Until age two as a matter of fact. According to an article published today in “The New York Times,” the American Academy of Pediatrics is now advising that babies stay in rear facing car seats until the age of two to prevent the worst outcomes in auto accidents.
I know, I know…it’s such a pain in the neck to reach back from the front seat and try to calm your rear-facing baby and ply her with puffs. And signing up to ride back there with her for two years is not so awesome either. But let’s be frank, neither is a fatal car accident.
Read the article. Keep your baby protected. Then buckle up, kids, and enjoy the ride.
