AAP updates car seat recommendations

The American Academy of Pediatrics has released its new child safety seat recommendations in a policy statement.

The new policy advises parents to keep their toddlers in rear-facing car seats until age 2, or until they reach the maximum height and weight for their seat. It also advises that most children must ride in a belt-positioning booster seat until they have reached 4 feet 9 inches tall and are between 8 and 12 years of age.

Several articles on HealthyChildren.org have been updated to reflect the new policy. Registered users on HealthyChildren.org will also have a chance to win a free car safety seat.

Check it out.
