Carseats Are Safer in the Middle

Mommy Alert! Baby Is Safest in the Middle

Babe belongs in the middle. Who said being a mother was convenient? When it comes to buckling up your lil one for a ride, new research shows that putting up the fight to muscle your tot into the center seat is actually worth the battle.

To see why,


Researcher Michael J. Kallan and colleagues conducted a study confirming that children belong in the middle. The study said:

Children under age three seated in the center of the back seat had nearly half the risk of injury in motor vehicle crashes than children seated in either of the other positions. . . Children seated in the center rear have a 43% lower risk of injury compared with children in a rear outboard position.

Nobody puts baby in the corner. And apparently they shouldn't put baby on the side, either. Where do you secure your tots?
