the straps are set on the highest level, and they seem to pull down on her shoulders. i can loosen them, but she's still too tall for it almost. her feet stick out past the edge of the carseat. she was 19.6 pounds at her 9 month checkup so im sure she's closer to 20 if not there yet. here in florida, the law is 20 pounds AND 1 year. but she looks so uncomfortable in it and almost too big for it, she can get away with it for now uncomfortably but i really don't see her making it to a year. at the same time though, she's not that tall.. only about 28 inches. i dont understand why she's too "long" for her carseat considering she's only in the 50th percentile for height. would it be horrible of me to switch her to a 5 point front facing seat within the next month?

I would buy a convertible car seat (one that can be rear faced and then converted to a forward facing car seat). Most babies out grow their infant car seat by 6-8 months. My son out grew his by 4 months so we used the convertible car seat.

I have 5 kids and I've NEVER had one of them make it to a year in their infant seat. My oldest 2 were in it until 4 months each (they outgrew the length), my other 2 were about 6-7 months (but the one was shorter than the first 2 and the 2nd had a different seat that had higher limits). My youngest is 4 months and his seat goes to 35lbs and 32". He's already 25" long so he's not going to make it to a year. He's only got one slot left for the straps.
After the infant seat they go to a rear facing convertible seat.
