What car seat comes after the infant car seat/carr
The best car seat for your child is a rear-facing car seat.
It has been proven in many studies that it is five times safer than a forward facing car seat. Upon impact the force of the blow is spread evenly across the child’s back, neck and head, whereas in a forward facing car seat the force is more centered and is likely to injure the neck. In rear-facing car seats the children under the age of 2 are 75 % less likely to die or suffer severe body injuries.
For 30 years people in Scandinavia have been seating their children into rearward facing car seats until the age of four and the accident evidence shows that this has significantly decreased the number of injuries in children.
In 2012 the American Association of Pediatrics strongly recommended that all children should remain rear-seated until they are 2 years old.
However, in Scandinavia it is recommended to do so until the child is 4 years of age. Children this small have weak neck muscles and a proportionally large head, so forward facing car seats are very risky before the child is 4 years old.
Furthermore, a new European car seat regulation called ‘i-Size’ advises that the children be seated in a rearward position at least until they are 15 months old.
As you can see, the best choice you can make is to buy a rear-facing car seat for your child. You can check out our store http://www.kindseats.com/store for more information about individual car seats and order one that will best suit your wishes.
