According to research from the journal Academic Pediatrics, 75% of parents transition their children into forward-facing car seats way too soon. The consequences of this mistake can be fatal.

Holly Wagner’s 11-month-old son died because he wasn’t property buckled into his car seat. Wagner, like many parents, was not aware it was dangerous for him to face the front of the car: “No one said anything. I wish someone had corrected me and told me he wasn’t restrained properly,” she told ABC7.

If you need help picking out the appropriate safety seat for your child, you can refer to the Good Housekeeping Institute’s purchasing guide for assistance. The institute’s engineers also vetted 22 models on the market and found three that were the best and safest seats for your child.
