Parents in New England Should be Aware of Changes to Rear-Facing Car Seats
The age limit for rear-facing car seats has changed. This, according to updated recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The AAP's website say children should be riding in rear-facing car seats until they reach the height or weight limit for the seat.
Before the updated change, AAP said children should be using rear-facing car seats at least until 2 years of age. The updated recommendation nixes the age-specific guidelines.
