Rearfaced until they outgrow a convertible seat in either height or weight. I do it because it is safer and my children are not a bare minimum.

Ok, you didn't really specify. I rear face past one. It's safer.

National guidelines suggest rear facing until two so that's what I'll be doing. In Georgia though, you legally only have to rear face to one year.

My son's b-day is in 2 weeks and he is already 23lbs so technically he meets the requirements to FF once his b-day comes but i feel like im getting attacked because i am considering FF.

Here in Florida it's the same law.

I plan on rear facing until my son outgrows his convertible - so 3-4.

Why? Not because it's the law, but because it's the safest thing for him.

It is really inconvenient to have him rear-facing. My seat is moved all the way forward, and passengers don't like riding with me. IDGAF. My child's safety trumps my comfort or my passenger's comfort. Having a kid and being a mom means doing what is BEST for the child.

My kids are 14 months old and 4 years old, and they forward face. Have since they turned one.
That's just how we "roll". ;)
