Why? Because she has tonic/clonic seizures, and if I can see her and check on her, I prefer it be that way.
Why else? Because I WANT TO. She's extremely active and hates the car. It's SAFE and LEGAL.
Bash away! (;
EDIT: for the psychos who stalked my profile, let me save ya some time! I'm 22. I'm a veteran, as well as a college graduate. I'm married, have owned my own home since I was 19, and we have 3 vehicles. I hope that's "cute" enough for you fine ladies.
Btw, my daughters neurologist is at Vanderbit Children's hospital in Nashville. She has NEVER recommended that I make my toddler sit in a car like an infant until she's a kindergartener. Neither has her pediatrician, who is also at Vanderbilt. Noone I know, and noone I have ever met or seen has their kid rear facing until they are in preschoolers. I have NEVER heard of it until CM. If forward facing my kid is NEARLY as "dangerous" as you believe, it would be a law. Obviously.
Now, I'm going to enjoy my daughter. I'm not ignoring you because I "can't explain my choice", it's because I already have. Now you sharks enjoy your day and feast off of each other for a little while. 😜
