My kids are well past the age of car seats but I have seen this term around here a lot and I'm curious. So will you all answer a couple of questions for me?
1. basic definition-I assume it just means keeping the child rear facing longer than the 20lbs recommened. Correct?
2. Why? Safety? Any proof or studies on it?
3. How long?
4. Do your children protest or mind it?

extended rear facing and extended harnessing are both for the safety of the child. here is a link to a car seat safety website with more information on it.
My daughter also reached the height limit for her rear facing seat before she maxed out the weight limit - she was not quite 2 when I turned her around. I plan on keeping my 11 month old son rear facing until he is either too tall or weighs too much (most likely too tall - he's long and lean) - We did get a different rear facing seat with him, though, and it accomodates taller kids than our previous seat, so hopefully he'll be a little older than his sister.
