My brother and SIL's daughter just turned 2. She's been facing forward for at least six months. She's a very tall child and when my SIL asked me how long I was going to keep Katy (16 months) rear facing and I explained the whole thing about protecting the spine and how it isn't going to bother their legs my SIL said her pediatrician said that the child could push with her legs and push herself right out of the top of the straps. This sounds fishy to me, but my SIL isn't really agreeing with the reasons I give for extended rear facing. The girl also isn't strapped in quite as snug as a hug and her chest buckle is a little low imo. What do you do in a situation like that? She's not rude about it. She just sticks with the "my pedi says..."
