proudly rear facing at 20 months!!!!!


Did you know that the American Academy of Pediatricians recommends that babies ride rear facing until 2 years old?

If you have a baby under two years old, google "extended rear facing" and make your own decision!

way to go mama! it also helps if your child is not XL and his feet hang over the seat:) he he! so needless to say, he faces forward!

You are right! It is a bit easier when you have an XS sized child.

But, do you know that their legs can crunch up on the backseat safely? Not sure how comfy it would be though....

Yay for rear facing!!! We plan to keep Porter rear facing until 35 pounds, the max of our carseat. He is tall but has no problem bending his legs, he also crosses them and sits indian style.

HE IS SO CUTE!!! :) Thanks for the info mama. I was going to do it anyway but wasn't sure why- it was just something I had heard that made sense. Now I know why :)
