Front facing or rear facing? Which one is the best? When a child is placed front facing in the car seat injuries can be more severe. This is because during a collision the child’s neck can be thrown forward, creating a stress on the spinal cord. The spinal cord is very important and even the slightest damage can cause tremendous injuries, such as paralysis or even death. When a child is rear facing in a car seat their bodies are cradled, supporting the head and neck securely. This keeps the head, neck, and spine fully aligned. The longer a child can ride in the rear facing position, the better protected his or her spinal cord will be in a collision.
