    Turned my 2.5 year-old back rear-facing!

    We had turned him around at 2 after much whining and complaining. I regretted it but dh wanted him ffing. He was 27.5 lbs and 36 inches. He's now 28.5 lbs and 36.5 inches and has an inch of growth still to go before he'll outgrow it. He's 2.5 now. And he is loving being "backwards". So I'm planning to keep him this way. I was surprised that he didn't fuss about it and now I'll just have to deal with dh when he gets back from his business trip.

    I'm jealous - 2 1/2 is when my dd outgrew her seat RF by weight (35 lbs).

    Congrats!
