The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants be secured in a rear-facing car seat until they are at least one year of age and 20 lbs... to reduce the risk of cervical spine injury in the event of a crash... Since an infants head size is very large relative to body size and the neck is still developing strength, a rear-facing car seat is safer because it better supports an infants head and back in the event of a frontal crash...
