Personally, I am huge on car seat safety! Cade has extended rear faced until just now that he has reached the max. weight limit for his convertible car seat of 40lbs. One sad mommy here! Cade is 3 years old, so he is well over the legal law requirement for the state of Wisconsin which states babies must be at least 1 year AND 20 pounds in order to forward face. No way, Jose! That is SO tiny! Ezio is still rear facing and will continue to until he reached the max. weight limit of his convertible car seat which is also 40lbs. He is currently 20 months old and 26lbs, so hopefully we can make it to 3 years old like we did with Cade.
Did you know that the new recommendation for the minimum length of rear facing is actually two years old? While I would love for them to make this recommendation an updated law, I know it wouldn't matter amongst many families. Here in the city it is pretty rare to see a baby, toddler or child in a car seat properly or even at all! It is very scary, but I believe the real problem is that there is not enough correct car seat education being taught to new and expectant mothers.
