In all states, it is 1 yr AND 20lbs. However, it is significantly safer to keep them rear facing until AT LEAST. 2 yrs and 30lbs in a proper convertible car seat.

I would keep her rear facing to the limit of the seat.

I personally would stay rear facing but, you should research and make an informed decision from there.

Here in canada it's a year and 22 and a half pounds. I plan on keeping my dd rearfacing much longer though, shes such a tiney girl I'm scared she would get hurt

I would go with the laws in your state and what your pediatrician suggest
