AAP Child Passenger Safety Recommendations

In March 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) revised its child passenger safety (CPS) recommendations, with CHOP’s Dennis Durbin, MD, MSCE, serving as the lead author of the revisions.

The latest recommendations call for children to remain in rear-facing child safety seats until they reach age 2 or until they outgrow the height and weight limits determined by the manufacturer of their rear-facing child safety seat.
