What are the official car seat recommendations?

In April 2011 the American Academy of Pediatrics issued new guidelines for car seats. Infants should ride rear facing until they are 2 years old (the previous recommendation was 1 year and 20 lbs). They may then transition to a forward facing seat, preferably with a 5- point harness, until they reach the maximum height and weight for the seat. A belt-positioning booster seat is recommended until they are 4 feet 9 inches tall and are between 8 and 12 years old. Children under 13 should ride in the rear.
