PA Child Passenger Safety Law Infographic

In 2016 PA joined a growing number of states by passing a law requiring children to remain rear facing until at least age 2. While I was rather disappointed to see that updates weren’t made across the board, I was (and still am) thrilled about this change.
It’s important to remember that regardless of where you live, laws rarely require best practice across the board. This often leaves caregivers feeling confused, so I included some suggestions on this infographic.

Age 2 is a Minimum to Keep Kids RF to, Not a Maximum

Did you know that the recommendation of "rear facing to age 2" is a minimum recommendation, not a maximum? Rear facing offers enormous safety differences and children over the age of 2 continue to benefit from those safety differences. We strongly encourage you to keep your child rear facing until the upper height or weight limit of their seat is met.

ERF FTW!

Did you know that there are car seats that will rear face to as much as 50 pounds and seats that can get even the tallest of children to about age 4 RF?! Rear facing is so much safer! Don't rush that next step! "C" is still rear facing in a Graco Size4Me, in a Hyundai Elantra at 4 years old, 38lbs & 41" tall. Safely. Happily. Comfortably.
