Maybe it’s because I have three small grandchildren, but these days I find myself paying much more attention to articles about children’s car seats. In recent news, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revised its child restraint guidelines so that they categorize by age rather than by type of child seat. The result is that “NHTSA is advising parents and care givers to keep children in each restraint type, including rear-facing, forward-facing and booster seats, for as long as possible before moving them up to the next type of seat,” according to a statement published by the federal agency.

This news is in concert with the latest advice from the American Academy of Pediatrics.
