All car seats must be installed rearward facing from newborn to approx. 30 months of age or until the infant's shoulders meet the middle height marker because in an accident, rear-facing car seat reduces impact on a baby's vulnerable head and neck. A rearward facing car seat protects your child's head and neck by spreading the forces over the whole back.
Car seats can be used in forward- facing position with built-in harness from approx. 30 months of age to approx. 4 years of age or until the child's shoulder reach the top shoulder heigh marker.
