There is new, unequivocal, real-world evidence that children under age 2 are best protected riding in a rear-facing (RF) CR. Injuries to rear- and forward-facing children under age 2 were studied in crashes from 1998 to 2003.
On August 30, 2008, Joel and his mother were involved in a front car crash. Joel, at 18 mos & 33lbs, was in his front facing car seat and still...broke his neck. Go to JoelsJourney.Org for real life evidence of the benefits of staying rear-facing longer.
