How long do you plan to keep your LO rear facing?? I asked Benjamin's pedi what he though about it & he said if we could drive rear facing it would be soooo much safer...if we could see lol. Scary stuff!

My son turned 2 a week ago and is still rear facing. He weighs 30 pounds and is 36" tall. He will stay RF as long as absolutely possible.

Thanks for getting the word out there, not enough people realize how important it is to stay rear facing for an extended amount of time.

It is so scary how many people are unaware of what could happen when forward facing!! Anyways, I am currently carseat shopping...I am thinking that will be my main first birthday 'present'...I figure everyone else will be bringing actual presents! But I am definetly going to try to find a carseat that can stay rear-facing as long as possible!! Thanks for looking/ giving your feed back!!

:] Oh yay!! Thank you! I had no idea!! I will have to keep an eye out! I am somewhat undecided as far as what carseat..I am the MOST indecisive person on the planet lol. I have to just make a fast decision or I will dwell & have buyers remorse until my dying day
