My DD turned 1 last week. She is 20 lbs, and I plan on keeping her RF as long as I can, but am aiming at least 1 more year (DH thinks I'm nutty!) I had multiple comments at her b-day party as to why she was still RF. Everyone had to check out the new Sienna-so they saw the RF seat. I simply said "RF is safest" This is fine most of the time, but I am finding people questioning my decision more and more, so often I add that I would like to follow the current AAP recommendations to keep her RF til she outgrows the rf limits of her seat. I have had all kinds of comments telling me the old 1 yr + 20 lbs thing, and some parents say rudely "I think I know what is safest for my child." One such comment came from a friend who bought a MA because "she's done all the research and knows that the MA seat provides superior protection to anything else." Her 27 in. 22 lb 10 month old is FF-I won't go there! So how do you justify your decision to keep your child RF without sounding like you are protecting your child more than they are? Honestly I don't care when others choose to change their kids to FF-although I will tell people that I know well the minimum recommendation of 20 lbs AND 1 year. Thanks for any advice you all have!
