Past two years anyway. I went to my WIC appointment today and they're now handing out pamphlets saying that to REDUCE RISK OF INJURY to you're child, they need to be FRONT FACING by two years of age. Hmmm. I'm pretty sure I've seen on here that you're supposed to ERF them until 4 and 5....so again I ask....are you sure?

I'd LOOOOVE to see a photo of said pamphlet!

You should switch professions since you're such a brilliant expert that you know all the research and testing was wrong all along!

Methinks you read the pamphlet wrong. Did you keep one? Let's see it? If not, do you remember anything specific about it so we can find it.

I doubt that's true,  either show a picture of the pamphlet or shut it!

I didn't take one because I never planned on ERFing my child to begin with. But I did pick it up and look at it. It said that ERFing is the way to go up until 2 years of age, unless they go above the height recommendations before then.

 ERFING can cause blood clots.
