Car Seat Recommendations for 2011 from American Academy of Pediatrics
We recently moved our youngest into a booster seat and out of her 5 point harness car seat which made me nervous but so far so good. I made sure to get a booster that I could tether into the car and I found a wonderful Britax seat that adds an extra anchor point that most boosters don’t have. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all children should stay in booster seats until they are between the ages of 8-12 years old and/or reach 4 feet 9 inches tall or until the seat belt fits them properly. Another major update is the recommendation that no child should be allowed to ride in the front seat until they are 13 years old. Each year thousands of young children are killed or injured in car crashes. Lets do our part in keep the kids as safe as possible while traveling in a car.
