Can You Put a Car Seat in the Front Seat?
The really short answer is - the front seat is NOT the place for the car seat.
Studies have repeatedly shown us that it's not a safe practice and puts your baby in unnecessary danger. The force of impact and the airbag deployment is lethal to a baby or child. In fact it is illegal to have a rear-facing child car seat in a front seat with airbags.
When the airbag is deployed it comes out at such high speeds that if it were to hit your child the consequences would be devastating. No parent wants to put their child in danger, and even though airbags can save an adult's life, they are deadly to children.
Once your child is old enough (or the correct weight and height) be sure to push the front seat back as far away from the dashboard as possible to decrease the force of the airbags impact.
In the interest of keeping your child as safe as possible, your child should sit in the back of the vehicle until they are ready. The American Association of Pediatrics recommends that all children ages 13 and under buckle up in the back seat for safety.
