It's ultimately your decision. I don't ERF, it's not for my family. Decide whats best for yours.

Its your child, your choice.

What is right for my family, is my kids sit rearfacing until the limits of their seats.  I feel like if I am ever in a car wreck, I want to walk away knowing that I have done everything I can to keep my kids safe.  I don't want to regret anything when it comes to my kids safety.  So, we rear face until they grow out of their seats.

Google "Extended Rear Facing," and then make your decision. There is tons of useful information.

I don't understand the negatives to ERF...like I don't understand why people don't do it. I'd love to know though. (and no, I'm not bashing or anything..I'm seriously curious)

Anyways, we ERF because it's safer and better for our family. I'd recommend you look into both options from an unbiased source (aka-not Cafemom, lol) and then make your decision.

You do know this post is going to turn into a bash-fest, right? FF against ERF's and KJGHSTY against :LKJSKJYIAU, etc., etc.

we dont ERF here but if your dd still fits in her seat rear facing i dont see any reason why to change it.

She will still EASILY fit rear facing and is 5 TIMES safer that way than forward.  She absolutely should remain rear facing as long as she will fit.
My 26 month old is 26lbs and still happily rear facing.
