Rear Facing Car Seat

 

A Rear Facing Carseat is a car seat that is purposefully designed to face backwards when fitted into a motor vehicle.

They are designed for babies and for toddlers. These types of car seats are reported to be safer for small children as opposed to forward facing cars seats. Rear facing car seats offer a greater degree of protection to the baby's head in the event of an accident.

Some vehicles may not fit the larger versions of the Car Seat Rear Facing. Another point to consider would be that most modern cars are fitted with an airbag in the front passenger side. When you fit a rear facing car seat it is important that the airbag is turned off as if this air bag is deployed in the vent of an accident then it could harm your child in the front seat. The airbag in you car is designed to inflate and deflate a a great speed around 160 miles per hour and obviously if the baby seat was hit by this it will obviously cause a serious injury. Another point with airbags is that you may not be able to turn your front airbag off, this will obviously depend on the make and model of your vehicle.

A Rear Facing Child Car Seat is not only safer for babies than a forward facing one but gives your baby the opportunity to see you during your journey in the car.
