Warning to parents about child car seats

12th June 2009

Writing in the British Medical Journal, doctors warn that most UK parents are too quick to switch their children to front-facing car seats.

They say mounting evidence suggests it is safer for children to use a rear-facing seat until the age of four and parents should be advised accordingly. The position was supported by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. At present in the UK, it is common practice to switch babies to a front-facing seat at around the age of eight months.
