Many parents can’t wait to move their kids to the forward-facing position in the back seat. After all, it’s easier to keep an eye on the kids when they’re facing forward; plus the kids have something more interesting to look at.
As a certified Child Passenger Safety Technician, I am extremely passionate about keeping kids safe in the car. To learn about all the pros of extended rear-facing that heavily outweigh the cons, stop by the Car Seat Safety board here on Justmommies
My 14 month old is also still rear-facing and that has worked very well for us so far. Since reading about the benefits of extended rear-facing, I'm happy to see the recommendations changing and more people deciding to keep thier children RFing for longer.
We definitely fell into the category of disruptive child! My son cried constantly when in his car seat. It became more dangerous to have him facing backwards, due to the distraction, then the trade off in safety from turning him around. So forward facing it is! We kept my DD facing backwards until two because she loved it. Now they are both getting big and the best of friends! I love how much they love each other!!! See my image of them loving on one another below!
