Why Young Kids Should Be Seated In Rear Facing Safety Seats Longer
The American Academy of Pediatrics have actually been recommending parents to keep young children in rear-facing safety seats until age 2 or til they surpass the car seat's height or weight limit for over three years now, but numerous moms and dads s
27, September 2014: We need to return to a 2007 research released in the journal "Injury Prevention," which found that children under the age of 2 were 75% less likely to be killed or end up being significantly hurt in a crash if they were seated in a rear-facing security seat. At the time a leading US pediatric physician said that rear-facing child safety seats did a much better task of supporting the head, neck and spine of babies and young children throughout a crash, as they dispersed the force of the accident over the whole body.
However today the reality is that parents seem to have forgotten all that good advice seeing forward-facing as the simpler choice. It goes without stating that it s so much easier to connect with a youngster while facing forward, and much less uncomfortable to reach in the seat. But shouldn't safety be moms and dad's main concern? Shouldn't they consider a kid's total security first over their own comfort? I put those concerns to Mr Neil Speight, co-founder of Nevada based business "Freddie and Sebbie." Who responded... "By law it is minimally acceptable to switch over the safety seat to a forward-facing position at one year of age, but I really think parents can do better than that, as security really should be their major concern when children are involved. Relating to convenience, I can rather understand how moms and dads feel about a need for the closet contact possible with their babies, even when driving, so being able to see them with the motorist's mirror would definitely be a comforting benefit."
He went on to explain how he discovered a solution that would permit parents to have visual contact when required for children sat in a rear-facing security seat... "I realized that by putting a mirror facing my baby twins called Freddie and Sebbie, that I would be able to see them with the driver's mirror properly positioned. After a quick conversation with my design team manager, (the company) Freddie and Sebbie created a large sized 360-degree adjustable baby car mirror, which rotates and pivots to get the best view of a rear-facing baby or young child."
Mr Speight stated how vital he thought it was to keep youngsters in a rear-facing seat for as long as possible, and how he hoped that his business's new item would assist moms and dads to make the best choice, if not just for their own children's safety. He had these additional recommendations for parents... "First, all moms and dads have to think about changing their youngster back to rear-facing if they aren't at present. As far as the safety seat is concerned, just make sure it's fixed properly to the car. Also make certain the harness is snug over the child, and that the chest clip is connected correctly, and finally check that either the seat belt or latch system are properly installed."
"Freddie and Sebbie" have once again come to the rescue of parents requiring sensible accessory solutions for their babies and kids. Neil rounded off by stating... "I think the back seat mirror is the perfect solution for those moms and dads who are worried when they can't see their infant while driving." The Freddie and Sebbie backseat mirror is just sold on Amazon.com.
