I took both my kids to the doctor for well-child checks. Our doctor started talking about how my youngest, who turned 2 year old today could face foward now. Am I the only one who was un-aware they changed it from a year to 2 years for foward facing? (I'm from Kansas). And also that kids under 40lbs are supposed to be in a 5 harness carseat? I've had my 3 year old in a booster seat for sometime now, because he's alread 3' 7". Honestly would think they'd annoynce something like this to the public a little better.Answer Question

I was aware of it, but its just a recommendation. They can be forward facing at a year and 20lbs but now they say that they are less likely to be injured in an accident if they are rear facing until 2. The actual law did not change, just the recommendation. That is probably why you hadn't heard of it before.
