Yuma, Arizona - The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children ride rear-facing to age 2 or older. Your child should remain in a rear-facing car seat until the child reaches the top height or weight limit allowed by your car seat’s manufacturer. Once your child outgrows the rear-facing car seat, your child is ready to travel in a forward-facing car seat with a harness. However, always remember that the longer your child travels rear facing the safer they will be.

He  says, "Children should work back into a school year sleep schedule gradually, starting a week or two before the first bell rings."
