ABSTRACT
The article focuses on preventive measures that should be taken while driving with babies and children. From birth to age 1, babies should be buckled into a rear-facing car seat. If a child reaches 20 pounds before age 1, parents can switch to a convertible car seat. He can be buckled into either a convertible car seat or a toddler car seat, both of which are acceptable until a child weighs 40 pounds. The latest recommendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics is that children should use a booster seat in the backseat of a car until they are eight years old.
