Extended rear facing. A child must be rear facing in their carseat until they are AT LEAST 1 year old and 20lbs. ERF is when you decide to keep your child rear facing past the bare minimum, it's 5 times safer than forward facing and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends doing so until at least 2 years old and 30lbs.

Rear facing past the minimum of 1 year and 20lbs. AAP, IIHS, NHTSA, Children's Hospital all recommene RF for as long as possible.

Extended rear facing.

It is 500% safer for children  and it is recommended that children should ride rear facing to the limits of their convertible seat.
