My son moved from an infant carrier to a rear facing convertible car seat at 5 months. He is almost 16 months and still Rear Facing. We are going to keep him Rear Facing as long as possible. We have a car seat that rear faces to 45lbs. He won't be in just a seat belt for a very long time.
The Absolute minimum for most states is
Rear Facing until 1 year of age AND 20lbs.
Forward facing in a Harness to 4 AND 40lbs.
In a booster seat to 8 AND 80lbs.
Your child MUST meet BOTH requirements to be the legal minimum.
You should join a car seat safety group, you can get so much more information.

I switched out of the infant carrier before 6 months and put my son rear facing into a convertible seat. He's almost 20 months old now and still rear facing in a True Fit and a Radian XT. He should be able to stay rear facing until he is 3, maybe 4. His seats can forward face harnessed to 65 lbs and 80 lbs. He'll be in a booster after than until he can pass the seat belt fit test and has the maturity to sit properly in just a seat belt.
