When to switch to front facing car seat

It would be advisable to switch to front-facing car seats as soon as possible.
front facing car seat has two major safety benefits, airbag and impact protection for the face. keeping your infant rearfaced beyond one year of age is not recommended because the head and neck will continue to grow, placing them at increased risk of spinal cord injuries. further, it puts infants at risk of injury if their air bag deploys during a crash. a rear-facing child can also suffer from impulse death syndrome where they could suffer fatal injuries that result from an unexpected head acceleration because they are moving towards the back window at a high rate of speed and then slam into it with surprise force after impacting with another vehicle or other object in those critical milliseconds
