Effective November 1, 2019, the law states that all children under the age of 2 must use a rear-facing car seat. There are 3 types of rear-facing car seats: Infant Seats, Convertible Seats, and All-in-One Seats.
It is recommended that infants and toddlers ride in a rear-facing seat until they reach the weight or height limit of the seat. Most children will outgrow a rear-facing infant seat before reaching their 2nd birthday. If the child has outgrown an infant seat, it is recommended that a larger, rear-facing Convertible or All-in-One car seat with higher rear-facing height and weight limits be used. These seats should be installed in the rear-facing position until the child reaches the rear-facing weight or height limit set by the car seat manufacturer.
