    Is this right...can my child stay rear-facing until tops of ears even w/shell...

    I just read this on Britax's website in response to the question "Is there a standing rear height limit on the Roundabout?"
    "There is NO "standing height" limit for rear-facing on the Roundabout or Advantage
    old-new, LATCH-non-LATCH). The child is too tall rear-facing when the tops of the ears are even with the top of the shell."

    I always read that the top of the head had to be one inch below the top of shell and once this is exceeded the child would have to go forward facing.

    I have a Britax Roundabout (non-Latch) and the website (not my manual) says that the weight limit rearfacing is now 33lbs. My child is only 27 pounds, but he has a long torso and his head is within an inch from the top and I so want him to stay the Britax quote right and is it safe..if so he could stay rear-facing a long time. TIA
    p.s. here is the link to that quote
