Here's some information about the Key things that's worth knowing.
Rear facing a child until or beyond at least 4 years of age has been scientifically proven to be the safest direction for a child to face when in a vehicle. When in a collision the forces push the child into the seat, therefore the car seat shell absorbs the majority of the impact rather than the child's spine and organs, like they would when pushed forwards into the harness of a forward facing car seat.
Currently, there are two regulations running alongside one another ( confusing right? ) there is the ECE R44/04, which is weight-based and scarily states that a child can be placed forward facing from as little as 9kg, for context our higher centile son was 9kg at around 7 months of age.
Then there is also the R129, commonly known as i-size. Which is height based and states a child must remain rear-facing until at least the age of 15 months old. The next stage seats are then height based and cannot be used past the height limit.
The Swedish Plus Test is a voluntary test in which manufacturers/ brands can submit to have their seats tested in this extremely rigorous crash test. A seat that has passed this test is confirmed to offer further protection to the child's spine, as the test measures the forces which are subjected to the child's neck when in a collision.This reduces the risk of life threatening injuries exposed by a frontal collision.
