Child Passenger Safety Week Day 4 – Rear-Facing Harness Position (GIVEAWAY)

Print Friendly

Rear-Facing Harness

Congrats to our winners –

Entry #1626 – Sappho W.

Entry #1170 – Angeline R.

It’s Day 4 of Child Passenger Safety Week and since yesterday was all about forward-facing, today is all about the rear-facing harness position. When your child is rear-facing (and this *should* be until the child is AT LEAST 2 years old and preferably up to maximum weight/height limits of their convertible car seat!), the top part of the harness should be threaded through the slots that are at or below the child’s shoulders. Never above!!

Rear-facing = AT OR BELOW THE SHOULDERS

Also, keep those harnesses snug. Not loosy-goosey! Loose harness straps leave your child vulnerable to injury during a crash because they may allow your child to move out of position, and they can even lead to ejection from the car seat during a crash. Now, that we all know where the harness goes on a child in a rear-facing car seat and it needs to be snug, bear with me as I get on my soapbox on why you should keep your child rear-facing longer.

Extended rear-facing is SAFEST! End. Of. Story.

Okay, not really the end of story. The absolute minimum is to keep your child rear facing to AT LEAST one year of age AND 20 pounds in weight.  When it comes to your baby’s safety, is “minimum” really worth it? Nope. That is why we agree with the American Academy of Pediatrics that you should keep your child rear-facing until at least 2 years old! Why? Well, Car-Safety.org says it best:

  • Rear-facing is safest for both adults and children, but especially for babies, who would face a greater risk of spinal cord injury in a front-facing carseat during a frontal crash.
  • Rear-facing car seats spread frontal crash forces over the whole area of a child’s back, head and neck; they also prevent the head from snapping relative to the body in a frontal crash.
  • Rear-facing carseats may not be quite as effective in a rear end crash, but severe frontal and frontal offset crashes are far more frequent and far more severe than severe rear end crashes.
  • Rear-facing carseats are NOT a safety risk just because a child’s legs are bent at the knees or because they can touch/kick the vehicle seat.
  • Rear-facing as long as possible is the recommendation of the American Academy of Pediatricians, and can reduce injuries and deaths.   Motor vehicle crashes are the #1 overall cause of death for children 14 and under.

We aren’t preaching…just sayin’.  #justsavin’babies

Okay, back to the task at hand and that is rear-facing harness height! It’s important. Since many parents are positioning the harnesses in a rear-facing seat incorrectly, we are going to help spread the word with another contest/giveaway today. This is another full participation giveaway but we won’t make you take photos today. (There are bonus entries if you do but it’s not the main event.) Above is a photo we took that we would like you to share. That takes some of the work off of you.

WHAT IS UP FOR GRABS:

TWO lucky participants will win a Britax G3 Convertible Car Seat of their choice. This giveaway is open to US residents only! (Yep, we want to get as many of these fabulous bad boys in parent’s hands that we can this week!)

Brirax G3

Below are some of the entry methods explained in case you are just joining us today. All entry methods need to be completed and marked off on the Rafflecopter entry form at the bottom for you to actually be entered to win!

2) Let your Facebook friends know where the safest position for the rear-facing harness is and tag The Baby Gizmo Company (put @BabyGizmo) in your Facebook post so that we know you did it. (When you type the “@” sign in your Facebook status and start typing BabyGizmo, a drop down box should appear to choose the company if you LIKE us on Facebook, of course!)

3) Take a photo of your rear-facing child in a car seat with the harness AT OR BELOW the child’s shoulders and post it on our Baby Gizmo Facebook Wall. Below is a graphic of where you would go on our Facebook page to post a photo!

4) “PIN” our Baby Gizmo photo (above) of the correct rear-facing harness position on one of your Pinterest boards and put “BabyGizmo.com reminded me that the harness in a rear-facing car seat should be AT OR BELOW the child’s shoulders” in the pin description.

5) Follow the directions on the Rafflecopter widget below to make sure you are entered and for more entry opportunities for those parents who do not have a rear-facing child!
