I just wanted to add that it's definitely safer to turn FF than to use the seat over the RF limit. The seat could fail and it will be very very dangerous. I know babies that reach 35lbs at 13mo or so and that's really sad we cant get those foreign seats, but most kids can make it way longer. Weight gain usually slows down a LOT after the first year so you dont have to be so worried yet. We're happy you learned about the benefits and will keep your child RF as long as possible. If you want start another thread with more info on your car, baby's height, your budget etc and we'll help you choose a convertible. Welcome!
Any chance of sharing this sheet?? I just found this post - I'm a new member here - and would like to share the "quick & dirty" with a few other forums. I've already linked one of them into this.Yeah - I made a quick 1 sheeter - with a "What... you want me to rear face my baby to 2? Why?" sheet... (yeah I know... longer then 2 would be ideal... but BELIEVE me... I would be jumping for JOY if I could get some of these families to rear face their baby past 1 at all!)
I was wondering if there is any update on this or would it be best to check on the site?Currently, I am awaiting a response from the Chief Counsels Office of NHTSA, of a letter I sent with 16 very specific questions regarding their supporting evidence of turning babies forward facing at 12 mo/ 20 lbs. Simply, how did they arrive at that threshold.
Stay tuned......it'll be interesting.
