Carrying Precious Cargo?

Before you take that next trip in the car with a  young child, the American Academy of Pediatrics has some new car seat recommendations for All Ages:

Remember ...

Select a car seat based on your child's age, height, and weight.

Keep your child in the proper car seat for as long as possible.

All children under 13 should ride in the back seat.

In a new policy published in the April 2011 the AAP 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 will need to 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.
