Rear Facing Basics
Rear facing in the vehicle starts when a child is born and goes up typically until they have outgrown their convertible child restraint in the rear-facing mode. When a child is rear facing, their head, neck, and spine are protected by the shell of the seat during a collision. The American Academy of Pediatrics makes the same recommendation as our SaskSeats team: "children should remain in a rear-facing car safety seat as long as possible, until they reach the highest weight or height allowed by their seat." This could be between the ages of 3 and 4, or longer, depending on the seat.
