This is the story of Joel, an 18-month-old baby who broke his neck in a crash. He was using a front-facing car seat. Watch his story as narrated by his grandfather.
According to several studies, it’s better to keep your kids rear-facing as long as possible. This car seat recommendation chart by safercar.gov is only based on the age of the child. However, we should always keep in mind the height, weight, and the stature of our kids when choosing their car seats.
