      At least a year. Now they are recommending at least two years. I go by whatever my car seat says.

          Tristen was 10 months. But he was 25 lbs and really tall. The doc told is to switch him because his head was up above the rear facing seat. I hated switching him that early but we didn't have much choice. Even at only 2 he's almost outgrown the front facing car seat we have.

          Yes! My son was like that. Andrew was in a booster seat early.

            Our son sat rear facing in my car up until he was 21 months old. When we are in our truck however, because of room, he sat forward facing when he was about 18 months or so.

              Bentleys still rear facing call me paranoid but I'd rather him have a broken leg than a broken neck

              Our youngest will stay rear facing as long as she fits the weight on the car seat she's in.

              You're not paranoid. If he is small I can totally see the point in that. I would do the same if I could.

              He is pretty tiny he weighs a lot but it's muscle and he's short

                I kept Jonah rear facing until he was 15 months. His carseat was not as tight as I wanted it to be for rear facing (it locks in better forward), but also, his legs were beginning to scrunch up. He is in the 50-75 percentile for weight and height.

                  I switched my oldest to a front facing car right after her first birthday, but the carseat laws in Pennsylvania have changed since then and now you should keep them rear facing four as long as they fit comfortably or at least 3 years old. My oldest is seven and is in a booster seat, she has to stay in a booster seat until she is at least eight years old, but again they recommend keeping them in a booster seat until 12, if you can.
