The American Academy of Pediatric has changed the carseat regulations. Now ALL CHILDREN need to be in a REAR-FACING carseat until the AGE OF 2.

You can read more in the article. Keep your toddler in a rear-facing car seat until age 2 (not 1) -- O’Keefe 30 (4): 12 -- AAP News

At least they're recommending a rear-facing convertible seat too, my kids are tall like me and get squished in the infant seat by 10 months. But I don't think even that would last them till they're 2. They'd be sitting cross legged in the seat!

Brandon is forward facing but he's almost 2. The law here in AZ is rear facing until 1 and 20lbs. It'd polly be safer if we were all rear facing
