This is a completely serious, not judgemental question. I've asked before but I've never received any answers.

Why do you forward face your child when they could still be safely and comfortably riding rear facing?

She is RF now, but I had her turned FF after age 1 for 3 months because I thought that was just the way it was! I though it was the law to turn them around and I knew nothing about RF weight limits or anything!

dd was rear facing up until a month ago...we couldnt get the car seat installed properly, so we ff her with a much better install...the fire department here just put up signs that they will install your seat, so I'm going to take it over there and get them to install it rf

For the reconrd, I think all you posts on this matter are judgemental. You feel very strongly about it, which is fine, but you persist in making these threads.

Anyway, If i knew then what I know know, I'd kee my girls rf for longer. I am trying to convince my SIL to keep my nephew RF longer. He is 7 months and his Dr said they can turn him around now. Luckily the car seat theyhave is only RF so they have to keep him that way until they buy a new one.

I turned my son around so when he rode in the backseat and I was driving either my mom or whoever was in the front seat with me could attend to his needs, or if it was just me and him he rode in the front so I didn't have to turn around to the back to attend to him while driving... and he likes watching where we're going rather then staring at the back of a seat or where we've been. I honestly don't think he'd be as good of a car rider if he was rear facing, he just likes seeing where he is going. And I always remind myself, car seats and boosters are a new thing, when my brothers were little they were lined up and stood in the back area between the back window and the front seat, or they just rode in there seats, or held as babies in there moms arms (this is 30-50 years ago) and when I was little I was either held in my mothers arms or in a seat that just lifted up to get out of (24 years ago). And I guess the last reason I can give you is that my son takes after his father in height and weight, at 3 1/2 he is the size of an average 6 year old.

my son had such severe reflux issues that it was much safer to turn him around than to leave him at a lower angle and risk him vomiting and choking to death.

I was very judgemental but now I am really just trying learn myself and also educate.

Please do convince them, 7 months isn't even legal.

I am just curious to know what some of the reasons are. I just don't want to hear those people with their "Ugh, another post, la la la" that kind of BS because in reality I can post whatever I want, wherever I want, however many times I want as long as it's in the rules.

do u two realize that kids grow differently than others and that maybe your nephew's dr is saying to ff his because he is too big to rf? i had a friend that had to turn her son ff at about 6 months because he was too big and could have ended up with muscular damage in his legs if he hadnt been ff.
