My son is 11 months old, 24 pounds and of course still rear facing and his seat is reclined. Is the seat supposed to stay reclined the whole time it is rear facing or can it sit up staighter? Thanks!!!

The 45 degree recline is only meant for newborns who can't support their head yet. Once they have the head control, it can be much higher than 45 degrees, but no more than 30 degrees. HTH
