Why rear facing is safer:
While parents are legally able to turn their children’s restraint to forward facing at six months. there are studies that show that it is far safer to keep them rear facing for longer. As Safety Leaders, Britax recommend keeping your children in a rearward facing restraint for as long as possible. (rear for a year at least!), depending on when they have exceeded the upper height markers on their current child car seat.
Neuroscience Research Australia and Kidsafe recently released the National Guidelines for the Safe Restraint of Children Travelling in Motor Vehicles report, which outlined why rear facing options are safer for children up to the age of four.
“Rear facing restraints are highly effective in preventing injuries if used correctly.
They fully support the child’s head and neck in the event of a crash,” states the report.
“This is very important as infants have relatively large heads and weak necks.
Hence putting them at particularly high risk of serious injuries if the head and neck are not supported.
Finally, “Rearward facing restraints support the child’s head and neck in severe frontal crashes better than forward facing restraints.”
