Crib Notes: New Car Seat Regulations
Don’t put those car seat mirrors in storage just yet. Today the American Association of Pediatrics released new car seat safety regulations which state that toddler car seats should remain rear facing until the age of 2–a significant increase from the previously accepted age of 1. The new regulations also stipulate that booster seats should be used until a child is 4’9” tall to make sure that a seatbelt would fit properly when they make the transition. What do you think of these new regulations?
