No. They can't face forward until they are both 1yr. AND 20lbs. If your child reaches 20lbs. before 1yr. you can/should switch to a rear-facing convertible carseat. It is actually 5x safer for babies and toddlers to remain rearfacing. A baby who is switched forward before 1yr. is at risk for internal decapitation during an accident.
