Why doesn’t Which? advocate rear-facing beyond 15 months despite overwhelming evidence that children are much safer and avoid the spinal injuries associated with forward facing seats? You make the valid point about babies’ heads being heavy relative to their bodies but this applies up until at least 4 years of age. Why the inconsistency?

There is absolutely NO way a 11 or 12 year old would be in a car seat. That’s ridiculous. I’m 12 and I can’t even imagine sitting in a car seat like what the heck.

Well im 12 and 165cm and Ive been out of a car seat since I was 8 or 9. Im not at all fat im underweight and I for the love of god cannot fit in any car seat at all. I have tried but they caused me pain and I was left with stiffness in my neck, shoulders and my shoulders are still very stiff and weak now so people will say my parents are bad parents- they arent my doctor and paediatricion said I shouls be taken out of it. Anyway that was before these new laws ans by 8 i was 140cm

I know this is an old video now. But extended rearfacing should have been mentioned. My little girl born in 2012 is still rearfacing so the seats were definitely around in 2015 when this video was made. Poor show when it’s 10x safer it should have been mentioned.

I live in Iowa where the law is babies must be in a rear facing car seat till they are 1 or weigh 20 lbs then they must be in a 5 point harness till age 4 then can move to a booster seat which they can leave at age 6. They can sit in the front seat at age 12 so saying a 12 year old should be in a car seat is just ridiculous. I moved from the booster to a regular seat when I was 7
