(Online PR News) May 4, 2011 – Baby Travel Pros follows recommendations of AAP, one o the worlds leading authorities on child health and safety, to reduce serious injuries .
The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) has refined the recommended time infants and toddlers should remain rear facing from at least 12 months of age to at least 2 years of age. Evidence shows children under 2 are 75% safer in a rear facing car seat then a forward facing car seat. These are not a legal requirement, only recommendations based on best practice for child safety. Baby Travel Pros members of Baby Rental Equipment companies worldwide follow these standards to ensure safety for infants and toddlers.
The AAP found that during an impact from an accident, the rear facing child slides up the back of the seat and back down. Forces are reduced around the neck and spine and the forces of the impact is evenly distributed across the car seat and child. “Baby Travel Pros Association is committed to safety and following the reputable authorities guidelines. It is important that parents and caregivers buckle children every time they are riding in a car, no matter how short the journey.”, states Sarah Wyles, Co-founder.
