This morning I see that the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) have published a new policy that states that children should be kept in rear facing car seats until age 2. As thoughts of changing my recent search of car seats to convertible ones tug at my brain, I come across a blog asking how many parents are going to follow the guidelines. Really? Statistics show that children under the age of 2 are 75% less likely to die or be severely injured in a car crash.if they are rear-facing. The new guidelines also suggest children then transition into a booster seat until they are 4 feet 9 inches tall and are between 8 and 12 years old. Maybe I should add booster seat to my list of things to obsess about while I am at it. Luckily the AAP knows all about moms like me and have a list of approved car safety seats and boosters. Let the stalking begin!
