AAP Child Passenger Safety Recommendations

In August 2018, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) revised its child passenger safety (CPS) recommendations.

The latest recommendations call for cchildren to remain in a rear-facing car safety seat as long as possible, until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their seat. Most convertible seats have limits that will allow children to ride rear-facing for two years or more.
