A 3 year old sitting like a baby?

My son is 3, almost 4 and I was chatting with another mom at his school today while I was waiting to pick my boy up. We continued our conversation and walked in to the parking lot together. I was parked right next to her! We kept talking while my son got in to his seat and her daughter got in to hers. But it was the weirdest thing. Her daughter was backwards in the seat, you know like how you put a baby in.

I've never seen this before is this because she has some sort of disability or something? I didn't want to be insensitive and ask the mom. Does anyone know what that could be?

A lot of moms rear face until 4 or even 5 depending on seat limitations. It's much safer than forward facing.

Some moms rear face for an extended period due to weight or height. It is a safety thing. You are supposed to rear face til 2 years now.

It's extended rear facing.  Most likely she had a convertible seat.  It's proven to be safer.  The AAP actually recommends that you keep them rear facing until 2 or they reach the rear facing limits of the seat.


"Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification"  Romans 14:19
