For those who love Infographics - www.infographiclist.com
I agree with the other commenter that there is great information in this as well as some inaccuracies. The American Academy of Prediatrics now recommends keeping children resurfacing to at least age 2 and them as long as the child restraint allows. My daughter is 3, and in the 85-90% range for weight and height and is still rear facing and is perfectly happy with it. Also, I have started my kids in swim lessons/water survival last fall, and my son who has developmental delays and a short attention span is nearly able to swim at age 4 1/2.
Most of this information is great, but there is one HUGE flaw, with swimming. I have taught swim lessons for 2 years, and children over three are perfectly capable of swimming and understanding basic water safety with regular lessons. If you live near water, waiting until your child is 6 years old to start swimming will probably result in a terrible fear of the water. The earlier you start, the more comfortable your child will be in the water. Attention span my patootie.
