I went to Wal-Mart last night with my daughter and parked the van next to another van. They had just parked too. Her husband got their son from a seat ( I think it was GN & the boy was like 5!) and then mom was getting the 2 (maybe a small 3 year old) from a rear facing MyRide.

I smiled at them and went to get Rachel out. The mom saw Rachel's MR and asked how old she was. I told her 18 months and she seemed surprised because she thought Rachel was about the 1 year mark. I told her that yeah she's on the tiny size and the mom commented on how many parents would of turned her FF by now. Of course I said that she'll be RF until the limit on her car seat and that I did the same thing with my son.

I've never met anyone else in real life who did extended rear facing.
