New AAP Guidelines for Rear-Facing Car Seats
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has recently updated its recommendations regarding rear-facing car seats. The AAP is always stated that infants should be in a rear-facing car seat, but they have now extended that recommendation to children for as long as possible, or until the child reaches the highest weight or height specified by the car seat manufacturer. I have provided you some links for more information on the new recommendation. Of course, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to us at 317-582-7257 and ask to speak with a nurse.
