Moms, this is going to change how your children travel in a car!
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) officially revised its recommendations regarding buckling up baby. Most notably -- children should be in rear-facing seats until the age of 2.
The "Today" show walked parents through each of the new safety guidelines. Be sure to watch!
What You Need to Know:
Infant seats are always rear-facing.
A baby stays in an infant seat until it reaches the limit of the seat -- check with the specifications marked on your car seat.
Convertible seats should now face the rear -- until your child is 2 years old (as long as within the limits of the seat).
Children should be kept in a booster seat until the child is 4'9", which is roughly between 8 and 12 years of age. This is to make sure the seat belt secures in the correct place.
Children should be in the rear of a car until age 13.
Momlogic wants to know: How do you feel about these new guidelines? Does it bother you that you won't be able to look at your children in the rearview mirror until the age of 2?
