Many states require that infants be kept in a rear facing car seat until age 1, or 20 lbs, though pediatricians recently recommended that this be extended to age 2.
Rear facing car seats are safer for children because their neck muscles are still developing, and in case of accident, too much strain is placed on the neck if they are in a forward facing car seat. Check out the links below for regulations by state.
