Read this in another post and it's the first time I've ever seen this term used. What exactly do you think is EXTENDED Rear Facing?

Other: until the child reaches the limit of the carseat. For my Britax roundabout 55 that's like 40 pounds and 46 inches.

To the limits of the seat... I thought it was more weight than age (2 years still minimum).

Same here... We are going for weight and mine goes to 40 so not sure when that will be.

I chose 2-3 yrs. I switched DS at 2 because he maxed the weight limit. DD is 18 months and no where near the weight/height limits. Heck she still doesn't pass the legal minimum! I plan to max out the seat before turning her. Safety first.

My DD is 21 months and will be rear facing until she's at LEAST 2 years old. I know so many people who have switched their child to forward facing between 9-12 months and I just don't understand it. =[

My daughter's seat is up to 35 pounds but she's five months and her head almost reaches the top of the seat (very tall)... I guess I'll have to look up what to do then.
