injured in a crash if they are rear-facing. Another study found riding rear-facing to be five times safer than forward-facing.

“A rear-facing child safety seat does a better job of supporting the head, neck and spine of infants and toddlers in a crash, because it distributes the force of the collision over the entire body,” said Dennis Durbin, M.D., F.A.A.P., a pediatric emergency physician and co-scientific director of the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and lead author of the policy statement and accompanying technical report.”
