Please keep your child rear facing for as long as possible. Check out ERF in the group posts for plenty of information. There is a car seat group as well to help you make an informed decision. Baby has to stay, per law, rear facing til at least one year of age.

JoLee: Have you SEEN the crash test demonstrations? Rear facing is the safest for everyone, even adults. Because children are small they are even more at risk at being front facing. It's crash physics and children can be spared the most horrific of injuries if their parents would just rear face them for the first 4 or 5 years (or until they outgrow the maximum weight limit on the highest rated seat). Watch the videos OP. It is not ridiculous to rear face children for a long time. It also is not an issue if their legs are bent and touching the seat. The one year 20lb rule is very outdated. The laws have not caught up to the knowledge yet.
