According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, you should never seat your child in front of an air bag. Deployment of air bags may hurt infants and little kids. You should always seat your child in the rear seat.
- If for some reason you have to place your child (with the front-facing safety seats) in the front seat of the car, the seat should be moved as far back as possible from the dashboard to protect the child from getting hit by deployed air bags or the dashboard itself.
- Never put your infants with a rear facing restraint in the front seat.
