What are your thoughts on extended rear facing?

Nobody? Traci, I know you have something to say!

We will definitely be practicing ERF. It is SO much safer! I've come this far too have a kid, I'm not about to risk their life turning them early.

Well??? I don't know if I would like that or not....I have to think about that one for a while. My kids are always so much happier when they can see where they are going. I know that does not validate risking their lives unduly...but??? My car that I use most of the time is a Ford E350 15 passenger van and I have to say that I would have to roll it to have anyone inside truly hurt...I always worry about hitting someone else and hurting them with it to be honest....boy, I got sidetracked didn't I? Today would be a good day to be on the phone...I would be a bundle of conversation!

My son was forward facing right at a year, no matter the carseat his gangly long legs were just cramped up! My daughter was rear facing until 18 months! She is very petite (short) so I wasn't in any rush.

My first daughter was a short chunky little person and went over the 20lbs limit way sooner than I would have liked. So she was in a forward facing pretty early.

Because I was not ready to move my first up when she hit the limit, for my second I went out and bought the super size infant carseat by Graco. I LOVE LOVE my car seat and my 17 month old still loves her seat even if she is rear facing. She will probably out grow her seat at about two as she has like 9 more lbs and 4 more inches before she is too big.

She loves her seat so much I am worried if she will have issues giving it to her new sibling in September. I can go out and buy an infant seat that goes 35 lbs and 35 inches tall and give her a few more months. More than likely though 2 years will have to be enough so we can put the baby in her seat.
