Keep Children Rear-Facing Longer
Rear-facing: the safer position
Rear-facing car seat positions support a child's head, neck, and back substantially better in the most common and most severe types of vehicle crashes. In a rear-facing position, the entire car seat's shell and structure helps to better spread out crash forces on a child's body.
For maximum car seat safety, leading scientists and car safety organizations (including the American Association of Pediatrics) all recommend keeping children rear-facing in their car seats for as long as possible. But here’s the reality. Parents turn convertible car seats forward-facing sooner than they should. A big reason why is because parents find it easier to get the child in and out of the car in forward-facing position.
That is why Orbit Baby designs its convertible car seat to deliver safety and daily convenience without compromise. Orbit Baby parents find it easier to extend rear-facing usage into the toddler years with the unique dock-and-rotate SmartHub system. The G3 Toddler Car Seat rotates side-facing (until the child reaches 35 lbs) for true ease of loading.
