Don't seat children aged 3 or under in a forward facing car seat!!!



According to the latest official Government advice, "Your child can use a forward-facing child car seat when they’re over 15 months old."

https://www.gov.uk/child-car-seats-the-rules/using-a-child-car-seat-or-booster-seat

Have you seen conflicting advice anywhere else please? I want to make sure I've got it right for my children.

Thanks

Don't confuse 'legal' with 'safe' - the law is way behind what technical experts consider to be the safest way for children to travel in the car. Rear facing until age 4 should be the bare minimum, my daughter is nearly 5 and because she's small for her age she'll be rear facing for at least another two years, this article explains why news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm

Good luck with getting a 4 year old in a rear facing seat (because of their legs)

​my 5.5 year old fits just fine when she sits in her brother's rear facing seat. Please research before making ignorant comments.

​Milestone can be used rear facing until 13kg before it needs to go forward facing. Nautilus can only go forward facing which isn't safe for a 9kg baby.

From reading all the links here, it would seem that due to whiplash effect on young kids whose heads are still pretty large compared to their bodies, and on a weaker neck than older kids, being in a forward facing seat when you rear end the car in front is bad. Surely then when you are rear ended, the reverse is true, and a front facing seat is better, as the child's head will be pushed into the seat lining?

For someone who's never rear ended anyone, but has been rear ended 3 times, i'd consider front facing seats safer for reasons made above.

For those who have a history of driving into other people because you aren't paying attention to the cars ahead, and not leaving a safe gap then, yes, you should probably buy a rear facing seat.
