car seats and their pesky "saving lives"
car seat in bikeKids should stay in rear-facing car seats until they are 2 years old according to the AAP. Word on the street is rear-facing seats are safest for everyone, adults included, but I can't find a cite for that. Here is a British study recommending rear-facing seats up to 4 years. What ever happened to those station wagons with rear-facing back seats anyway?

Oh, and you probably installed your car seat wrong (this is why the likes of fire departments and AAA offer car seat checks) and babies can't breathe very well in car seats even when they're properly buckled in (so the kid is better off spending as little time in the seat as possible). Maybe we should all just walk.
